(Scroll down for video) A daycare is under investigation after a photo circulated on the Internet, showing a sleeping child duct taped to the floor, police in Texas said.

The incident occurred at the Heart 2 Heart Montessori Academy in Willow Park.

The photo sparked concern and anger among parents. The photo in question was publicized by a former employee of the daycare.

The child apparently was not hurt, but it seems that the photo has damaged the reputation of the daycare. “Staff members have the best interests of children and parents in mind, and this is our highest priority. The daycare has a history of exemplary performance. We are cooperating fully with any investigation,” the daycare said in a statement.

Heart 2 Heart was inspected five times and was cited once. The citation involved a worker who failed to update their fingerprints with the FBI.
