The Hands of Our Future daycare in Dover, DE, is under fire after three of its workers took the idea of a hands-on approach too seriously.

Three workers from the daycare center have been arrested for apparently encouraging toddlers to brawl while at the center. They were caught after cell phone video surfaced of two 3-year-olds fighting.

That video shows one child saying "He’s pinching me," while a daycare worker shrugs it off and responds, "No pinching, only punching."

The video, however, is being kept private because it's considered evidence.

“Clearly one of the children is crying and does not want to continue on and he is pushed back into the fray by one of the adults,” Dover Police Captain Tim Stump told CBS in Dover.

The daycare has had its local business license suspended pending a hearing.
