Woman Speechless After Finding This Behind Daycare, Then She Realize What's Happening Inside

Using a time out to discipline a child is effective and well-regarded, but the location the child takes the time out must be appropriate.

Related to this, police in Eagan, Minnesota are investigating whether a Kinder Care Daycare may have forced a child to take a time out outside during very cold weather. 

Note that the Kinder Care on Town Center Drive in Eagan advertises itself as a safe place for kids while their parents are at work or school, but it seems employees may have sent one of those kids out in the cold.

Apparently, a concerned citizen called police close to lunch time earlier this week to report a 4-year-old girl was standing outside the school without a coat. It turned out she’d been sent outside for a time out because she had been screaming in class. Note that the temperature at the time was around 3 degrees, but with wind chill it felt like -9.

“Putting a child outside in single digit temperatures is obviously not ok. So that's what we are trying to determine if that's what happened,” Officer Aaron Machtemes commented.

Although investigators are not sure exactly how long the girl was outside, they say she did not need medical attention. The police are talking to staff and parents to determine what happened and if this is a regular type of discipline at the facility.

“It all depends on circumstances of how out of control the child was. Why the child was taken outside in the first place. How long the child was outside. All those factors would go into whether or not there is a criminal charge,” Machtemes explained in an interview with local media.

Parents and neighbors comment that they've seen the staff give children time outs before, but not outside in freezing temperatures.
“I don't believe anyone here would discipline a child like that or that that is how a child should be disciplined in anyway. Anywhere,” noted a parent whose child attends the preschool.

Of interest, the Minnesota Department of Human Services confirms that it has an active investigation of the daycare, but privacy laws prevent it providing further details until the investigation is concluded.
