BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A Bangor daycare will be closing its doors in two weeks, leaving parents and teachers both upset and scrambling. Parents at Life Academy Daycare were shocked Tuesday morning when they were told the daycare would be closing. The reason given was that Grace Church, which houses the daycare, can no longer afford to keep its doors open.
"It was a complete shock, honestly, unexpected. It was very hard for all of us," said Kerrie Knaide, whose 3-year-old son attends the daycare said,
On Wednesday, parents and teachers were still processing the news. The closure will leave more than 100 kids in need of a new daycare and 19 staffers in need of a new job. For some parents, this closure is like losing their second family.
