BATON ROUGE (WVLA) -- A child bites a day-care worker, and she bites back.  That's according to an arrest record.

It happened at the Color Wheel Learning Center.

Employees there told police they heard Tiffany Gray repeatedly telling a one-year-old boy not to bite her.

They say, when he bit her again, the 28-year-old bit the child on the wrist.

Gray reportedly told her co-workers she was only playing.

Color Wheel management says it fired Gray the same day.

Gray was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

She's facing one count of simple battery and one count of cruetly charges to a juvenile.

This situation would be hard for any parent to digest.
I had my child at Color Wheel Learning Center on Hwy 73, and they made all these promises that they did not follow through with. I felt i was lied to, my child did not get the quality of care or learning that they said she would get. The Assistant Directors were very caring and tried to help, to help and change the situation, but was unable to do so.
The other issue I had was the owner was never at the center and was never available.

I have two children in this daycare. My older child who is almost 5 has been going to Color Wheel since he was 5mths. They are a great facility! They handled the situation promptly by firing the employee and properly by notifying the authorites. I can't guarantee that another facility would go to the lengths they did to rectify the situation. I plan to stay with them until my younger child is too old to attend. The child that was bitten is also still in attendance along with the siblings!

I happend to withdraw my child from that center a week before this aired & glad I did. I just had my 2nd child & was asked if she would be joining the center. I am so glad I pulled mine out. I had no problems there but just call it mothers intuition!! I would have freaked out & pulled her out anyway after this story. I am still in shock!
