Woman says daughter injured at daycare center

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A Memphis woman says she may sue a local daycare center after her daughter came home with a broken collarbone.

Livia Hill is upset because it was hours before anyone at Nanna's Rocking Rhyme Daycare realized something was wrong.

Hill went to pick up her 2-year-old daughter, Kahlia, at the daycare on James Road, about 5 p.m. on Nov. 13. Her children have attended this daycare without incident for several years, but on this day, Hill says she heard her daughter crying.

"As I go to the back, they're fumbling with her arm, and she hollering hysterically, shaking like pain right here," she said.

Hill immediately asked the daycare owner what happened, Hill recalled.

"'An accident happened on the field trip today,' and I'm, like, why didn't I get a phone call? Why y'all let her suffer like this in pain?," Hill questioned.

She was told the accident happened during a field trip, away from the daycare shortly after noon, but it was five hours later when she was scheduled to pick up her daughter, Hill said.

"I rushed my daughter to Le Bonheur, where they told me she had a broken collarbone."

There is a police report alleging the accidental injury, but so far, Memphis police have not taken any action against the daycare.

"I don't know if she fell off a see-saw or not," Hill said. "They didn't do no accident report. They would normally call me when anything happens, but they didn't do this at all," she said.

FOX13 News called and asked to speak with the owner of Nanna's Rocking Rhyme, but the person on the phone hung up on us.

FOX13 News even knocked on the daycare's door. No one answered, yet there were four cars in the parking lot.

It is unclear if Hill will seek monetary damages against the daycare, but there is one thing she say she wants for her daughter.

"I really want an apology, and I want everybody to know that daycares out here, you are supposed to call parents and let them know anything," she said. "That's the most important thing about trust, trusting the daycare."

According to the Tennessee Department of Human Services, Nanna's Rocking Rhyme center earns three of a possible three star rating.
