“At this point in time we’re not dealing with any suspicions in relation to the death of the little boy,” Inspector Steve Flori told Seven.
But he said the incident had raised some questions about the way the centre was operating.
“It warrants our further investigation to find out exactly how these children were being cared for,” he said.
“When police were looking through the premises earlier to check on its condition they’ve found some locked doors. And when those doors have been opened they’ve actually found children in some of the rooms.”
There were reportedly six children being cared for at the centre.
