Daycare Workers Fired For Doing This To A 17-Month-Old Who Kept Taking Off Her Shoes

As a parent, the problem with modern life these days is just how much time is spent working so you can provide a good life for your child.

With costs climbing and wages staying low, many parents are forced to both work, leaving their child in the care of a daycare center.

Of course, considering just how precious any child is are and how young some of these children are, you would expect that a facility dedicated to the care of young children would be caring and gentle.

Alas, that wasn’t the experience Jessica Hayes’s 17-month-old daughter had.

Hayes is a single mother who has to spend most of her day working to provide for her toddler.

Because of this, she regularly leaves the girl in the capable hands of the staff at Pleasant Hill daycare, a daycare center located in Elkin, North Carolina.

Normally, she is quite satisfied with the service.

The latest incident that had occurred when she picked up her daughter from the daycare, however, has made her understandably mad.

Upon viewing the photos Hayes has uploaded to Facebook, it is immediately apparent just why Hayes was outraged.

There are multiple layers of masking tape wrapped tightly around the girl’s ankles and feet.

The tape was pasted directly against the child’s skin and tight enough that you can see how it was digging into her flesh.

Hayes expressed her thoughts on how she was upset over the whole incident, as it was clear that whoever performed the deed was severely annoyed by the little girl constantly taking her shoes off.

It was an act done out of aggravation against a child who didn’t know any better.

The marks the tape left on Hayes’s daughter were bad as well, in addition to it having being tight and left on for a long enough time to cause bruising and swelling.

All this had been done by two staff members on a little girl who was learning to take her shoes off simply because they were frustrated.

As any person who works in childcare would know well, toddlers are still learning where and when they should do things and are often overly eager to remove clothing and shoes once they learn how to do so.

Shocked and upset, Hayes then confronted the daycare director, who turned out to have been unaware of the incident and was entirely speechless.

To the daycare’s credit, they reacted quickly and accordingly.

They dismissed the two staff members responsible, and then issued a note to all parents to inform them about the incident so that awareness was raised.

As it turned out, Hayes’s daughter wasn’t the only child at the receiving end of such a horrible treatment.

Many parents later reported on Hayes’s Facebook post that they found their children in a similar state upon picking them up on the same day as Hayes’s incident.

You would have thought that this was enough to deter Hayes from trusting the daycare center, but this mother has since announced that she is still keeping her daughter enrolled at the daycare, as she is positive such an incident will not happen again.
