Prescott Valley- Courtsey (fox-10news)
Both Gummy Bear Childcare Centers in Prescott Valley were closed today, and the owner told FOX 10 by phone she didn’t want to go on camera, that they are now closed indefinitely. The owner said she and staff members have received numerous threats by phone and on social media.
The owner, Kendra Hagerty, said Blankenship has worked for her for about six months, and Hagerty said she never had any issues with Blankenship, and no one has ever complained about him. She also said he passed all testing and background checks.
Hagerty says she is deeply sorry for what’s happened and said she is cooperating fully with police. She also hopes Blankenship is prosecuted to the fullest for what he allegedly did.
