Regulators are investigating a North Texas Montessori academy over a photo showing a boy wrapped in a blanket and secured to a napping mat by duct tape.
WFAA-TV reports Child Protective Services is reviewing Heart2Heart Montessori Academy in Willow Park. The station reports the photo circulating among parents was recently snapped by a now-former worker.
Academy officials say the child was not hurt, they reported the incident to CPS and are cooperating in the investigation. Some parents met Thursday night with academy officials in Willow Park, about 15 miles west of Fort Worth.
A statement Friday from the academy says directors and staff hold the best interest of the children and parents as the highest priority. The statement also says the school has an "exemplary" performance history.
