A local in-home educator who was employed by Australia’s Leading Home Care Agency (ALHCA) – part of Armadalia – is continuing to work, despite allegations of neglecting an autistic child.

The woman was hired to provide in-home care to a local child with autism after he was continuously suspended from the Village Early Learning Education Centre, in Maiden Gully. 

Despite the Commission for Children and Young People finding that the claim is substantiated, the Village Early Learning Education Centre employed the carer.

The child’s mother claims her son was left unattended multiple times, filmed, and taken from his home without permission.

The same centre in Maiden Gully is also under investigation by Local Police and the Commission concerning separate incidents with the same child including unreasonable discipline, being unaccounted for and being physically restrained by multiple staff.

Gold Central Victoria’s in-house Journalist, Tayla Oates, has more on the exclusive report.

The Village Early Learning Education Centre, in Maiden Gully and Australia’s Leading Home Care Agency has been contacted for comment.
