Greensboro -- Good news for a Greensboro daycare that closed in the spring. The owner of His Glory Daycare called to inform WFMY News 2 that they have reopened.
The Daycare is now in a new building on Yanceyville Street, acros from the former location, and leasing from different owners.
In mid April dozens of parents found themselves with no place to take their children after His Glory Child Development Center closed.
At the time, the daycare owner told WFMY News 2 that the landlord, Kotis Holdings, would not allow the business to renew its monthly lease.
WFMY News 2 spoke to parents who said they couldn't believe the landlord would put their kids on the street.
WFMY News 2 contacted Kotis Holdings who emailed this response:
"Ms. Foster informed us that she would be relocating her daycare to a new location in 2011, then later asked for an extension until the end of 2012 which we granted, and has continued to postpone the move due to delays on her part.
Last year we informed Ms. Foster that Piedmont Natural Gas was requiring changes in the Premises, as a high pressure pipeline runs near the playground. Ms. Foster was unwilling to make the changes to the premises to ensure the safety of the children under her care.
We regret that construction of her new premises have languished for almost two years, but we cannot be responsible for Ms. Foster's or her new landlord's delays. We feel her actions are irresponsible and unfortunately impact those parents and children that rely on her services."
The information center spoke to the daycare owner, Deborah Foster, to find out if what Kotis Holdings said was true. She said Kotis Holdings mentioned the change and knew about the high pressure pipeline, but was not told it needed to be done by a certain date.
Foster says she is only asking for two more months in this building. She says she is renovating a facility across the street but says it will not be complete until then.
