I-Team: Daycare center video shows a worker abusing a child | My Baby My Star

LAS VEGAS (CLASS) – It’s a video obtained by the 8 News Now I team that a local daycare didn’t want you to see. To prevent us from showing you the video, an urgent application was made to the court today. This attempt failed.

Parents and guardians expect security and trust when a child is brought to a day-care center. But the video shows that trust is violated.

The I-Team’s Vanessa Murphy has this exclusive account of how a child was injured. Parents shared their story which you can only see here.

This video shows day care worker Elicia Miller abusing a 2 year old boy.

We don’t see what’s going on behind the furniture, but we do see the reaction of the other children.

“You know what pain looks like and sounds like, and he… he was in pain,” the child’s father said.

The child’s parents have asked that their family’s identity be protected.

“I’ve never heard him cry like that,” said the father.

Hours later, the parents learned that their son’s leg was broken. The family provided the I-Team with an X-ray.

“He screamed at a pitch that would break your heart,” the child’s mother said.

Now they are suing the crème de la crème daycare and Elicia Miller for negligence and abuse.

Attorney Adam Ellis of Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi LLP, who is representing the parents, said the daycare failed to properly address events from the start.

“If the investigation had gone differently and cameras had been checked and statements had been taken and taken more seriously and objectively, everyone would have realized this was a far more serious situation than they thought,” Ellis said.

He said the daycare was delaying in getting the child the immediate medical attention he needed. No paramedics were called. Instead, the father said he received a call to pick up his son.

“…said that he was basically pushed by another kid and wouldn’t stop crying and that we – I – had to pick him up,” the father said.

He said he received a document showing the teacher put his son next to the changing table after another child pushed him. He found his son with an ice pack, took him to an emergency room, and was ordered to take him to the emergency room.

“It wasn’t until the facility’s orthopedist said that in these situations it rarely occurs from an accident,” the mother said.

The parents said they were questioned by medical staff and then child protection services were called. Then the father says he contacted the daycare and demanded to see a video. He says when he came back he was only shown this 19 second clip.

“I couldn’t believe what I saw,” said the father. “The fact that she threw him aggressively and he just stood there. He didn’t do anything.”

He said it was also around this time that he learned that the kindergarten teacher had been fired and the Metro police were called.

This all unfolded on May 12, 2021.

On June 3, Miller was charged with child molestation. She agreed to a deal in which she will plead guilty to attempted child molestation and receive parole and do 50 hours of community service and an anger management course. She also pays damages.

“What they are proposing is offensive. I especially struggle to see the word attempted child abuse. That word just annoys me,” said the mother.

Miller is scheduled to be sentenced on March 14.

The 8 News Now I team have attempted to speak to Miller following a recent court appearance. She had no comment. But the father remembers what she said as he put his son in his car on May 12.

“She likes extensively, apologized. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” as she walked by as I invited him. And I…I just dismissed it, like, you know, like, I have to…I have to go. I have to take care of him,” said the father.

For their son, they say, it’s been a long road involving surgeries, casts, learning to walk again, not speaking for a while after the incident, PTSD and behavior changes.

They said the incident deeply affected their child and themselves.

“I don’t want that to happen to anyone else. I want…I want our family back. I want to feel like I’ve done a good job as a mom,” she said, crying. “For fighting for my son.”

The I-Team combed through state records and found the daycare was reprimanded because the employee used “improper discipline.” We also found more than 20 deficiencies listed since last April.

We contacted Creme de la Creme and a representative sent a statement saying the teacher was fired immediately. And also say that for 40 years, their top priority has been the safety of the children in their care.
