Unlicensed Day Care Shut Down After Toddler’s Death

Emergency responders were called to The Kinder Garden last week after a napping toddler wouldn't awake

An unlicensed day care in Nashua, New Hampshire has been ordered to shut down and come into compliance with state law after a 15-month-old boy was found unresponsive there and later died. 

Emergency responders were called to The Kinder Garden last week after a napping toddler wouldn't awake. The unidentified boy died at a hospital.

Police say an autopsy report could take months. There were no signs of trauma. 

Police say eight children were in the home at the time, ranging in age from 7 months to 14 years. Three were related to property owners Shane and Erica Lavalley. 

State health officials say the home wasn't a licensed day care. 

A lawyer for the Lavalleys tells The (Nashua) Telegraph they're saddened by the death, but aren't suspected of any criminal wrongdoing.
