Daycare owner, Shannon Veradt, of Taunton, Massachusetts, was allegedly found passed out on the second floor of her home while the children she was supposed to be caring for were unattended downstairs. Her own mother had called the police because she believed her daughter was drunk and she was worried about the children. Ms. Veradt admitted that she had been drinking, saying she was stressed from her marriage. This day care owner showed “poor judgment” but is being allowed to reopen the daycare center.
It seems shocking that this woman, who allegedly has a serious problem with alcohol, will be allowed to reopen her daycare center and take care of children. At least one parent was quoted as saying that she will not be returning her child to Ms. Veradt’s care. This just highlights how important it is for parents to thoroughly check out child care centers and child caretakers before entrusting their children to a relative stranger.
