Toddler Suffers 2nd-Degree Burns on Her Feet at Daycare When Staff Leave Her on Scorching Playground


You recall the scorching hot summer days when you were young and how you couldn’t bear running across the hot sand to get to the water or shade? Imagine a 1-year-old boy with sensitive skin.

This young boy recently had a similar experience, though not at the beach but at a daycare center on a 100-degree day in Texas.

Some parents rely on daycare and have no choice but to entrust their most prized possessions to them. The daycare workers do not always live up to our expectations.

The staff and parents can get a wake-up call when an incident or injury takes place.

After her 16-month-older daughter was enrolled at the Wee Care Daycare Center in Brenham, Texas, Tiffanie Cedillo learned that hard way. She was informed by the center that her daughter has been injured and that she has to come and get her.



The mother had taken the liberty to record the discussion between her and the childcare worker.

“She said she was sent out on the playground with no shoes on because earlier that day she had diarrhea and it went down to her shoes,” Cedillo said through KBTX.

When questioned, the daycare worker answered, “Well it’s a little umm, it don’t look too good,” when she asked how bad the burning was on her feet, another staff member sent Cedillo the picture of her baby’s feet, covered in the blistered skin.

“I was heartbroken when I saw her foot because half of her foot was blistered,” Cedillo said.

When the mother came to pick her up, her daughter screamed in pain. The little girl was taken to the hospital and determined to have second-degree burns on her feet.

“It was almost a hundred degrees yesterday,” Cedillo said. “It’s just common sense you don’t send kids out barefoot on the playground. My child was neglected, and I would like for people to know that.” Since then the money has removed her child from the daycare and is bringing her to the office where she works. She also intends to take legal action against the daycare and staff, as reported by KBTX.

In an interview with Accuweather, Safety Inspector Tom Kalousek said: “Younger children, especially under 5 years old, can suffer second-or third-degree burns in a matter of moments.

The police investigated the incident later. “They take their shoes and socks off and use their hands and feet to get around and don’t realize the dangers.”
