Nursery worker suspended after toddler was left alone for two hours in minibus on the hottest day of the year

A NURSERY worker has been suspended after a toddler was left alone on a minibus for two hours on the hottest day of the year.

The little girl, two, was found by the woman’s shocked colleagues after temperatures hit 32 degrees Celsius.

The charity which runs the nursery later admitted the child was left on the bus outside their premises for “more than two hours without staff knowing”.

The Camau Bach nursery at Aberystwyth, West Wales, has now been closed for a week for “staff training”.

It is run by a charity called Mudiad Meithrin and it confirmed Camau Bach will be closed for a week to allow the investigation and training to take place.

Yesterday saw temperatures of up to 92.3F (33.5C) in Britain, making it hotter than Saudi Arabia.

The member of staff responsible for the child was immediately suspended from her work.

It is understood the child was medically examined but was not in ill health.

A statement sent to parents said: “Following an incident we have decided to close the nursery for a week until Thursday July 28 so that in house training and maintenance can take place. Sorry for any inconvenience.”

The incident was referred to the Care and Social Services Inspectorate and the council’s safeguarding board.

It comes after reports a careless mum left her child in a sweltering car on the hottest day of the year while she shopped in Next.

The car was parked in a disabled spot at Watersfield Shopping Centre in Watford on Monday afternoon – at the time a record high 30C.

The young child was sat in a car seat while the mother browsed the shops.

Staff noticed the tot and tried to summon the mum on the loud speaker for around 40 minutes before she returned to the car.

The London Ambulance Service said it had had 300 more calls than usual on Tuesday and the RSPCA said it had also seen a spike in calls from members of the public concerned about dogs left in hot cars, conservatories, sheds and caravans.

Whether it's too hot or not no-one should leave a 2 year old child alone in a car at any time. It's complately irresponsible and she needs her head knocked together relating to looking after the safety of young children so quite right to suspend her from her job.

sorry...I dont see mere suspension as satisfactory

she should be imprisoned for a long time...whipped daily and when released branded on the forehead...never to recieve any benefits or such....left to starve...

THEN we might...just see some sort of reduction in these criminal failings in carers

Well this is exactly the sort of fuckwittery and carelessness that led to my friend's 2 and a half year old daughter hanging to death in her nursery,
