Concerned Mother Jan 05, 2014

I wanted to advise, Owner Saleha Jaffery was informed of a sexual assault on 1/3/2014 that took place in her daycare facility located at 9404 W Sam Houston Parkway S Houston, TX 77099. Saleha became defensive, and held a nonchalant attitude. She did not allow me to tell my full story, cut me off each time I spoke of the details my child describe to me. I remained calm and professional. Saleha advised me this is not true, this have never happened in her daycare. My child is making up stories, and that I am lying because my story changed. However, my story never changed. I could not even get out a full sentence, and therefore I was lying because this molestation took place at the Daycare facility, as well on the bus ride home. Saleha also put 1 of the accused children in the room with me, and told me to talk to him. I advised her I would not talk to the child accused, his parent is not even here. His Mother was never contacted on 1\3\14, they also were yelling at me in front of the other children in the daycare. I was given 120.00 back like that was the best departing gift for a Mother whose child was molested. They did not show empathy, and never said how is your child doing . They did not have the Mothers in attendance for both children accused. I Left the facility, and contacted the police while sitting in the parking lot. The Officer came out, I advised him of everything. We went in, and everything changed. They said I told them the exact day it happened, and the child accused was not there. Told the Officer, I was lying and changing dates when it happened. Like I told the Officer, I do not know the exact day, but it took place. The Officer told them, No she didn't say an exact date. They just said I was making up stories. My child is lying. In addition. I was informed by another daycare of this website- www.dfps.state.tx.us - This website provides the Compliance History of every daycare in Texas. They have 3 Locations- License#1377746 &1093486 &1136206. All of these locations have major violations. As recent as 11/2013, some violations have not been resolved. The Owner told the Officer I was lying about these violations, I showed the Officer the website and their violations from the Inspectors. He saw the violations on my daughter's tablet! As a Mother I thought I did my research. I thought I had picked the right daycare. I did not, and I feel so guilty of that. I took her there everyday. I also talk to my child everyday, and she told me she didnt tell me because while the 2 kids molested her, they threatened her with losing her friends in the class. They used and played on my child being sweet and innocent. I wrote this for awareness to other parents, so that you know my situation was not rectified by the Owner Saleha Jaffery. The Cop also was shocked that Saleha left shortly after I was told rudely to leave. She did not care, left to handle her daily errands. I then called Department of Family Protective Services, and filed a Child Abuse and Neglect claim against the establishment, In addition a report will be sent to CPS , and the Licensing Department for the Facility. I will be reaching out to our Local Tv Stations. I do not want another parent to go through what I did. In addition, Ms. Z, she is th e Director of the Location at 9404. She told me the Owner was a bitch, and she is hardly at the daycare, also they had to close 1 of the locations because the parents pulled their children from the daycare. Ms. Z also said she could give me a list of parents who can tell me the bad encounters with the Owner. This was told to me now, but why now. How about telling me that before I enrolled my child. However, once Ms. Z spoke with the Owner, her job, she said I was lying and she didn't believe me. I was making up stories, and guess what she never said those things about the Owner. Well they do not value Integrity, and I will not stop here. I must fight for my child, and every child that has been molested/abused. This facility Kid's Haven did not even professionally handle my situation. Please pass this along! My 4 year old is not like the average 4 year old. She is very smart, speaks well, understands well. This daycare thought my daughter wasn't going to talk.

My son has been in the baby room here for several weeks now and I cannot say how sweet and kind the ladies in his room are. This is the first time my son has been in daycare and he is 11 months old, so I was really concerned with how this would work for him. It's been a very good fit. The other babies in the room with him are always happy and well tended. Even my son, who is going through a shy phase right now, is always playing happily when I arrive. I am really pleased with the staff and experience.

I have three children (2 yr old twins & 4 yr old) at Kids Haven, it has been the best experience for my children and myself. Always a clean daycare, smells fresh and safety is top priority! This is the most affordable daycare in town! I would recommend this daycare to anyone that is requiring the best environment for their children.‎
