PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – Three people have been arrested after a Phenix City mother alleges her son was mistreated at a local daycare, run out of someone's home.

According to Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones, the three people who were arrested are 45-year-old Cynthia Duman, 66-year-old Mary Parette, and 26-year-old Jennifer Parette.

All have been arrested and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child. All three women have been released from the Lee County Jail after making a $1,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing is set for August 15 at 9 a.m. CT at the Lee County Justice Center in Opelika.

Sydney Zimmerman says her 22-month old son, Slade, was placed in a dark closet while strapped in a car seat.

We have reached out to the daycare owner about the incident and no one was there at the time.

Sheriff Jones tells us his office and the state’s Department of Human Resources are conducting parallel investigations, his office into what happened at the home daycare and DHR looking at the daycare itself and the number of kids that were there.

Jones said his office is waiting on the issue of the warrant before moving forward.

According to the Alabama Department of Human Resources, for group day care homes, here are the requirements for a license:

  • Providing care for one or more children who are not related to the provider
  • With or without compensation
  • Away from the child's home
  • For more than four hours in a 24-hour period
