Day Care Worker Defends Herself

June 28, 2011 | Blog

An Indiana day care worker is speaking out saying she did not hit a toddler in her care hard and was not fired.

According to https://www.theindychannel.com/ Bernadette Hardy said she barely swatted the child. The Department of Child Services investigated after the child’s mother called to file a police report saying her daughter had a possible bruise.

Hardy said she was unaware of Nannie Capen’s Home Day Care policy stating physical punishment would not be used, even if requested by a parent.

In Indiana, licensed day care center workers are not allowed to spank children, but those who run home day cares can as long as parents are aware of a policy that states they use corporal punishment.
