(KSL News) The State Health Department issued citations today to the daycare where a 3-year-old girl wandered out unnoticed.

Wunderkind in Provo has been the center of an investigation ever since a girl who was supposed to be in daycare ended up at her mom's work. It wasn't the first time a child had walked out of the center.

Investigators cited Wunderkind for lack of supervision, improper discipline and inadequate training. The center will operate under a conditional license until owners prove over the next six months they've addressed the problems.

A health department spokesman told us this is a good reminder that they can help parents choose quality daycare centers.

Tom Hudachko, with the Utah Dept. of Health, said, "The safety of their children should be an utmost priority, and we're there to help parents make those kinds of decisions."

The health department tracks violations and investigates complaints from parents.
