Christopher Knaus Child witnesses are expected to give evidence in prosecutions of three childcare workers accused of assaults at a Canberra centre. The third worker, Samantha Grutzner, 30, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday, charged with four common assaults. The workers are accused of using excessive force on children as young as one at the Northside Community Service Civic Early Childhood Centre. All three childcare workers have now pleaded not guilty, and plan to fight the charges at trial, represented by Ben Aulich and Associates. The proceedings have been adjourned to late January, when they will return for case management. Prosecutors told the court on Tuesday that the matters were complex and would require the calling of numerous child witnesses. The prosecution is currently reviewing the briefs of evidence to see whether it's possible to leave out some of those witnesses. Police began investigating allegations of assault after reports were made to management in April this year. The allegations, first raised last year, took some time to make their way from the centre to management. A series of probes were launched, and Northside Community Services said it has moved to ensure it does everything it can to avoid a repeat at any of its centres.
