Union-Bulletin Feature of Button Law Firm ClientTEXAS — A Walla Walla publication, The Union-Bulletin, has featured the story of a Button Law Firm client who is suing an Allen daycare for negligence after her 2-year-old son wandered from the center and was found near a busy, six-lane road.

Union-Bulletin Spotlights Safari Kid Allen Daycare Negligence

According to the article, the incident, which occurred in March 2023, involved the toddler wandering out of Safari Kid daycare and heading toward McDermott Drive, which is a busy road filled with businesses like banks, drugstores, and gas stations and has a speed limit of 45 mph.

An employee from a neighboring establishment, a Kwik Kar Auto Shop, intercepted the toddler, preventing a potential tragedy. The employee noticed the child wandering alone in the Kwik Kar parking lot.

That’s when he took the child to a nearby daycare – the staff at that daycare didn’t know who the toddler was. That’s when the employee called the police. Police worked to identify the child by calling childcare centers in the surrounding area. When they talked to Safari Kid Allen, the director claimed that they weren’t missing any kids – it wasn’t until after the officer requested the director to do a headcount that they realized the child was missing.

The director and daycare staff weren’t able to explain how the child went missing. Subsequent investigations revealed lapses in Safari Kid's security measures, including an inadequately secured gate in the outdoor playground.
