Recent Omaha daycare abuse incident may prompt state officials to change the legislature

OMAHA, Nebraska – Following reports of abuse at a network of metropolitan daycares, the Nebraska Legislature is attempting to determine if policy changes are necessary.

In December of 2020 and January of 2021, the owner and an employee of Rosewood Academy were charged with child abuse.

Three months after the incident, the parents discovered that their children had been mistreated.

The Nebraska Legislature resolved to examine the requirements for notifying guardians in greater detail.

A committee heard testimony from some of the parents whose children were injured at Rosewood on Friday afternoon.

Ashlynn Turner, a parent, stated, “If even one of these submitted claims had been reported to all of the parents at the facility, as this new statute suggests, so many of these children would not have suffered.” It cannot be overstated how important it is to give parents the ability to make informed decisions about their children and those who care for them.

When the committee completes its investigation, it will prepare a report for the legislature.
