Parents to press charges against kindergarten school for alleged abuses of their 2-year old child

The parents of a two-year old school girl have demanded the management of a wellknown kindergarten school in Muang district of Nakhon Si Thammarat to show responsibility over the alleged beatings of her daughter by an assistant teacher.

The parents, whose names were not disclosed, lodged a complaint with the Muang district police on Tuesday after she found out that her two-year old daughter had bruises all over her body when she undressed her for a shower. She added that the kid appeared to be frightened of something.

They went to the kindergarten school to find out what happened to her child and none of the teachers could give her an answer to her satisfaction.

When the parents found out that there was a CCTV system at the school, then asked the police to go to the school with them to examine footages from the system.

It was then that the parents and the police found out that the child, whose name was withheld, was badly mistreated by an assistant teacher in front of the teacher and another assistant who did not intervene to stop the abuses.

The school management reportedly tried to talk the parents to keep the abused child at the school and agreed to refund them the 14,000 baht tuition fee, but did not mention the incident at the school.

The parent said they rejected the deal offered by the management and vowed to press charges against those responsible for the alleged abuses of their daughter.
