It’s every parent’s nightmare: instead of being in capable hands when they’re dropped off at the childcare centre, your child is instead being hit, scolded, and physically forced to do things they don’t want to do.
This was the case with the recent incident of abuse and misconduct that happened at a childcare centre in Woodlands, where a teacher was filmed on different occasions smacking children and forcing their head back to drink water. The parents of the children involved had no idea that this was going on in school until the videos had circulated online, as their kids were still too young to express what was happening and the incidents had been downplayed by the centre.
How do you know if something similar might be happening to your child? Here’s how to spot the warning signs and prevent your little one from becoming an innocent victim.
