ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) – A 2-year-old boy was left at Chuck E. Cheese’s by his childcare provider after a field trip, according to the St. Charles Police Department.
He and 14 other children under five years old were taken to Chuck E. Cheese’s by two women who work for Rich & Little Daycare in Moline Acres, according to police.
Witnesses said the boy was left by the women and that he wandered around for about two hours.
“He was asking people to play, and saying that he did not know where his teachers were,” witness Jessica Eaton said. “Then the employees started trying to help make him happy by giving him coins to play games and food.”
The St. Charles Police Department and officials with Social Services were called to the scene. Police said employees at Chuck e. Cheese’s handled the situation “perfect.”
However, witnesses were not so kind to the childcare employees.
