ASHLAND, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A daycare employee in Ashland is facing charges in connection with assaulting a 5-year-old boy who would not lay down for a nap.

Last November, 49-year-old Kisten Dunn of Hudson is accused of jumping on the boy and smashing his head into the floor, all because he refused to get ready for nap time. Dunn is an employee of Just A Wee Daycare on Eliot Street. Court papers say the 49-year-old may have yelled at and ridiculed other children.

Dunn was fired by the daycare, and has been charged with assault and battery on a child causing serious bodily injury.
