Multiple alleged cases of child abuse at Busy Bees Baldivis

News Today || Headlines Today

A local daycare centre is at the centre of chilling sexual abuse allegations as parents claim their children are being assaulted by other children under the age of five.

The parents, who wish to be kept anonymous, made the accusations against Busy Bees Baldivis, claiming their three-year-old daughter told them she had been sexually abused by another child.

“When they start talking about things that they don’t understand, you know your child doesn’t understand the words they are saying even, and the actions they’re making, it’s quite hard,” the father told 7NEWS.

Another mother also claims her young daughter was sexually abused weeks earlier after witnessing a sex act in a cubby house at the daycare centre. She alerted the centre via email in September.

“From the very first case, there have been multiple cases for a month and a half,” the father said.

A third child from the centre revealed he was also sexually abused, telling his mother at the dinner table of the experience.

“My son said that he told the educator (of the abuse),” the mother said.

She contacted the centre over the “vile” story, and the centre responded saying they were aware of it. As a result of the alleged abuse, the four-year-old boy now refuses to undress in front of his parents.

The parents believe there have been three abusers, all under the age of five.

“I know my son is safe now, I know the other kids that’s been removed are safe with their parents. We don’t know what’s happening to the other boys that are involved,” the mother said.

The allegations will have to be investigated by the Department of Communities as WA Police won’t investigate when the alleged perpetrators are under the age of 10.

These reports come after another local childcare centre was fined $25,000 last month for not providing proper first aid to a young boy whose arm was burnt by a scolding tea.

Bluebird Early Learning Centre became one of 43 childcare or Out of School Hours Care centres that have had action taken against them for serious safety breaches since 2019.
