THE BRONX - A Bronx day care facility is now under investigation after a woman claims her 3-year-old son was sexually abused.

The Department of Health says Loyalty Daycare is being investigated after a mother claims a teacher sexually abused her son last week. She says her son told her he had been touched by a teacher at the school. 

She says she took her son to the hospital, where he repeated the story to officials. The child retold the same story to police.

Representatives from the Administration for Children's Services inspected the day care and implemented a safety plan.

The mother says that after the incident, she looked into the school on her own and found that the day care had six open violations -- including one alleging that the facility did not conduct background checks on its staff. She says these violations could have been warning signs for issues at the center.

The director at Loyalty Daycare told News 12 that he was cooperating with investigators. He says the accused teacher still works at the facility, but does not have any direct contact with children.
