I already planned to report this to the State on Monday. You are correct that there are no eyewitnesses of what happened to my baby. However 2 teachers admitted to have noticed the injury but none followed protocol. they were supposed to make an incident report and do first aid and inform the Director, so the Director could have called me. The injury I noticed while still on the daycare's property. I went back inside and asked for an explanation.
No one knows what happened all they know is that something happened.
My husband had to stay home and miss work to stay home with the baby.
The district manager called me and said they are investigating for the next week. I told them I am not sending my child back to a teacher that has been negligent. They told me they do not have enough staff to reorganize so, basically the teacher is still in that infant room.
This is a large chain daycare named KINDERCARE, I just do not understand why they won't at least put the teacher on non-active while investigating.
They offered to pay for the urgent care bill and to take my child to another kindercare down the street for a couple of day's free of charge.
To me that is no option, because it is too much change for my baby in a short period, besides I want to make sure this won't happen to another child as well. It is not solved by just moving my child to another location.
I would like to know who to contact to start a lawsuit.
Thank you for your time.
