Daycare Child Abuse in Kent, WA
KENT — Parents who rely on an in-home day care in Kent are scrambling to make other arrangements.
The state shut down the ‘More Rainbows Childcare Home’ after police say the owner’s husband confessed to molesting a 4-year-old girl there.
Drew Garrett, 61, is now charged with first-degree child molestation.
Carol Williams lives right across the street.
“He has no right to touch a 4-year-old child at all,” Williams said.
“Any time you have somebody being accused of being a sexual predator, it can be pretty scary in a neighborhood full of kids, especially having two young kids myself,” neighbor Chuck Williams said.
Krista Foronda lives right next door and is close friends with the family.
“Our daughter has grown up with their daughter and she’s done sleepovers there. Their daughter has been over here. Something like this I’m completely blown away. I could never imagine him doing anything like that,” Foronda said.
PCVA is handling a similar case. The Olympia Early Learning Center was closed in 2011 after allegations from our clients that an OELC employee sexually molested children at the daycare center.
If your child has been sexually abused in a daycare, please contact an attorney and learn your rights.
