The “Crear” Nursery home in Argentina has been closed while authorities investigate the case of a 3 year-old who was sent home with a bill for $35 pinned to her smock.

A woman saw the girl and her older brother board a public bus, and outraged snapped a picture, that she hung on her Facebook.

“The little girl boarded the bus and sat across from me. The invoice pinned on her smock caught my attention. I thought it was such a humiliating way of notifying her parents, of exposing her, that I snapped a picture,” the woman said.

The Municipal Sub-secretary of Consumer Protection of Salta, Maria Pía Saravia went to the nursery home on Tuesday morning and closed it down pending a full investigation.
