CALL 6: No charges in Fishers daycare investigation

Mother alleges she witnessed abuse

FISHERS, Ind. -- The Fishers Police Department said Friday no criminal charges will be filed or requested following an investigation at the Play School at Saxony Village, a licensed child care center.

A mother told Fishers Police and Call 6 Investigates Kara Kenney that she walked in on a day care worker slamming her son, 22 months, into his cot and throwing covers over his head.

“After a thorough investigation, it has been determined that no criminal charges will be filed or requested,” read a news release from the Fishers Police Department.

The mother, who did not yet want to be identified, said she also contacted the Indiana Department of Child Services and FSSA, the state agency that licenses child care facilities.
FSSA has not yet released any findings, and DCS’s findings would not be public record.

The Play School at Saxony Village released the following statement Wednesday: 

“We pride ourselves on our stellar reputation in the community and with the state licensing agencies. A parent recently did make an allegation that her son was mistreated. We have notified parents enrolled at our facility of the allegation. The Family and Social Services Administration completed its review today. While the final report has not yet been published, as we anticipated, we understand the FSSA concluded the allegation was “undetermined, not-validated.” As we have throughout our 28 years in business, we will continue to focus on the health and safety of our students and to act as good stewards for our parents.”
