Hi. I just wanted to let the parents of "Katie" who is blonde and was wearing navy tights and a corduroy pinover that her nanny was mistreating her today, (2/15) while within the grounds of Kowsky Plaza. The nanny was an older woman, possibly Polish (guessing at her accent), with brown and gray hair worn in a bun. She was dressed in slacks, a ski vest and a tan turtleneck. This nanny was very shrill with the child and at one time grabbed her arm very hard with her whole hand wrapped around it twice and scolded her. She had grabbed the child so hard that when she let go the whole child's body fell away. I heard the child called Katie and I was hoping to note someone who knew this child or her parents. Katie was wearing children's dress shoes, blue with a buckle. I don't know why "Katie" was disciplined. She spent most of her time playing alone, but at one point had approached a female child who was about 4 and attempted to befriend her. From my observation point, it appeared that is why the nanny got up and stormed over to her. (??) Honestly, it is hard to know what was going on there, but the grabbing of the child was very harsh.
