An employee had admitted to having sprayed and then made ingest a caustic product to an 11-month-old girl. She is in pre-trial detention, while the People & Baby group is the subject of an administrative investigation.
The Lyon crèche in which an 11-month-old girl died on June 22, 2022, probably killed by an employee who made her ingest a caustic product, has been definitively closed by the People & Baby group. The establishment had been administratively closed by the Rhône prefecture since the tragedy.
According to Francetvinfo, which reveals the information, the company anticipated a probable decision from the public services, while the metropolis of Lyon made the request for closure to the prefecture. Investigators from the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs (Igas) must also come to Lyon on Wednesday September 21 for an administrative investigation stage.

She has since been in pre-trial detention.
Crèches: the use of unqualified staff is controversial
According to Francetvinfo, the administrative investigation points out that the People & Baby group failed to update the crèche staff changes with the maternal and child protection (PMI), which therefore did not know if the employees were indeed authorized to exercise. “If these shortcomings do not explain the employee’s gesture, they do not allow a climate of trust to be established with the People & Baby group.“, Underlines a source close to the file.
