After picking up her 2-year-old daughter from a Washington state daycare center, a mother noticed what she believed to be markings indicating her child’s eyebrows were waxed.
Alyssa Salgado, 19, dropped off her daughter at the daycare center, operated by the Boys & Girls Club of Benton and Franklin Counties, on Thursday. Salgado attended classes while her daughter was left in the care of the center, reported the Tri-City Herald.
When she picked up her daughter, she noticed a red patch of skin between the child’s eyebrows and hair appeared to be missing.
"Then I go pick up my daughter yesterday and saw a red mark in between her eye brows I think it's a scratch but as soon as a get home I get a closer look these WOMEN decided to WAX MY DAUGHTERS uni brow. I immediately started to contact the director of the day care in many texts she tried to come up with multiple excuses then this morning I take my daughter in person to the director. She laughs in my face telling me a bunch of lies and I do get upset!!!" Salgado wrote.
Glenda Maria Cruz, another student who uses the daycare center, also posted on Facebook that her son looked like he had his eyebrows waxed at the facility on the same day.
"The Boys and Girls Club takes these allegations seriously and will work to support the investigation process,” the nonprofit said in a statement released Monday.
The organization said it is “committed to operating safe and supportive programs,” and “has been recognized for providing quality programs serving youth of all ages.”
