VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - Valdosta Police say that they are investigating a local daycare after they received a report of inappropriate physical conduct between two small children.

The announcement comes after the mother of one of the children involved posted the story to her Facebook. The post was shared over 800 times.

The mother wrote in the post that she alerted the daycare director but was met with "push back and complete lack of professionalism and respect."

The Valdosta Police Department said that they received the report on April 14th and that they notified the Department of Family and Children Services, who said that they were also investigating.

“This case involved allegations of improper touching and comments by two four-year old children. The childcare facility where the incident occurred have been fully cooperative and as with any other incident of this type, the case is being properly investigated, regardless of the information posted on social media”, stated Lieutenant Adam Bembry.
