Parents Say Children Injured at Windsor Locks Preschool: Police

Police are investigating a Windsor Locks preschool after parents reported that their children were injured, police said.

Three different parents have told police about an incident involving their children being injuraed at the New England Preschool Academy sometime in April. 

The owner of the preschool, Cathy DelGreco, said the incident does involve one of her teachers and that the woman was not allowed to come back pending the outcome of the investigation. DelGreco said while the woman was teacher, she was not a preschool teacher. 

DelGreco said the one parent called on Friday and another on Saturday about an incident involving two children. DelGreco said she called into the Department of Children and Families on Saturday. 

The Office of Early Childhood Advocate received a complaint about the incident. While it is not clear what took place at the preschool, the OEC said in a statement the complaint involved "allegations of abuse or neglect".

OEC said the agency collaborates with the Department of Children and Families to investigate such allegations. 

The DCF is working with Windsor Locks police on the investigation and it did not have any comment.
