JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A child was burned at a day care facility on Beach Boulevard on Thursday.

According to John Harrell of the Florida Department of Children and Families, it is unclear right now how the accident at A Child's Choice happened.

It is very early in the investigation and DCF is talking to the parents and the child care facility to get a clear picture of what happened, Harrell said.

Harrell said the problem at this point is that they're getting differing accounts from the family and the facility.

The day care has been inspected by DCF several times this year according to protocol. The last report from September shows no issues.
    
First for you, Harrell said this case serves as a reminder for parents: If something happens to your child at a day care, bring it to DCF's attention immediately.
    
Harrell said they could only start the investigation Friday after being notified after the fact.

Harrell said he did not have information on the child's condition.
