A video of a woman fat-shaming a child at a Philadelphia day care centre has shocked social media users.

Video from inside the Amazing Kidz Academy in Philadelphia shows the child wandering around as an unknown woman films her, Yahoo Lifestyle reports.

"If you don't get out of my face, with your big ass, what they need to do is stop feeding you," the woman said from behind the camera.

The baby has been identified as the niece of Jennifer Ortiz, who was sent the video on Instagram in late December.

Amazing Kidz Academy said in a statement the video was not made by a staff member.

"We intend to reach out to the family of the child and try to fix this matter so that they know how much we love and value all our little ones," centre owner Lisa Smith said.

One of the parents from the facility has admitted she filmed the child, and said she didn't intend for the footage to make its way to social media.

"I really would like to apologise to her mother more because I am a mother, at the end of the day, and I couldn't imagine anyone doing this to my son," she said.

But that's not enough for Ms Ortiz, who unleashed at the woman on Facebook.

"This don't make no sense nothing she saying matters you recorded an innocent baby something definitely needs to be done [sic]," Ms Ortiz wrote on Facebook.

"Amazing Kidsz Academy day care don't have much to say but once again the recording came out of your building."
