Statement from KinderCare

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. - We would like to thank everyone in the community and around the country who have expressed their support for the families and staff of our Winter Park KinderCare, particularly for the family who is grieving the loss of their child. Your messages are greatly appreciated by all of us in the KinderCare family, and we stand with you in expressing our sorrow for what has taken place.

It’s our understanding that at this time two children and their teacher have been released from the hospital. We continue to pull for those who remain hospitalized and those with less significant injuries to quickly recover from this tragic accident.

We are reaching out to each of our families from the Goldenrod center to offer them our ongoing support. We hope to heal with them and to continue to be able to educate and nurture their children in the days ahead.

There are no words to express our sorrow, especially to the family who suffered the unimaginable loss of their young child. We all mourn together this senseless tragedy and thank everyone for their continued support.
