Picture this: You go to pick your baby up from childcare and the place is quiet. Eerily quiet. The door are locked. The shutters are down. The centre has shut for the day.
But you haven’t picked up your baby son. He is still inside but the staff have left for the day and there is nobody there to get you to your child.
It’s an impossible scenario isn’t it?
One you couldn’t dream of happening here in Australia, but that’s is exactly what has happened in a NSW childcare centre just two days ago.
The father of the baby arrived to pick up his son from a Blue Mountain’s childcare centre on Monday and was surprised to find the centre closed.
Seven News reports that he was forced to call police when he couldn’t get in to the Little Smarts Daycare Centre knowing that his one-year-old was locked inside and the weather was sweltering.
Officers attended the scene and had to force their way into the building to reach the baby boy.
