The owner of the Superkids Early Learning Center, Debra Brooks McDaniel, 58 if Rome, was arrested on Monday after she allegedly left a 5-year-old special needs child in the bus unattended for an :extended period of time”.
McDaniel is charged with felony second-degree cruelty to children and misdemeanor reckless conduct.
According to reports a three year-old child was found walking near the street on Westover Drive Friday morning around 10AM.
Officials told CVN that the child fell asleep in the bus of a daycare and the driver failed to realize they did not get off at the school. The driver of the van then proceeded to drive to Westover Drive and leave the child alone in the van.
Reports continued to say that the child then proceeded to get out of the vehicle, which was registered to Super Kids, and was found by public works employees who were working in the area.
A call has been placed to Super Kids for comment.
