I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The best daycare in Forrest City. At least they don’t put cameras up in there bathrooms like some daycares do.

FORREST CITY, Arkansas -- A day care worker in Arkansas is accused of encouraging other kids to throw rocks at another child.

The employee was allegedly caught on video encouraging students to throw rocks at another child.

The video shows a child having rocks thrown at him by several other children at Teach and Tend Day Care.

The Forest City Police Department told WHBQ-TV they are investigating the incident.
According to a police report, a former day care employee said another worker allowed the children to throw rocks at the 3-year-old as a form of discipline.

The Department of Child Services is also investigating the incident.

The owner of the day care says that she's working with child services to clear up the matter.

If you’d like your own child to have stones thrown at them and emotionally scarred or be taught it’s ok to throw stones at other children as punishment, then this is the daycare for you. I don’t understand how the state of AR hasn’t revoked the license of this childcare facility. Beware do not leave your child here!
