As hardworking parents, the one guaranteed factor in your busy day is picking up your child from daycare at the end of a stressful workday to enjoy their love and happiness. But what happens when you can’t go home with your child because the daycare staff neglected to follow simple safety procedures. That simple procedure that was ignored has now taken your child’s precious life away and all you’re left with is an empty space in your heart and your life.
Unfortunately, this is the reality some parents will have to face because daycare employees were careless in deciding not to follow the safety procedures placed to protect children from any injuries or death.
Enough Is Enough
A parent’s worst nightmare quickly became a reality on a hot Texas afternoon, so hot that temperatures were pushing 100 degrees Fahrenheit, a father went to pick up his son from daycare to find out his son had been forgotten about and locked in a van for four hours causing his death.
Discovering Me Academy in Houston, Texas failed to protect the life of a child under their care by forgetting the child inside a hot van. No parent should have to lose a child due to daycare negligence. Parents will intensively research and interview daycare providers to ensure their child will be with trustworthy and responsible grownups. For a daycare to not value a child’s life enough to just forget them inside a hot van is completely unacceptable.
