Discovery Childcare Center a 1413 Sharloh Loop in east Bismarck has closed.

According to the North Dakota Department of Human Services, the Discovery Childcare Center in east Bismarck has closed. The center had previously received numerous complaints and a the state has now revoked its license.

Since the center opened in March 2015, Burleigh County Social Services received 20 complaints against the facility. The complaints ranged from lack of supervision to inadequate food for children. On June 27, the state Human Services Department notified the center that its license was being revoked. The center has since appealed, but is now shut down.

A note was left on the door Thursday by owner Danny Zimmerman saying the center was closing effective immediately due to new state regulations and clients not keeping up with their outstanding balances. Zimmerman also owns a day care in Mandan that remains open.
