A Spartanburg, South Carolina woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison over six counts of committing or attempting to commit lewd acts on children under the age of 16. The woman worked at a daycare center in 2010 and, according to reporting in several sources, she abused the children in the bathroom. Some of the facets of this case should be telling to anybody who has reason to suspect that daycare abuse is going on.
Out of the Way Places
Many abusers will make an effort to isolate children so that they can abuse them. This simply provides the abuser with opportunity. Once the abuser has the child isolated from other children and from any supervision by the staff, they're free to conduct their abuse. One of the things you want to look for in a good daycare facility is an environment where it is very difficult to isolate children from one another or from the rest of the staff.
Sadly, a great deal of daycare abuse is sexual in nature. Abusers will sometimes shame and sometimes intimidate children into not saying anything about the abuse. When they are able to isolate children to keep them intimidated, it's even easier for an abuser to keep on with what they are doing.
