After a hard day’s work, an Indian couple here reached a childcare centre to pick up their baby, only to find the place locked and in darkness. It took nearly an hour before their one-year-old daughter was found sleeping inside.
When Mr Bharat and Mr Gayatri Iyengar arrived at the Scribbles and Giggles child-care centre in Sydney’s western suburb of Rydalmere to pick up their daughter Ankita on Monday evening, they found the centre closed. "When I got there I found the childcare centre closed. It was dark; there was nothing happening there. That was a shock to me because it was only 6.04 pm and the centre closes at 6 pm," Mr Iyengar told
"At that point I started to freak out because I thought, ‘Nobody has called us, there’s a chance the baby could be inside’. We couldn’t get in touch with anyone from the centre," he said. The parents called the police, who tracked the centre’s owner. "The owner arrived about 6.50 pm. We went into the centre and switched on the lights. There she was, lying harnessed in a bouncer in the dark. I picked the baby up and just held her in my arms and she started crying," Mr Iyengar told
