A mother whose daughter escapes from a daycare center with a friend and nearly walked into traffic says her girl will never return to the daycare center again.

Amelia Finney’s two-year-old daughter Skyla and another young girl were found along a busy Gold Coast road after blowing out of the Okeedokee Coomera Rivers daycare center Friday.

Dashcam footage shows drivers and pedestrians running to stop the girls from taking to the road in the nick of time.

Ms. Finney told 7News that the center staff did not know that Skyla was missing.

They didn’t know the gate was open. They had no idea. That’s just really scary, ”she said.

They said the gate had been manipulated from the outside and she had fiddled with it and got out. I do not understand. ‘

The shocked mother added that she pulled Skyla from daycare, which she said she apologized for.

Ms. Finney previously said her daughter could be hit a short distance from a car.

‘She was seconds away – she went one step down the gutter to try and hit the road,’ she told the ABC.

Rondell Nicol, who helped keep the children from walking the busy road, said it could have ended in disaster.

“We literally saved the lives of two babies today,” she said 7 News.

A Queensland police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia that agents are aware of the incident and are making inquiries.

Queensland’s education department said they were aware and are investigating the ‘serious incident’.

A spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia: “Authorized ministry officials will attend the service today as part of the investigation.

“The last review and review of the service was in September 2016 and the quality review was determined to be up to standards.”

“Since the investigation has only just begun, it is too early to identify possible violations and relevant sanctions.”

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Okeedokee Coomera Rivers for comment.
