Knightdale, N.C. — KinderCare has placed a teacher at its Knightdale day care center on administrative leave while an allegation of child abuse is investigated.
Police said they were called to the day care on Tuesday by a mother who said the teacher had assaulted her 6-year-old child. Paramedics checked the child out, and no charges have been filed so far.
KinderCare officials said the administrative leave is part of the protocol followed whenever an abuse allegation is made. The allegation has been reported to state licensing and child welfare officials, and company officials said they are cooperating with all state and local investigations.
