A mother was horrified when she picked up her daughter from nursery and discovered her shoes had been taped onto her feet by staff. Jessica Hayes shared the disturbing images on social media showing her 17-month-old daughter with the pink shoes taped on after she was picked up from Pleasant Hill Daycare in North Carolina.
Alongside the picture, she wrote: ‘Someone was clearly upset that she was learning to take her shoes off and done it out of being aggravated. ‘This was also not just her shoes being taped up it was around her ankle, my 17-month-old child was unable to say anything. ‘This was left on long enough and tight enough to leave marks, cause swelling, and bruise.’
After raising her concern with the nursery, two staff members were fired and a note was sent out to parents, though they did not go into specifics of the incident.
