Daycare allegedly locks up with child still inside

ORLANDO (WOFL) -

Orange County deputies say a 4-year-old boy was locked inside a Waterford Lakes daycare after employees locked up for the night.  The child was found alone at least three hours later.

It happened Friday night at the "Kids R Kids" Learning Academy on Woodbury Road.

Daycare officials say the daycare closed at 10:30 p.m. for a parents’ night out promotion.

Deputies said the boy’s mother arrived an hour after closing to pick up the child, only to find the facility empty and locked with her son inside.

The daycare’s alarm company and firefighters were called. Once inside, the boy was found sleeping.

Daycare workers said four employees were working at the time the facility was locked up for the night.

Charges could be pending for whoever is found responsible.

The Department of Children and Families is also investigating.
