Our trust was broken when we left our son in the care of the crèche. I also feel we should have been told about the incident as soon as they were made aware of it, they contacted their legal team etc before letting my husband and I know. (we were in and out of the crèche for a couple of days since they were informed of the incident and nothing was said to us).
The final straw was when the 4 members of staff present (stated in the incident report we received 8 days after being told) declined to give a police statement.
This happened when my youngest child was only 2 weeks old, my sons behaviour changed and we put it down to the new arrival of baby but looking back now it all makes sense.
This has been incredibly upsetting and stressful and I feel my son has been let down by the staff in that crèche.
I hope you can help.
Thank you for your honest reply Jo, much appreciated.
Apologies should have mentioned what exactly happened. Children were sitting in a circle at story time & my son and a friend got up from circle and went to another part of the room, the staff member picked him up and brought him back to the other children, he moved away again and she tugged him by the t-shirt and is seen having words with him. My son then had to sit beside the staff member, he wanted to take his shoes off so the staff member pulled his shoes off and threw them across the room she then pulled him by his arm on to his feet turned him round and pushed him across to another member of staff.
The police have got a copy of the CCTV and she is being brought in for questioning at the beginning of July.
