Jessica Thomas held her son Xavien, 4, a little closer on Thursday after an incident that happened this week at the MKS Learning Center in Decatur.
"I get a call from the paramedics telling me that my son had a seizure at the school. They're asking me immediately, does he have seizures? What is his medical history with seizures? How long has he had them?" Thomas said.
It is information Thomas said she had already informed the daycare of both verbally and in writing before dropping her son off.
"I get up there and they're standing around my son. My son is lying on a table and the teacher is scared out of her mind.
"I immediately asked what happened?" said Thomas. "She tells me my son was playing in a corner and had a seizure, and he was unresponsive.
She said she didn't know my son had seizures or she wouldn't have stepped out of the classroom," Thomas said.
Thomas said she gave the daycare explicit instructions on the medication that her son would need in the event of a seizure.
"You're telling me that this form that you had me to fill out in detail, you're not going to follow that form?" Thomas asked.
As a result, paramedics took Xavien to the hospital and when Thomas requested to see the forms she initially filled out, she noticed they did not give her the documents detailing her son's health issues.
"They were trying to hide something. They were trying to cover up, hands down. They were trying to cover up for their mistakes," Thomas said.
So CBS Atlanta News went to MKS Learning Center on Flat Shoals Road on Thursday to ask them about the incident.
At first, no one would answer the door, later CBS Atlanta's Adam Murphy caught up with one of the employees.
"Is there anyone that we can speak with ma'am regarding an incident that occurred here this week?" Murphy asked.
"Only the director and she is busy right now," An MKS Learning Center Employee said.
"Can the director come out at a later time? It's important that we speak with you all," Murphy stated.
"I know it's important, but not at this present time," An MKS Learning Center Employee said.
"The time it takes the paramedics to get to the school to an emergency room is all it takes for my son to be permanently damaged," Thomas said.
CBS Atlanta News has learned that the state inspected the daycare in January and found they had been cited for poor record keeping.
Finally, Thomas said MKS Learning Center told her after the incident that her son is a liability and they do not want him to continue attending the facility.
"I'm disappointed, I'm disappointed because if that happens again it's at the risk of a child's life," Thomas said.
