Many parents rely on daycare centers to look after their children while working. Without these daycare facilities many people would be left with little options. Unfortunately, not all daycare’s are reputable.
Parents often have to learn the hard way when they leave their children with someone who cannot be trusted. One mother was infuriated after her infant daughter came home with almost a dozen bite marks on her face. It appears a child at the daycare center bit her daughters face repeatedly.
Tracy Blinov is speaking out after her daughter was severely injured at a daycare center she went to. She received a call from the center informing her that her daughter had been bitten by another toddler, and she needed to come pick her up.
However, Blinov was shocked the following day when she woke up and saw that her daughter was covered in horrific bruises. Once she confronted the daycare workers, they informed her the teacher who was looking after them had stepped out of the room only to find the toddler biting the seven-month-old once she returned.
The owner of the daycare center says she reviewed surveillance footage and saw what happened. It appears the center doesn’t have enough staff, and employees are just one person per ten children.
There were a total of 14 children that day, and the other employee had been on her phone supposedly clocking in via an app when the incident happened.
D “At that moment she wasn’t, her eyes weren’t on them but she went over as soon as she heard the baby cry. I think she did her job, she didn’t ignore the cry she went over so she did the best that she could,” said the owner.
The child who had bitten the infant was just been admitted into the daycare center, where the employees were unaware of the child’s history of biting and had previously been kicked a daycare center for the same reason.
However, Blinov thinks that the daycare center should be responsible for what happened to her daughter, and police are currently investigating.
UFortunately, Blinov says her daughter is recovering from the incident, and took to Facebook to post an update. “She’s in much better spirits today. I’m happy to say the bruising and swelling is coming down a little, it’s amazing how resilient babies are. So blown away by the support from everybody,” she wrote.
RThe owner of the daycare center says there are no regulations in place by the state about how many adults are required to be employed for each amount of child. However, Blinov says this is no reason why they shouldn’t be able to hire anyone else.
P“The State sets ratios for regular daycare facilities for a reason, so why are you not holding yourself to the same standards? Just because you don’t have to?” Blinov explains.
A petition was started requesting that the daycare center where this happened be permanently closed.
Evan Petroff, started it since the daycare center has a history of being understaffed. The petition also claims that nearly two minutes passed before the employee came back into the room after hearing the baby cry.
D”We spoke with the owner of busy hands today as well as reviewed video footage of what happened and hear what staff wrote in their incident reports. The footage showed the 2-year-old toddler appeared to have attacked Eliana biting her for about 1min 29sec before staff intervened. There is no audio but you can see Eliana’s legs kicking and flailing in obvious distress,” reads part of the petition.
The petition hopes to shut down the daycare center so that no other child gets hurt. Other parents have given testimonies regarding the daycare center, claiming they too, have picked up their children and noticed bruises and scratches on them, but weren’t given any explanation in relation to them.
B “I have picked up my child from busy hands on several accounts with bruises scratches etc with no answers as to why. After seeing this, never again will I give them my business. It’s obviously about the money and not the well being of the children and they should be shut down,” said a woman named Emily Burton.
NAnother woman says “my friends son also had bruises all over his stomach from busy hands and staff had no explanation.” The petition also mentions how the Facebook page of the daycare center has no reviews section and has a history of neglect and child endangerment.
The investigation is still ongoing, thankfully Blinov says her daughter is recovering.Apparently the toddler who was responsible for biting was also kicked out of the daycare center.
