Kindergarten staff held for beating kids

Two staffers at a kindergarten in Minhang District have been detained by police for abusing students, the Minhang District Education Bureau said yesterday, without giving the name of the kindergarten.

The bureau said it received a notification from police on Monday afternoon, saying that some staffers in a local kindergarten were suspected of hitting children.

An investigation confirmed the claim, and two were detained by police, said the bureau.

It added that it has ordered the kindergarten to fire the two staffers and will impose punishments on the school according to laws and regulations.

Minhang police confirmed to Shanghai Daily that a teacher and a childcare worker at a kindergarten were detained for 10 days and fined 500 yuan (US$78.5) each.

Police said they received a report about the illegal behaviors from parents at 2pm on Monday and launched an investigation immediately.

They found a 24-year-old teacher surnamed Xu and a 57-year-old surnamed Fang had beaten children in their class.

Police didn’t mention the kindergarten’s name. But photos, a video clip and posts spread online earlier alleged that teachers at the Joy-Kids JMZ Kindergarten had beaten children on the head, slapped them and forced them to drink water.
