A daycare provider in Dansivlle accused of leaving children in her care, home alone, went before a judge Wednesday.
Shelly Sick's daycare license has been suspended and revoked by the state. Now, Sick is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and misrepresentation.
Dansville Police Chief Charlie Perkins says Sick had gone to McDonald's to get food for herself. Chief Perkins says social services contacted police after receiving a tip.
Police met social services at the home last Friday. According to the chief, officials heard kids playing inside the house without an adult present.
The chief says police confronted Sick when she came back.
According to police, the children ranged in age from 7 months to 3 years old.
Neighbors tell News10NBC Sick usually cares for about half a dozen children and some neighbors say the accusations are shocking.
Sick has 10 days to ask for a hearing on the suspension and 30 days to request a hearing on the revocation.
