Let me add, if the abuse was be a licensed daycare employee, call their licensing agency too and file a complaint.

Report it immediately!!! I was in the same situation once and reported two incidences by one person to my boss. After the second time she finally got rid of the co-worker. CPS did interview me (what might be expected if you did so). Abuse is wrong in any case...child,adult,or pet.......and the person who has committed the abuse should suffer the consequences.

I have reported several incidents that have happened at work and what happened it the first lady who was doing the mistreatment was moved to another class. And now this lady who is doing the mistreatment has her own class so she spends most of the day alone with the kids. My supervisor asked me if I wanted to work with her and I clearly said no because she is too rough with the kids.................what did she say after that?? Absolutely nothing.
