What Happened at This Midland, Texas Daycare?

This West Texas mom discovered that while her three-year-old son was at daycare, he was left in the daycare’s kitchen pantry with the lights off. Additionally, and shockingly, the child’s caregivers sprayed him with toxic disinfectant and forced him to sit next to a trash can.

Upon learning about these incidents, the daycare waited to notify the child’s mother and the state of Texas, even though these steps are legally required by the state.

After the mother found out about what happened to her son, she reported it to the daycare licensing division in the State of Texas. Upon investigating, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission found that the mistreatment this young child suffered was not uncommon and that many of the caregivers at Greenwood Baptist Children’s Learning Center were engaging in these types of prohibited punishments and discipline methods.

In fact, none of the caregivers who witnessed this abuse spoke out against it until one caregiver witnessed her own child being restrained with a seat belt as a form of punishment.
