At one point she looms over one of the petrified kids and asks “are you being bad?” to which the child tearfully replies “no” and shakes his head.
Telling the terrified tot that they “better be” she then moves to intimidate another kid.
A statement posted to the official Lil’ Blessings Childcare and Learning Centre’s official Facebook page said that the four staff members involved have been fired and the Mississippi State Department of Health has been notified by the director.
Sheila Sanders, who began working at the daycare in 1987 and has owned it for the past 20 years, told the Monroe Journal that one video clip was filmed last month, and a second was filmed on Tuesday (October 4).
However, she added, she wasn't aware of either of the videos until Wednesday afternoon.

She said the shocking behaviour was shown in the clip was completely unacceptable
"I contacted my licensure, and she has gotten involved," she said. "The people that did those acts are no longer with us. They were fired. I wasn’t here at the time and wasn’t aware they were doing that. I don’t condone that and never have. I just want to say it’s been taken care of."
While parents have described the staff members’ actions as “hideous”, most of them were supportive of Ms Sanders.

“I know 100% that Ms. Sheila, the owner and director, was not aware of this situation that was going on and as soon as she found out, all parties were terminated immediately," said Kimberly Smith, whose child can be seen in one of the videos.
She added: ”The witch hunt that has been going on for her and the other ones still here, it really needs to stop. Was the situation that did happen horrible? Absolutely. But should this daycare be shut down and others be villainsed that are still here, absolutely not”.
Another parent, Chas Allen, added: “A lot of people are saying, ‘Shut it down. Shut it down,’ but I don’t think they’re thinking about the implications that that might have. If there was a daycare next door, I would still bring my kids here."
