Parents have been left furious after their four-year-old girl was taped to a chair at a daycare centre.
Elysha Brooks and Christian Evans are demanding answers after authorities contacted them with images of their daughter bound to a char at the Little Learners of Florissant Daycare in Missouri, USA.
The incident is believed to have taken place in March, with Brooks posting to Facebook that the daycare still hadn't informed the family of the event.
"I'm looking at a picture of my daughter duck taped to a chair, and her facial expression, I can just imagine how she felt," Brooks said.
"One of her teachers DuctTaped her to a Chair and posted her on SC (Snapchat). Received a call from a hotline and they sent me this pic of my baby.
"This incident supposedly happened in March and the daycare still fails to inform us of the situation. Also failed to document an incident of a rock being lodged in my baby ear that almost damaged her eardrum."
Now the family is trying to get the day care shut down, with the girl's father telling WBRC: "Whoever did this to my child, whoever it is, either - it's not an either - she needs to be in jail.
"Seeing your child duck taped to a chair, seeing the anxiety, seeing how scared your kid is, knowing for one that you're not there to protect them and knowing for two that you have people around that would stoop to that level to hurt your child puts you in a crazy mind state."
The daycare is yet to respond to local media's requests for an interview.
