Another child abuse case surfaces in Tampines childcare centre, 9 Jul 2013
A second possible child abuse case has surfaced: The principal of a childcare centre in Tampines allegedly slapped and shoved a primary school boy against a wall, then made him stand in a corner of the room with a cardboard box over his head for three hours.
In addition to being made to stand in the corner, the boy was not allowed any food, water, or toilet breaks. The reason for his punishment: He had thrown a toy at a teacher.
According to a report in The New Paper, the incident was reported by an anonymous source who says the incident had occurred at a childcare centre in Tampines in April. The source had been prompted to report the story in light of the recent case of the 3-year-old who was abused at an NTUC childcare centre in Toa Payoh. Full story
