    Ms Finney told 7News that staff at the centre did not know 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 that she had been fiddling with it and got out. I don’t understand.’

    The shaken mum added that she was pulling Skyla out of the daycare, which she said has apologised to her.

    Ms Finney earlier said her daughter was moments from potentially being hit by a car.

    ‘She was seconds away — she went to take a step off the gutter to try and go on to the road,’ she told the ABC.  

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

    ‘We literally just saved the lives of two babies today,’ she told 7News.
