(KMOV)-- An Metro East day care will be closing its doors for good leaving parents and workers scrambling.
The Department of Children and Family services told Lil' Munchkins in Belleville to close its doors or get shut down by the state.
This comes after a list of complaints including not enough food and water for kids, lack of supervision, and failure to properly clean and sanitize.
The day care's owners say the claims are unsubstantiated, but workers there say it's legit.
The owners said they hope to open a new day care outside of Illinois and are considering a lawsuit against the state.
