UNION CITY, Ga. -

Union City police continue to investigate a break in at a daycare center that happened on Tuesday night. Thieves walked away with hundreds of dollars in electronics from the preschool on Shannon Parkway.

Workers at New Leaf Christian Learning Center arrived to open the daycare on Wednesday and found the place ransacked. Glass was shattered from several windows, and the main office was in disarray after a break in late Tuesday night.
    
The owner says her computer, a touchscreen monitor, a telephone and her video surveillance system were all missing.
 
"I rushed over as soon as possible, so I could get to the center.  When I came up it was like a crime scene.  Glass everywhere, the office had been broken into.  It was unbearable to just look at and that they would do that to a daycare," said director Xaviera Torrance.
 
Owner Lemonica Watson says in the past cars parked outside were broken into, but thieves never broke into the building until Tuesday.
  
Preschool staff say their main priority was to keep their preschoolers calm, and never letting the little ones know the problems the adults were dealing with.
 
"The saddest thing is we're low income daycare.  Parents get scholarships to come to this facility because they can't afford childcare. So when they do things like this they affect us, the parents, the children, and the community," said Watson.

The owner says she believes landscaping bricks used outside the facility may have been the tools the thieves used to get inside the daycare.

The incident remains under investigation by police.
