A man has been charged with raping children as young as five years old at his wife’s family day care centre.
The Brisbane man aged in his 50s allegedly raped a five-year-old girl and sexually assaulted a six-year-old girl at his family home in Brisbane.
The man’s wife runs a day care centre at the family home where the children were allegedly sexually assaulted, Yahoo!7 reported.
One of the girls’ mothers said she was horrified because the centre she entrusted with her child was subcontracted by a state-wide day care operator.
The mother also said the alleged rapist told the children they were to keep the alleged sexual abuse a secret.
‘I feel sick in the stomach,’ she told 7 News.
‘Parents put their trust in these family day care schemes.
‘To trust that their child will be safe and unharmed for the time that they are in care, and that didn’t happen with my child.’
The accused predator held a Blue Card, which meant he was screened by the Queensland monitoring system and deemed safe to work with children.
The home day care centre has now been shut down and the man is due to face court later this week charged with indecent dealing with children.
