I worked at Creative Beginnings a little over a year and my daughter also attended the pre-school before I began working there. If I knew what I found out before I began working there I would have never took my daughter to that school. While working there I witness force feedings, children being left in soiled clothes as punishment for their accident and one of my students being yanked out of my hands twisted around and thrown up against a wall. I also witnessed the director's mother smack a child who had down syndrome. Each incident was reported to the front office. Each time it was met with just a slap on the hand and the workers were returned back to work with children again. I know now that I was young and ignorant and should have followed my training by calling Child Protective Services right away instead of leaving it up to the director to do her job. Instead I put in my two weeks notice and decided I would contact parents of the day care on my own. I took matters into my own hands and suffered greatly from it. Small town justice railroaded me. It still doesn't change what I witnessed and I will never discontinue speaking the truth.
