A four-year-old girl’s parents are demanding that child services shut down a Missouri daycare center after they were sent a picture of the child duct-taped to a chair.

The Missouri Department of Children and Family Services sent a picture to Elysha Brooks and Christian Evans showing their daughter taped to the chair at Little Learners of Florissant in Florrisant, Missouri.

‘One of her teachers DuctTaped her to a Chair and posted her on SC (Snapchat),’ Brooks said in a Facebook post.

‘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 fail to inform us of the situation. 

‘Also failed to document a incident of a rock being lodged in my baby ear that almost damaged her eardrum….’

Brooks had a hard time seeing the image of her child taped there.

‘I’m looking at a picture of my daughter duct-taped to a chair, and her facial expression, I can just imagine how she felt,’ Brooks said to KFVS. 

The daycare hasn't responded to any attempts to be contacted regarding allegations

The mother asserted that she thought the photo was taken while her daughter was a student at the daycare. 

But the parents are determined to find out why it happened.

‘I won’t be happy until that daycare is shut down, for one, and whoever did this to my child, whoever it is, either – it’s not an either – she needs to be in jail,’ Evans said. 

The daycare hasn’t responded to any attempts to be contacted regarding allegations. 

But the girl’s parents are adamant on something happening soon. 

‘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,’ Evans said. 

And the girl’s mother has a message for other parents. 

‘Double check on these daycares before you go to them because I thought my daughter was safe,’ she said.
