    Daycare Director Arrested After Employee Accused of Child Abuse
    Glastonbury Police
    Meegan Beach, 40, is accused of failing to report suspected child abuse by an employee at the daycare she runs in Glastonbury.

    Glastonbury police have arrested the director of a daycare just days after the arrest of an employee accused of hitting children at the facility.

    Meegan Beach, 40, of Hebron, was arrested on Monday.

    Beach is charged with failing to report child abuse after police say her employees at the Stork Club daycare made her aware of the abuse of children at the hands of another employee, Nicole Mayo.

    Mayo, 22, was arrested on Friday after a 3-month investigation.

    According to police, investigators found no evidence that Beach reported the alleged abuse to the Department of Children and Families or authorities.

    Daycare providers are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse to the proper authorities.

    Beach is being held on $45,000 bond.
