WOODCLIFF LAKE - A day care teacher in Bergen County is accused of physically abusing children at the KinderCare Learning Center in Woodcliff Lake.

Police say that Shara Goldstein, of River Edge, pushed children to the floor, threw objects at them and also dropped children while she was caring for them.

Police were notified by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families after allegations of children being abused by Goldstein surfaced.

A spokesperson for KinderCare issued a statement to News 12 New Jersey that said in part, “Ms. Goldstein’s alleged actions are completely contrary to the commitment we make to parents each day to provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for our children”

Four children have been identified as victims.

Goldstein is charged with child abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. She is no longer employed by KinderCare.
