Children were force fed until they vomited, slapped and slammed to the ground at a Glastonbury daycare.

Arrest warrants just released show what allegedly went on inside the Stork Club Daycare in Glastonbury and lead to the arrest of an employee and the director.

East Hartford mother of two Brandy Klapik is speaking out about the issues she had with the facility.

"Within weeks of being there we had an issue,” Klapik said. “They flat out didn't feed her because she wasn't crying."

Klapik has a difficult time looking back on her daughter's experience at the Stork Club. She said there have been problems for years.

"Sorry, this whole thing was disgusting,” Klapik said. “My husband said I need to speak up and let everyone know what happened."

Klapik said not only did employees miss feedings, she claimed her daughter would come home filthy. Her clothes sometimes covered in spit up and bleach.

Klapik said she pulled both of her children from the facility in 2012 and filed a complaint with the state.

"Disgusted.  It's sickening,” Klapik said. “You trust these people to care for your kids." 

Unrelated to Klapik's accusations, daycare employee Nicky Mayo and director Meegan Beach were arrested on Monday.

Mayo is accused of forced feeding a 2-year-old child until they choked and turned blue. She is also accused of gagging others until they vomited.

The arrest warrant states someone “had witnessed Nicole Mayo shove a fork into their child's mouth and that blank cried so Nicole hit the child in the back of the head."

"I got sick to my stomach.  And I was mad.  I was really mad,” Klapik said. “It brings up everything you've tried to let go."

Police said Beach failed to report multiple complaints made by employees about the abuse.

"Blank stated while working in the toddler room with Nicole, observed Nicole, more than twenty (20) times, aggressively pick up children under their arms and slam them to the floor.  Blank stated blank reported this to Meegan on four (4) or five (5) separate occasions during this time frame and nothing was done about it,” the arrest warrant stated.

"And she did nothing,” Klapik said. “How as a mother can you do that?"

Klapik said she has a message to Mayo and Beach.

"They should be ashamed of themselves,” Klapik said. “They really should."

Mayo and Beach are expected to be in court next month.

Eyewitness News reached out to Stork Club's corporate office to get their reaction, but were told no comment.
