Mercury News.com is reporting that a preschool is being investigated after a former employee allegedly tied up a 2-year-old girl for refusing to take her nap and later showed photos of it to other teachers, including the child’s mother.
“PLEASANTON — …”A complaint filed March 5 with the Department of Social Services alleges that a former teacher of Centerpointe Christian Preschool bound the child’s wrists and ankles with masking tape, then made her sit on a cot while she took a photograph.”
“According to a church statement, nobody knew about the incident until months later, when the employee pulled out her cellphone at a social gathering earlier this month and showed photos of the child to two current staff members. One of the teachers who viewed the photo was the mother of the child in the photograph.”
“We are appalled and shocked that such an incident, if proven to be true, took place. Every human person made in the image of God, all of the children in our care, deserve the highest degree of respect and protection from any action that dehumanizes them,” said Pastor Mike Barris.”
