In response to the situation, both the Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) are now investigating the alleged child abuse.

Yet another ill-treatment of kids at another kinderland branch.
For god sake, this government must order this kinderland school to close. Revoke all WP/SP/EP of all teachers and deport them back. It is not a good schooling and working environment in kinderland for kids and adults.
The owner and principals all failed to make these kindergartens a conducive environment.

Hire foreigners to come here ill-treat the locals. This is the wrong way Singapore is running now. Vote for a complete change. Singapore must reset.
Same unexposed ill-treatment in most hospitals and old folk homes.
SGov, please don’t give us the excuse of manpower shortage, increased job scope and burden…as if other people are living and working relax.
From this case, I advocate all people to demand a law amendment to allow females also liable to be caned.

Guess another talent from a far far away land.
But someone high high will always come up with the retort…”Cos NO LOCAL WANTS TO DO THIS JOB BUT EXPECTS SUCH TALENTS TO LOOK AFTER YOUR BRATS”.
Shuts the local up….every time!😆😆😆😆
