We enrolled my 2 & 1/2 year old niece in Centenary Day Care center Feb Through April of 2010. My neice started exhibiting aggressive behavior for two to three weeks leading up to this incident . She would come up to us and pinch us in the chest and wave her finger saying ""shut up""! April 29Th. she came home, and while my sister was fixing to give her a bath, she noted a pinch mark on her right chest. When asked who did this to her, she said that Miss. Jessica did that and pinched herself. She also pulled her own hair and her ear as if to continue to show us what else she did to her. I took pictures. We confronted Miss. Jessica who claimed that she noticed the same mark when she came to class that morning. A complete lie of course, she had no reason to remove her T-shirt in the morning coming to class! Even if she needed a diaper change, why would she remove her T-shirt! Not to mention the look on her face, she looked guilty rather than concerned.\r
This issue was brought before the day care supervisor Miss. Marissa Corra and explained in detail to the director Dr. King. Initially they stated that the church has no tolerance for physical punishment and that they will investigate. May be to absorb our anger! I even made the photos available to them. Unfortunately, they refused to dismiss Miss. Jessica. To this day, this cruel woman continues to endanger children in Centenary Day Care Center.\r
The administration is 100% complaisant in my view. Their talk about not tolerating physical punishment, was just that, talk. \r
We had to withdraw our niece from the day care. My sister lost her job in these tough times.\r
Miss Jessica still has a job...
