A Birmingham mom is demanding answers after her two-year old daughter returned from Erdington’s Little Ripley Nursery with one of her braids removed and placed in an envelope.
Shantal, a healthcare assistant at Edgbaston’s QE Hospital, was called to the nursery back in August and was informed that her daughter had lost one of the cornrows.
“When I found out, I was really worried that someone had tampered with my daughter’s hair,” said Shantal told ITV. “The hair is not easy to pull out, yet it has been removed so cleanly. It’s almost as if it has been waxed.The only way it would have dropped out is if Malaya had a medical condition and even if she did, it would come out in patches. I’ve been to the doctors, and there’s nothing wrong with Malaya.”
Soon after the strange incident, Shantal removed her daughter from the school, who had been at Little Ripley since she was nine months old.
The case of the missing braid remains a mystery since the nursery has yet to outline exactly what happened.
A spokesman for the school had only this to say – “This is highly confidential and there will be no comment. Procedure has been followed and everything is complete. That is all I can say.”
