HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A concerned mother reached out to 12 On Your Side after she says her daughter was dropped off at the wrong school Wednesday morning.
Jada Morrison says her 3-year-old's normal trip to Woodville Day Nursery ended at Woodville Elementary School instead.
"She knows her first and last name, so I guess they figured she was three years old, and she was in the head start program," explained Morrison. "And they called the Head Start Program, and the Head Start Program, they called me."
Morrison says she was at work when she got a call from Richmond Public Schools. Her father then went and picked her daughter up.
"So you're just going to drop her off anywhere?" asked Morrison. "I guess you see Woodville, and you think 'this must be it,' but I literally said it is the church, not the school."
Morrison says she wrote down the correct name and address for Heaven Sent Child Care in Henrico. She credits her young daughter for knowing important personal information, like her first and last name, which helped resolved the situation.
NBC 12 reached out to Heaven Sent, who sent this statement:
"Even if the address was wrong, which I know it wasn't, you still didn't walk her in to make sure she was fine," said Morrison.
The daycare says walking children into schools during morning drop off is not a part of their protocol, and that, "the driver ensured the child was walked into the school by school security."
Morrison sends her 10-month-old to Heaven Sent Child Care as well. She says the employees are good with him, and he seems to be happy there. She is calling the incident a hard lesson learned for everyone involved.
"I forgive the person, but you have to be very careful," said Morrison.
