When parents drop their children off at daycare, they assume that the kids will be well taken care of. Sadly, one daycare in Cranford, New Jersey had other ideas. Furthermore, the Lightbridge Academy daycare is now under fire for two employees having “fight club” type of fighting between toddlers.
22-year-old, Erica Kenny, and 28-year-old, Chaese White has both been charged with allegedly staging fights between children age’s four to six. Likewise, according to video clips more than a dozen boys and girls within the daycare are seen shoving each other to the ground and hitting one another.
Even more horrifying there is video of not just group fighting but also one on one brawl as well. In one of the videos, Kenny is heard encouraging the children to physically strike one another. Luckily, none of the children involved in the video clips were injured.
Both Kenny and White have been fired after they were criminally charged with fourth-degree child abuse. Kenny is also facing third-degree endangering the welfare of a child as well.
