Mums backing closed nursery
The?Precious Jewel?Day Nursery at Back Ivy, St Michael, where an eight-month-old baby sustained serious burns last Thursday, was closed yesterday.
Parents told the DAILY?NATION that when they turned up at the nursery, which is operated by Donna Sargeant, a sign on the door informed them that it was closed until further notice.
Yesterday this newspaper carried a story in which Jamar Jn-Marie complained that his son Jelani, received first degree burns to his left foot, penis and scrotum while being given a bath by the owner.
The DAILY?NATION could not ascertain if the nursery, which is unregistered, was ordered closed by officials at the Child Care Board (CCB) but it is understood that an officer visited the establishment yesterday. Calls to CCB director Joan Crawford were not returned.
