Video shows children throwing rocks at another child after a teacher told them to “teach him a lesson.”
The incident took place at Teach N Tend Daycare in Forrest City, Arkansas.
A whistleblower at the centre filmed the incident once she realised what was going on.
She quit her job, went to police to file a report, and emailed the smartphone footage to the police, Fox 13 reports.
The woman said that she and other employees were outside when she saw the teacher in question tell the four-year-old to go and sit down.
Agitated, the boy allegedly picked up some rocks and threw them at the ground.
According to the police report, the teacher then instructed the students to throw rocks at the boy. A half-dozen or so children then began to pelt the child, while he howled in pain.
The former employee who filed the report says that she has witnessed other such incidents at the childcare.
However, the owner of Teach N Tend, Carla Busby, claims the police report was filed by a disgruntled former employee.
