Caddo Kid Academy staff have been charged with felonies in connection with an incident in Februrary.

In Caddo Mills, three people have been arrested and charged with felonies allegedly committed while working at a local day care. Caddo Mills police say they began investigating a case in February involving Caddo Kids Academy. Caddo Mills Police Chief Kimbre Collier said “A parent informed officers that she reviewed a video of her child being abused by a daycare worker.”

The Greenville Herald Banner reports police responded and the child was taken to a local hospital for an assessment. On Feb. 11, police arrested Courtney Lyn Gaines, 26, on a charge of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

Caddo Mills police say an investigation later led to the arrests of Olivia Michelle Grant, 31, of Caddo Mills and Amy Gracy Baker, 48, of Caddo Mills, who were each charged with one count of abandoning or endangering a child. Baker is the owner of Caddo Kids Academy. The charges are second-degree felonies. The Herald Banner reports Gains and Baker have been released on bond and Grant remains at the Hunt County Detention Center without bond. Caddo Mills police say no further information about the case will be released immediately.
