ONTARIO COUNTY, N.Y. – Lauren Kuhn, 21, of Canandaigua was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

An investigation revealed that on March 17, 2023, while working at a daycare in the Town of Farmington, she caused an injury to a child in her care. The child was four months old at the time and the child is fine now.

She was issued an appearance ticket and will answer the charge at a later date in the Town of Farmington Court.

Here is a statement from Care-a-lot Child Care:

Safety is our greatest priority. We are deeply committed to providing high-quality childcare to our families.

In March, an isolated incident occurred at one of our centers in Farmington. After being alerted, we immediately followed our standard procedures, filed a report with CPS, New York State, and terminated the employee for cause.

Our staff are required to attend a minimum of 15 hours of training per year, and engage in monthly, company-wide safety training at each of our local centers. We regret that this incident occurred and are committed to continuous improvement to ensure the safety of each and every child in our care.

We will, of course, cooperate fully with law enforcement as its investigation moves forward.
