Lawsuit filed over daycare duct-tape claims in Willow Park
Parents of a toddler who was allegedly duct-taped to his nap mat by a Willow Park day-care center co-owner filed suit Tuesday against the Heart2Heart Montessori Academy.
Kristi and Brad Galbraith allege in a lawsuit filed in Parker County that Heart2Heart was negligent in properly carrying out its responsibilities and supervising employees, resulting in injury and pain to their 21/2-year-old son.
The allegations surfaced June 17 after an employee, Hannah Tidwell, called Kristi Galbraith advising her that her son and another boy had been forcefully secured by duct tape to their napping mats by one of the facility’s owners, Pamela Decker.
