Another shocking tale of mistakes at a Childcare center.
When daddy arrived to collect his son from the Little Smarts Daycare Center in Blaxland he found the staff had already left for the day, leaving his child asleep inside.
He called the police who then forced their way inside and found the boy in an air-conditioned room.
The child’s parents declined to speak on camera and but told 7News, they are “very happy with the childcare centre and continue to use it”.
“The most important thing is our baby boy is safe,” they said.
The centre’s owner said the child was only unattended for 20 minutes due to a miscommunication between staff and that more checks were being put in place to avoid a repeat.
Nesha O’Neill from the Australian Childcare Alliance NSW said: “There is always going to be human error. We have very strong regulations in place that are designed to prevent this happening, and given the amount of children in care…it’s very, very rare”
Police said they will not be pursue the matter as the child was not injured.
The Department of Education said it will conduct a full investigation and appropriate action will be taken.
