Authorities Investigating Alleged Assault of a Child at Burlington Daycare


Authorities are investigating a situation at a Burlington daycare after a parent alleged an employee assaulted her son.


Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan's office said on Wednesday that they “received a report of an allegation of a potential assault and battery of a child by an adult that occurred at KinderCare in Burlington on Monday, Aug. 6.”


The DA’s office said they are investigating the incident with the Burlington Police.


NBC Boston reported that the mother told them that her 4-year-old son was grabbed by his arm and thrown onto a cot during naptime. NBC also said the mother, who also has a 1-year-old daughter at the same daycare, had witnessed the same teacher “being aggressive” to her son two weeks prior to this alleged incident.


Multiple outlets are reporting that a representative from KinderCare said that the teacher in question was placed on administrative leave after the allegation was made and will remain so until further notice.
