Pa. day care worker who allegedly told children to curse charged

A Pennsylvania day care worker who allegedly encouraged children to utter obscenities has been charged with corruption of minors, prosecutors announced Thursday.

Rashanna Gyles, 24, is accused of telling kids between the ages of 3 and 4 to say curse words on camera at the Creative Minds Daycare Academy in Allentown.

Video of the incident surfaced in October. Jhanee Ivy posted the recording to Facebook and said an employee at the day care sent it to her.

In the video, young children repeat the phrases "ugly b****" and "f***ing b****" as the person behind the camera continuously asks, "What are they?"

The video can be viewed below. (Disclaimer: Video contains explicit language.):

The Lehigh County District Attorney's Office alleges Gyles was behind the camera asking the children to repeat the obscene phrases over and over.

According to The Morning Call, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services revoked Creative Minds' license after the incident because of "gross incompetence and negligence" in operating the day care.

Gyles will be arraigned later Thursday, prosecutors said.
