The owners of several day care centers in Queens are accused of defrauding the Department of Education out of more than $35,000.
A report released by the Special Commissioner of Investigation found that the owners registered at least 12 children who did not attend their programs and submitted false attendance forms and invoices to receive payment.
Commissioner Richard Condon is recommending that the DOE stop doing business with Nareesa and Saied Mohammed.
They own Nareesa's Day Care and The Beanstalk Day Care in Richmond Hill.
The findings were referred to the Queens District Attorney.
