Child Abuse - Screening of Daycare Providers

by Daycare David
(Location Undisclosed)

When i was younger, and just started daycare, my parents liked the provider. It turns out she was sexually abusing me. My parents found this out because whenever they left the room i would cry. This happened a while after i started daycare. they took me to therapy and the therapist said that i had all the signs of being sexually abused. That daycare was investigated and it turns out the daycare provider was a registered sex offender.

Your story clearly shows why it is so important that screening, including police checks, are so important for anyone who works with or around children, and that parents needs to ensure that such checks are up to date. It is also important that parents do their due diligence when investigating child care for their children. I do hope you've gotten the help you need for what you endured. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
