Play Haven child care on Madison’s east side to close

The staffing crisis that has plagued day care centers in recent years has claimed another victim, as Play Haven on Madison’s east side is closing its doors indefinitely as of March 3, according to a report from Channel3000.

The Play Haven location on Atlas Court has been open since 1991, but over the past three years its staff has steadily shrunk and currently the facility only has three full-time staff members. The site has had to supplement its staffing numbers with staff from Play Haven’s original Sun Prairie location.

Approximately 20 families are impacted by the closure.
