A California mother is speaking out after she says her mildly autistic son came home from daycare covered in bruises.

The mom, Breonna Wills, told KTVU that the injuries occurred when her 1-year-old son was taken on a field trip from Prime Kingdom Kiddos Daycare in Richmond to nearby Oakland.

Wills said she didn’t give permission for her son, Navy, to be taken on the trip, which the daycare denies.

She didn’t notice her son injuries until she picked him up and brought him home. The mom explained:

“I got out of the car, I took Navy upstairs [where there’s] more lighting and that’s when I noticed all the bruising all over his face. He has a scratch under his chin. Pinch marks in his ear. Dried blood in his ear.”

The horrified mom took her son to the hospital, where doctors informed her that he possibly “fractures and broken bones in both his face and in one of his legs,” she wrote on Facebook.

Wills decided to share photos of Navy’s injuries on social media, along with a warning not to take children to the daycare.

Wills wrote, in part:

It hurts my heart to know people who you entrust with your children can be the very people who neglect, hurt and abuse them.

The daycare told the mom that Navy caused the injuries by hitting himself in the face with a doll. But Wills’ attorney, Te’Reisha Grave, said that’s not likely.

She told WTVU:

“The doll that they are saying he hit himself with, it’s like a rag doll, so it’s like a soft doll. Check out where you’re putting your kids. Make sure the daycare has cameras and make sure you know all the staff.”

Prime Kingdom Kiddos Daycare is licensed and operators maintain they had permission to take Navy off the premises. They now intend to sue Wills for slander.

The child’s injuries were reported to Child Protective Services and police.

    CALL THE POLICE AND TRY TO GET THIS DAY CARE CLOSED UP. GET ON FACEBOOK AND TELL THE NAME OF THE DAY ARE ND THE OWNERS. THEY CAN OPEN UP UNDER A NEW DAY CRE NAME. STOP THEM FROM BEATING ANOTHER CHILD.

    This is heartbreaking. The mom did the right thing. I think it should be made a mandatory law that all daycare centers or providers have cameras. This is terrible. This is defenseless baby. Prayers for a speedy recovery for Navy. It’s hard enough being a single mom and paying for daycare but also trusting these people with our children. This is AWFUL. Call the police. Press charges.

    That’s a horrible situation and I feel for the family. But I found something to be kind of odd. If he is only 1 year old, how can he be diagnosed with autism?

      a child can be diagnosed autistic at 1 if he / she was tested rite away they show signs at a young age my son who is 5 was legally written down on paper diagnosed ASD non verbal at 1 and then had him retested at 3 and he is and always will be autistic. so there is nothing odd about that. that being said this is a very sad situation and uncalled for the daycare to now try turning the attention off of them and pursue a lawsuit against the mother when they were the ones that did some unspeakable things to that child, she didnt have to drag their name thru the dirt they destroyed their reputation all on their own, this is why i will NEVER trust anyone with my child and to bring up that her and the child father isn’t together has nothing to do with the situation they are just trying to take all attention off of them…. they need to go to jail.

    If the workers hurt him, they deserve jail time. However, i have seen many autistic children when in an aggravated state bite themselves, pinch themselves, slam their heads against the floor all repeatedly. No during those instances we would get the administration and notify parents immediately of the situation. So,…. Communication was not done properly and or the day care is abusive.

    How was bruising like that not noticed until that night?

    • Donovan Daniels 1 year ago

      Simple. They daycare provides pick ups and drop offs. The mother said it was 7 pm when he brought her son home and it was also raining (and dark) . Make sense?
