is a teacher there by the name of Patricia Rice Foster who I walked in on. She hit two children on the head and grabbed and squeezed three other kids by their heads and pushed them. My son had been starting to act like someone had been hitting him on the head which was what alerted me. I told the lady at the front about my concerns. She acted like she actually cared. The next day was when I decided to walk in quietly. Patricia did not know I was standing at the doorway when she was hitting, grabbing, and pushing the children. When she saw me standing there watching she was about to hit another child but stopped centimeters from the childs head. I was sick to my stomach and very upset at that point . Another teacher was in the same room which meant Patricia was obviously comfortable doing this and felt comfortable doing it in front of her. I grabbed my baby and went and told the same lady at the front. I wrote a report about what happened and asked them if the would tell the parents what happened. She assured me she would and do an investigation. At that time I demanded that my son be immediately removed from that room and stay with miss Gi Gi or another teacher I trusted, and that by no means would Patricia go near my child. The daycare never said anything to the other parents so I said something and asked if they were told. The parents told me they were not. Apparently after that the same lady at the front covered up the incident and told the parents that I caused problems. The parents then asked the daycare that I not talk to them. Really?!!! The daycare then installed cameras that don't record by the way. I know because I called the district manager and requested to view them on my days off. She told me they do not record. To put the cherry on the top. Patricia was moved to the baby's who could not talk. Patricia also did not change my sons diapers I have several pictures of after picking my child up where his bottom was raw. He cried when I bathed him. I would even sign consent forms to make sure diaper rash cream was applied.
On my lunches and breaks I would call to make sure he was changed. I think me doing this may have triggered Patricia to abuse my child. This incident changed my life forever. My son was supposed to be protected. Not abused by the daycare. They also covered everything up completely. DHR has rated this daycare as one of the best places, which had me terrified of putting him somewhere else. I did. The incident that topped it off is after I dropped my son off after lunch one day. I stayed and watched in the backroom by the glass doors the teacher grabbed a little boy by his face and shook him. He wouldn't lay down and take a nap. I immediately went to the front and grabbed the same lady whos name I cant remember for the life of me. She was a big top heave black lady who had just had a baby girl. She immediately started covering up and said she was sure that did not happen and she would talk to the little boy. She didn't ask for a name or what he looked like. She started to walk away and I said no I would not leave until they had a safe teacher to leave my son with especially after they covered up the last incident so well. I also said this was it. I had had it with the daycare. Leaving my child there had me worried sick. I legitimately felt physically ill every day I had to leave him. I told her if something was not done immediately I was going to call the police and report her for failure to report abuse to DHR since she was a mandated reporter and I would testify against her for how she covered up my son being abused by Patricia. They fired the lady who grabbed and shook the child. To this day even mentioning this daycare makes me feel physically ill. My sons Dr reported the school to Dhr but told me DHR never contacted them back, Nor did they talk to me.
I posted this four days ago.
The lady who did all the covering up and lying; I do believe her name is Shante if I remember correctly. She will lie to your face
