BURLINGTON (CBS) – A KinderCare Learning Center teacher is on administrative leave amid allegations of being rough with a child.
Burlington Police and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care are now investigating the day care on Cambridge Street.
Police say they received a report of an alleged assault and battery by an adult on a child that occurred at the center on Monday.
KinderCare released a statement to WBZ-TV saying in part: “At KinderCare, we work hard to provide every child with a safe, nurturing environment to learn and grow in. We take all concerns about children’s safety seriously and follow a very specific protocol anytime a concern is raised.”
KinderCare says the teacher in question has not been back since the concern was raised and will remain on leave until further notice.
