BLF Clients Featured in Galveston County Daily NewsGALVESTON, Texas – The Galveston County Daily News has featured a story about The Button Law Firm's clients, who filed a lawsuit against Park Vista Children's Academy in Keller, TX, following claims of mistreatment by a caregiver that resulted in their 23-month-old daughter's suffering. The lawsuit shares details about the disturbing mistreatment and inappropriate disciplinary actions toward toddlers at the daycare center.

Details of What Happened at Park Vista Children’s Academy

Featured prominently in the Galveston County Daily News, the lawsuit has brought to light shocking revelations of mistreatment and abuse at the Park Vista Children's Academy, raising significant concerns among parents and caregivers alike.

According to the lawsuit, the Napiers' daughter, along with other children, fell victim to abusive behavior that included pushing, shoving, and aggressive handling, such as being forcefully yanked by one arm. A thorough investigation conducted by the Texas Health and Human Services Child-Care Licensing Division found surveillance footage revealing a Park Vista Children's Academy caregiver subjecting the Napier's daughter to over 20 minutes of rough handling.

According to the article, the distressing footage captured the caregiver pulling the toddler's arm, pushing her into a classroom door for timeout, and even shoving her head against a wall when she attempted to move away. Subsequently, the toddler was forced to the ground, where she landed on her stomach, and despite attempts to crawl away, she was repeatedly pushed, spanked, and pushed on her face. Throughout the ordeal, the child remained visibly fearful and upset.

The Napiers, like other parents, entrusted the daycare center with the safety and well-being of their child, only to be confronted with shocking revelations of mistreatment.
