A Gold Coast childcare operator says an investigation is underway into reports two toddlers escaped from its centre.

A video posted to a community page on social media shows two young children running towards busy Foxwell Road yesterday, before older school children and another woman stopped them.

It happened near the Okeedokee Coomera Rivers childcare centre on Gunther Avenue.

A spokeswoman from Okeedokee said it was cooperating with an Education Department investigation.

Donna Urquhart's granddaughter, Skyla Finney-Hampton, was one of the two children who nearly ran onto the road.

Constant harassment but Andrews keeps his cool

  Constant harassment but Andrews keeps his cool Readers discuss journalists' behaviour at the Premier's daily press conferences.It is the disrespect shown to the office of Premier by one or two journalists that I find difficult to watch. Indeed, his polite and patient responses seem to provoke an even greater degree of harassment, with questions disguised as bald assertions, constant interruptions and a shrillness that makes me wonder what other journalists must be thinking. Although I am angry at how we came to be in this lockdown, I feel sympathy for Daniel Andrews having to tolerate these uncivilised interactions.

Toddler airlifted to hospital after being attacked by dingoes. Lifeflight pilot Frank Bertoli said if it was not for his parents and their quick thinking , the toddler would have had more serious injuries. They panicked and ran back towards the vehicle and it was at that time the pack chased them and attacked.

"I'm just thankful Skyla is still here today and is safe," Ms Urquhart said, adding that Skyla had just turned two.

"I want to thank the lady who stopped and the school kids who saved her."

On the local community Facebook page a member posted that she had witnessed the incident.

"We just literally saved the lives of two babies today as they were stepping onto the busy road near the Foxwell Road Finnegan Way roundabout," Rondell Nicol said.

"They walked through an open gate at Okeedokee Coomera Rivers.

"The staff excuse was that they didn't know the gate was open and didn't know where the babies were.

"The police have been contacted and dashcam footage made available."

Queensland police and the Department of Education have been contacted for comment.

The Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland said it cannot comment on open and ongoing investigations.
