The day care centre was accused of locking out the child for nearly four hours letting him cry, despite being sick and on medication.
The video, which was shot by a neighbour, shows the child crying and knocking on the door to be let in while another child looks on.
In a Facebook post, the parents said that the owner of the day care centre was arrested after a police complaint was filed but was released on bail.
“We as parents will not let this go and will see it through till the end. What was done to our kid was truly cruel and a punishable offence….how blind and inhuman can one be to watch my son scream his head off for hours. What about the effect it had on the other children who were at the day care? The neighbours have confirmed and given in their statements saying that our son was screaming for hours in distress,” the parents of the child said.
The parents said that the child was sick that day and the day care was informed and handed over medication and yet he was kept outside exposed in just a pamper.
“We have been blessed and had many people reach out to us with help and advise and we are so grateful for this. Kids are the future and their foundation is really important and Day cares and montessori’s should have stronger regulations to operate and not let monsters or unprofessional inhuman people like this run them,” the parents of the boy said.
