Paramedics were called to the Little Gems Childcare and Early Learning Centre in Maryborough, on Queensland’s Fraser Coast region, on Wednesday with reports the toddler had died.
Queensland Police stressed to Daily Mail Australia the death is not being treated as suspicious, though investigations are still underway.
One mother who arrived at the centre to pick up her daughter about 5.30pm on Wednesday told the Courier Mail tearful staff inside were ‘absolutely beside themselves’ as they came to terms with the tragedy.
‘I can’t help but feel tremendous pain for the parents,’ she said.
‘Imagine dropping your child off to daycare and never seeing them again.’
