Daycare workers fired after sharing mean photos of their charges on social media
Maybe if you want to keep our job at a daycare you shouldn't post instagrams calling the kids you watch "little bitches."
When a mother saw a picture of her son with a mocking caption online, she was both heartbroken and furious. First, she called the daycare center, whose employees posted and commented on the picture, and then she called WAVY.com
"I was concerned about my child, and I was hurt because I trusted them with Ethan," said Ethan's mother, Melissa Jordan on Thursday.
Ethan Jordan is nearly three years old. He’s full of energy, loves to run, and is quick with a smile, which makes the pictures of a sad Ethan sitting in a highchair at the daycare very uncharacteristic.
"I don't know why he is sitting in a highchair at three-years-old. I don't know how long he's been in the highchair. He looks so pathetic and miserable. He looks so defeated in that picture," Jordan said.
The picture taken last week of Ethan at A Heavenly Haven Learning Center 2 in Newport News was posted on Instagram by employee Jena Ferrel. On Instagram, she was known as “mz_oneofakind" at the time the picture was posted.
"I was disgusted, and my feelings were hurt because they are making fun of Ethan because he isn't able to talk. They are making a joke out of him," Jordan said.
