Daycare Worker ‘Duct Taped a Child To His Mat During Naptime’

A day care worker is facing abuse charges after she duct taped a child to a mat so he wouldn’t move during a nap time.

Alicia Lyons was seen by another worker using the strong adhesive tape to pin the 18-month-old boy to the ground.

The 20-year-old admitted to the incident after initially denying being involved while working at the Mustard Seeds Daycare Centre in Ludlow, Kentucky.

Bosses at the daycare centre immediately sacked Lyons after they reported the incident to police.

Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders said the incident took place several months ago.

The child, who has not been named, did not suffer any injuries.

Another worker witnesses Lyons using the tape to hold down the child but waited several months before telling the boy’s mother what happened.

The mother informed staff what she had been told and the daycare centre called in Lyons, who had passed all the necessary background checks, to ask her if the allegations were true.

Lyons denied being involved, but later changed her story and confessed to the abuse.

A statement issued by the Day Care centre described the incident as ‘unfortunate, yet isolated.’

They now plan to install CCTV cameras at all three of their locations in Kentucky.
