Roswell police say that two preschool teachers are in jail because they hurt kids in their classrooms.

Representatives of the school say that it happened last week in the Pre-Primary B classroom at Parker-Chase Preschool. The campus is at the end of Holcomb Bridge Road in Alpharetta.

The police showed a surveillance tape that they said is being used as evidence in the case.

Students ages 2 and 3 can be seen sitting on a rug in the classroom on a video captured from inside the classroom. One teacher goes up to one of the students and gets on his or her knees. As the second teacher walks up behind the kids, she gets close to the child.

The second teacher steps on the child’s hand, which was palm down on the floor behind the child, and keeps her foot there. Then that teacher walks over to the next child and uses her knee and shin to kick that child in the back.

Video shows that the teacher is eye-level with the child and points her index finger in the child’s face. She then pushes the child’s forehead, which makes the child’s head move. 

Still on her knees, the teacher turns away from the kids and walks on her knees away from the camera.

Parents want the police and the state to look into the whole school because they are worried that more preschoolers may have been hurt.

Zeina Alostwani, who is 40 years old, and Soriana Briceno, who is 19 years old, were taken into custody by Roswell police. They are both charged with the first-degree crime of being cruel to children.
