WA today reports that a couple, Leeanne and Mark Anderson were leaving the centre about 11am on Wednesday when a young boy stepped in front of their vehicle and they slammed on the brakes.
When they brought the child back inside the centre and asked the crèche staff members if they knew where his parents were, he was identified as a child under their care.
Mrs Anderson said it seemed that the carers were not aware the child had been missing.
“I’m absolutely horrified – my three-month-old baby was in their care yesterday but I will never use the crèche again,” she said.
“What if someone had just walked up and taken my baby’s pram out the door and they didn’t even know about it?
