When a parent has to put their child in daycare so that they can go to work, they search high and low for the daycare center that will provide the best care for their child. They read reviews and ask others what they think about the facility before entrusting the staff with their most prized possession: their child.

There are times when everything goes according to plan, and this is the case when there are wonderful teachers and caregivers who love the children they are entrusted with as if they were their own, who are supportive of both the children and their families, and who simply try their best to keep the children happy and safe for as long as they are with them during the day. Sometimes things work out perfectly.

Unfortuitously, there are situations in which those responsible for the care of children do not truly concentrate on the children, but rather go about their business while the children are left alone, or even worse, ab’use them.

According to the National Child Abu’ se and Neglect Data System, there were more than 3.5 million reports from CPS agencies in 2013, which implicated more than 6.4 million children. This number of children was involved in these reports alone. The majority of the allegations made in the reports were neglect, followed by allegations of physical hurt, sexual hurt, emotional hurt, and medical neglect.

According to the data on child hurt, both boys and girls have an equal chance of being victims of hurt. However, it was shown that children aged 0 to 3 years old are the most susceptible group of children to experience hurt.

Unfortunately, a child from Arizona recently had a traumatic incident at the daycare, and her mother was surprised to find out what had happened to her daughter when she found out what had occurred.

Alice Martin used to bring her daughter, who was 15 months old at the time, to the Creative Beginnings daycare in Tucson, Arizona, around a year ago. They had decided to go with that particular center because it was located near to their place of employment, it had received accreditation, and it was located close to the University of Arizona, which Alice was attending at the time.

On the other hand, things did not go as planned for them at all. When Alice picked up her daughter from daycare one day, she observed that her daughter was more irritable than she had been in the past. She brought her home and tried to behave normally, despite the fact that the daycare workers had not said anything that would have disturbed the child. The time till the ba th.

When Alice pulled off her daughter’s onesie in order to give her a ba th, she found that the child’s back and arms were covered with red scars, which she first was unable to determine the cause of.

When I initially saw them, my first thought was, ‘Are those actually bite marks?’ After that, my brain just sort of stopped thinking, and I began weeping,” Alice Martin said in an interview with KOLD News 13. It’s difficult to count them all since there are more than 25. 25 was the bare minimum that was agreed upon between the police officer and myself.

The mother couldn’t believe that the staff had watched her little daughter being mistreated and didn’t do anything to stop it, or that they just disregarded her daughter’s calls for help.

She couldn’t believe that they just ignored her. She had no choice but to conclude that they had abandoned the children, and it was at that time when the event took place; this realization made the lady even more irate.

“The fact that nobody acted in however many minutes, maybe they were left alone, maybe they simply ignored the screams, I don’t know. The fact that nobody did anything is concerning. However, it takes some time to do something like that bite, and I’m sure that my daughter would have been extremely angry about it,” Martin remarked.

Martin had every intention of taking the daycare to court, but she was well aware that the case would come down to her word against theirs. Martin believed that there was a low likelihood that the Arizona Department of Health Services would take any action in the future as a result of the event even though it had been many months after it had occurred.

It breaks my heart to think that the same individuals who are responsible for taking care of our children may often treat them with such disdain and apathy at times. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that anything similar to this won’t occur again.
