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 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.
