The article brings attention to the experiences of Karina Lebato and her son, shedding light on their legal battle against Children’s Courtyard Daycare Center in New Braunfels.

More Details About the Incident That Happened at This Central Texas Daycare

The article shares that Karina Lebato, the child’s mother, has filed a lawsuit against the daycare center, claiming negligence that resulted in her 3-year-old son suffering a febrile seizure in April 2022. MySA reports that daycare staff failed to recognize and appropriately respond to the child's illness, leading to a high fever and subsequent seizure. Karina recounts the distressing moments of discovering her son’s condition, rushing him to urgent care, and witnessing him seize on the way.

The lawsuit also references a prior incident in June 2020, where the child was reportedly left unattended on a playground until other parents intervened. These incidents have fueled Karina’s determination to seek justice and prevent similar occurrences from happening to other children in the future.

The Role of The Button Law Firm in Holding the Daycare Responsible for Negligence

MySA’s coverage prominently features The Button Law Firm and founder, Russell Button, who is representing Karina Lebato in this legal battle. In the article, Button highlights the preventable nature of these incidents and the importance of holding daycare centers accountable for the safety of children under their care.\

“These two incidents were completely preventable,” Button stated. “It’s easy to see that they never should have happened, and it truly affected this family and this child’s life. What they want is to make it right, hold them accountable for what happened to their son, and also bring awareness to this issue for all parents. So hopefully this doesn’t happen to a child in the future.”

Highlighting the Need for Accountability

The article reveals that Children’s Courtyard Daycare Center has a history of violations, with 21 citations from the Texas Health and Human Services Child-Care Licensing division between December 2020 and December 2023. These citations include failures to complete required training and properly supervise children. Despite these violations, the daycare has yet to offer an apology or acknowledgment to the Lebato family, raising concerns about accountability.

Button further emphasized the family’s frustration, noting, “As far as has the daycare reached out to make it right and to own up to what they did, no, because the family would have never reached out to us… This isn’t one incident, and this isn’t the first time they have been cited by the state; they’ve been cited numerous times.”
