Daycare Workers Take To Instagram To Mock The Children In Their Care instagramIcon 200x200 pngTwo daycare workers were fired after posting pictures of children to Instagram and making fun of them. I can’t imagine what would make a person think it was okay to photograph someone else’s child, make a meme out of that photograph and post it to their personal social media account. Especially when the meme is a joke at the child’s expense – and they are being paid to care for that child.

Melissa Jordan saw a photo of her 3-year-old son, Ethan posted online. It had obviously been taken at his daycare, A Heavenly Haven Learning Center in Newport News, Virginia. He was sitting in a highchair, looking totally miserable. The daycare worker who took the photo, made a meme out of it that said, “I’m sick of this shit!!!” and posted it to Instagram. Another daycare worker – one of her Instagram followers – left a comment under the photo that said, “He really look like that’s exactly wat he is thinking cuz sure can’t talk. Lmao.” The 3-year-old has some delayed speech development. Yes, that is just hilarious. This is infuriating.

The woman has used a child in her charge as the brunt of a joke on Instagram before. She posted a picture of a child smiling and compared his teeth to those of the character of “Mater” in the movie “Cars” – a character with exaggerated buck teeth. This woman is really a peach.

Both her and her co-worker were fired for violating the daycare’s policy of not allowing cameras into the classrooms. I’m less concerned that they violated a policy and more concerned that they look at a child in their care with speech problems as the brunt of a joke. There is an alarming disconnect and lack of care and compassion here. I would never trust either of these women with my children.

At least these people were too stupid to realize what they put on the Internet is not private – and they no longer have jobs caring for children they obviously care so little about.
