Child with scratches on her face from daycare negligenceSPRING, Texas — The mother of a 2-year-old girl has taken legal action, with representation from The Button Law Firm, against Spell Well Montessori School, alleging that caregivers lost track of her child, leading to a series of safety violations. In June 2023, the mother received notification from the school about scratches on her daughter's face, prompting her to seek answers by questioning the school’s staff.

Caregiver's Conflicting Accounts: Unraveling the Spell Well Montessori Cover-Up

According to the lawsuit, administrators at Spell Well Montessori initially provided vague explanations for her daughter’s injury. However, they eventually admitted that the toddler had been found alone outside the facility. Disturbingly, the school couldn't clarify how or when the child managed to exit the premises.

To exacerbate the situation, the caregiver responsible for the child and the school administration provided five different versions of the incident to the mom and state investigators. The lawsuit also reveals that the video footage for the toddler's classroom was mysteriously "lost" and "unavailable" despite the absence of issues with other classroom recordings that day.

The school’s repeated lapses in judgment show they do not share that priority. This lawsuit is about standing up for my family and other working parents who rely on childcare."
