The family of a girl severely injured at a Muskogee daycare have sued the daycare center.

The suit alleges that, on Aug. 9, the six-year-old girl arrived at Champions Daycare in good health “with her face and skull intact.” While at the daycare, the girl suffered “severe and perhaps permanently disfiguring wounds to her face.” The wounds include “a fractured orbital bone (the bone surrounding the eye), damage to roots of her teeth, contusion to the inside of her mouth and a severe disfiguring gash to her upper lip.”

The suit further alleges that Champions neglected to provide adequate supervision and that once they became aware of her injuries, they didn’t call 911. Instead, the daycare’s director, Opal Jimerson, transported the girl in her personal vehicle to an urgent care center.

The suit goes on to name the Department of Human Services (DHS), stating that it supervises and regulates the daycare, finding numerous violations of state rules for daycares, yet taking no disciplinary action against the daycare. Some of the violations included deficient supervision, an open gate where children could walk out into the street, a kitchen knife easily accessible by poorly-supervised children, an open mop bucked accessible to the children and uncertified or under-certified workers.

The day after the girl was injured, DHS found that Champions lacked adequate supervision. DHS later erased that opinion without explanation.
