Texas 3-year-old kicked out of daycare for saying a curse word
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (WOAI) -- 3-year-old Arianna is like most little girls she loves to play and everyday is a new adventure. Her mom, Cassandra Wright, says she loved going to daycare at the Jubilee Child Development Center, but now she's banned from the building.
"I'm still a little bit upset, but most of all was hurt, I was devastated really hurt," said Wright.
Wright says her daughter was expelled for saying a curse word. "Which was the 'S' word. I don't condone her saying it but for that to be a faith based daycare I would think that they would re enforce and let her know that's not a word to say," she said.
Wright told News 4 San Antonio she doesn't know where her daughter heard the curse word, and she doesn't even know what it means.
"I asked her what word did you say, and she told me animal," added Wright.
The director of the Jubilee Child Development Center Alissa Blankenship says there's a zero-tolerance when it comes to saying a curse word.
When we asked if expelling the 3-year-old was going to far, Blankenship responded by saying, "Well as a private center and also a parent myself you know there's decisions and choices that have to make."
Blankenship says there's a policy in place that if it's not in the best interest to have a child at the center any longer they can dismiss them. She adds since Arianna laughed after saying the curse word she might say it again.
"I didn't think that this would be an isolated incident either."
Wright says she wants the daycare's policy changed. Turns out Arianna is not the first student to get expelled from the child care center.
Blankenship says several months ago another student was expelled for saying a curse word.
