A foreign kindergarten teacher was arrested by police in Qingdao, Shandong province for allegedly molesting a young girl, CCTV reported

According to a report by the People’s Procuratorate of Shibei District, Qingdao on July 23, the teacher molested the student in January of this year during the childrens’ lunchtime nap. China Daily reported that video footage inside the classroom shows the male teacher entering the room and putting his hands into the girl’s bedding for about one minute. A Chinese caretaker had left to use the bathroom at the time.

After the girl told her parents, the family reported the case to the Shibei Public Security Bureau. Police detained the teacher on January 29, immediately after the case was brought to light. The kindergarten only revealed that the teacher, named Daniel, is from the Republic of Colombia and was born in 1984.

According to the Paper, the disturbing incident took place at a kindergarten run by RYB Education Inc., which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. 

Another kindergarten operated by RYB in Beijing made headlines in November 2017, after multiple parents complained that their children were found with needle marks on their bodies and fed unidentified pills. Liu Ya’nan, the teacher involved in the child abuse, was sentenced to prison for one and a half years and was barred from working in the education field for five years.
