Mom Leaves 4-Year-Old At Daycare, Returns To Find Him In Locked Building All By Himself
A Florida mother was shocked when she picked her son up at daycare and found him locked inside the vacant facility all by himself.
The Orange County woman says she overslept and forgot to pick her 4-year-old son up from after hours daycare at Kids R Kids Learning Center. But instead of waiting for her to arrive, she found her son locked inside by himself.
Parents are supposed to pick up their kids from 10:30 to 11 p.m. from the “Parents' Night Out” event, but the mother did not arrive until 1:30 a.m.
She called the fire department to gain access to the dark building and found her son asleep inside.
There was a miscommunication between teachers at the Waterford Lakes facility during the locking up process, the daycare owner, Jose Diaz, told WFTV.
He says the two workers have since been fired.
The boy was found uninjured and no charges were filed.
The Parents’ Night Out event has been suspended until the staff receives more training.
