Operator of Day Care Targeted in Police Raid Previously Under Fire for Abusive Behavior

A day care worker at Minnieland Academy in Bristow, Virginia, Taylor Boykin, was arrested last week after being accused of sexually assaulting four children over the course of a year. A raid was executed at that facility, but recent reports have surfaced that the issue may not be contained to this location. Though there is no indication that Boykin’s transgressions took place beyond the Bristow location, the operator of the academy has previously dealt with allegations of abuse at several of its other locations.

Two teachers at a Minnieland Academy location in Manassas were accused of abusive behavior in a classroom of 2 year-olds in 2016. The prosecutor portrayed the incident in that location as a “baby fight club.” The two teachers were convicted of child cruelty and other charges stemming from the incident. The company also navigated a scandal involving sexual assault in 2010 at their Centreville location, and yet another child cruelty charge in 2013 out of their Woodbridge location. Despite this recurring pattern of troubling behavior by employees, a FOX 5 investigation into Minnieland found that the day care center had several violations recorded by the Department of Social Services regarding expired criminal background checks on its employees across several of its locations.

The investigation into Boykin and Minnieland Academy are ongoing.
