What the hell is wrong with these “daycare centers”????
A 2-year-old girl died Monday afternoon after being left in a van outside a Clayton County daycare center for at least two hours, police said.
Family members identified the child as Jasmine Green.
“I just don’t understand how they could do that to my baby,” April McAlister, Jasmine’s mother, told Channel 2 Action News. “They just kept saying she fell asleep between the seats and they didn’t realize she was gone.”
The toddler was left in the van after a field trip to Chuck E. Cheese, said Lt. Tina Daniel of the Clayton County police. The child went on the field trip, but was left alone in the van while staff and other children returned inside the daycare center.
The child was transported to Southern Regional Medical Center, but did not survive, Daniel said.
Temperatures reached the middle 90s Monday.
The daycare center is in the 1600 block of Thrasher Court near Jonesboro, Officer John Schneller with Clayton County police said.
That address is the location of Marlo’s Magnificent Early Learning Center, according to Bright from the Start, the state agency which monitors childcare centers. The website lists Marlo Fallings as the center’s administrator.
We better hear about some neglect charges or something being brought up against this place.
