A Pennsylvania daycare says it will fight to remain open after one of its workers was charged with coaxing preschoolers to use obscenities on camera.

Elizabeth Saleb is president of Creative Minds Daycare Academy in Allentown. She tells The Associated Press the worker was fired immediately after the incident came to light in October. She says she will appeal a decision by state regulators to revoke the day care's license.

Twenty-four-year-old Rashanna Gyles was charged Thursday with a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors. Prosecutors say Gyles had a half-dozen children direct obscenities toward another child. Authorities say she made videos of them and sent one to a friend, who called police.

Saleb calls it an "isolated incident" and says the facility remains filled and has a waiting list.
