Parents put their children in daycare to be looked after and cared for by loving, attentive workers, not to expose them to people with bad intentions. Shannon Galofaro thought she was doing the best thing for her 2-year-old daughter Makala by putting her in daycare, but she recently learned she was wrong.
A 21-year-old teacher took a video of Makala’s naked butt during nap time and shared it with her followers on Snapchat.
“My daughter sleeps with her butt in the air, kind of, y’know, like the baby position,” Shannon explained. “Her underwear was around her ankles, and her dress was to her midriff, and this woman wrote, ‘This girl’s ready for a three-day weekend,’ and put an emoji over her face.”
When school staff found out about the young teacher’s actions, they didn’t tell Shannon. Instead, she didn’t hear anything about it until a week later. They told Shannon that the teacher had been fired and the video had been deleted from her phone. According to Shannon, the school said they were doing “their own investigation” before informing her or the police.
Shannon was outraged. Not only had the teacher broken the law, but the daycare had also tried to cover it up. Makala is now in therapy twice a week, and Shannon has filed a lawsuit against the company that owns the daycare.
