    I was just quarantined due to exposure to a child with Covid and was informed that I no longer have hazard pay and so now will not be paid for the 10 days I am quarantined but I can file unemployment that only pays 60% of my income! As a single mom of 3 kids I now have exposure to me and my kids and now without pay for me and my children!! If I don’t need hazard pay why am I made to wear a mask everyday and why must I quarantine if Covid is no longer something that is a hazard then how come I am being quarantine how come I can’t go back to work and just infect everybody because apparently we get to infect everybody in my family and then leave me and my family stranded with no way to survive!

  • Concerned Friend says:

    Childcare Network #124 on Grays Rd in Chattanooga is a JOKE. As a close friend of an employee who has been there for 3 years, I can honestly tell you that it has been through **5** directors within the past 3 years. I can’t believe my friend has suffered through as long as she has. I could write a novel on that place and how stupid it is. They are all about money and that’s it. They make an attempt to force curriculum to younger kids who can barely walk yet, but important things like an older kid lashing out DAILY and destroying the office and an unused classroom is totally ok and he is allowed to keep coming back….because his parents pay out of pocket. Kids with obvious green runny noses are allowed to stay but let an employee feel bad and have to miss a day then they are told to bring a doctors note. Well first of all, that’s impossible because the insurance there is not worth having and most don’t have it, AND the majority of people are not going to sit in a nasty emergency room right now with COVID-19 going around, just for a 99 temp and upset stomach. Be real!! They are so stupid yet think they are so wonderful.

  • Errica Turner says:

    Director at 115 has the biggest attitude towards all employees she doesnt favor. A lot of favoritism going on amoung employees and management. I was threatened by another employee & director did nothing but say “she didnt want to hear it”, causing me to quit my job out of fear of bodily harm and retaliation. Corporate office refuses to return calls on the matter.

  • Disgusted says:

    Childcare Network #24 in Chattanooga, TN has to be the worst place EVER. I wouldn’t let those people take care of my dog. State rules have been so lapsed during the pandemic that anything goes. Ratios mean nothing and social distancing is a joke, especially when there’s 20 kids and 2 teachers piled in one room all day. I have no idea how they remain operational.

  • A Concerned Parent says:

    Wow…the comments below really show how little that chain of centers cares about their employees. I’ve always heard negative things about them, for a while they were in the news seems like every other day for major violations…even a tragic infant death at one of the TN centers. I know some employees that work and have worked for them in the past and they are amazing people and really care for the kids. It just doesn’t take long for them to see how they really are, and true colors do show in a pandemic. Taking away the one minor benefit of earned time that those employees work for is just pathetic. Supposedly giving it back but having to argue to get it is just uncalled for. The few employees that are leaving their own families daily because they have to work and are considered essential” should be getting raises or something! Heck I’m sure they’d appreciate a free lunch. Childcare Network…step up to the plate and do better. Children and employees are what make you or break you! Treat them fairly, go above and beyond what is expected. Surprise a needy employee…donate money or food or even a Walmart gift card. Pay a small bill for them. It’s not hard to be nice, especially now.

      Here in Texas I just Got quarantined and found out that just this paycheck that I get tomorrow no longer has my hazard pay and I’m not getting paid for the 10 days that I’m out for quarantine and I had three kids I’m a single mother and now I have no way to tend to my family because I will not be getting paid for the 10 days I’m out their response to me was filed for unemployment. We had no idea they were even taking our hazard pay away I was told I was gonna be quarantined and when I asked about the hazard pay they said nope we took that away so now you don’t get paid what am I supposed to do now with me and my three kids I can’t go nowhere else I’ve been quarantine and now my family is exposed and just left with absolutely nothing!

  • Highly concerned says:

    One more thing…the center mentioned below hasn’t had any Lysol for weeks. Nothing but door handles and things at the front entrance have been cleaned and sanitized (for appearance sake). Bathroom is nasty, garbage is always piled up. Toddler room is absolutely disgusting, dried food on the tables and chairs. Dried milk on some of the child-size furniture. The new worker in there with the bad dye job would rather gossip and run to the office every 5 minutes than clean. I’m sure their bedding hasn’t been washed in weeks. Parents, open your eyes. Keep your kids HOME.

  • Stressed and Angry says:

    This is a follow-up on my rant below regarding corporate’s decision to “suspend” our paid time off or “wellness time” as they call it during this pandemic. After some serious complaining from myself and other employees, corporate decided to “lift the suspension” and let us use the time we have already earned. I missed a couple of days due to a horrific intestinal virus and was told that I had “earned/sick time” I could use to cover those days. I was totally relieved because I have bills already behind. My director added the hours to my time and that same night I got a text with an attachment from corporate saying that our earned time was being suspended and we could not use any. I was very upset, as well as other employees who were dependent on the hours. My director, after finding out the suspension was lifted, called our district manager and literally had to argue with her during TWO phone calls to have her add the hours back to my time! I am a full time employee who has been employed for Childcare Network for 3 years and they raised *hell* about giving me 16 hours that I had EARNED. Ridiculous. If you have read this far, please read a little further!! The Childcare Network in Chattanooga on Grays Road (or Grays Drive) SUCKS. After the governor of TN gave the order to close all non-essential businesses and to have everyone shelter in place, corporate decides that it doesn’t APPLY to the center on Grays Rd/Dr!! Every other center HAS to require BOTH parents to provide a letter stating that their jobs are essential, otherwise they cannot leave their kid. Corporate is not requiring this at this particular center…not until Friday April 10. The order is only until the 13th or 14th so what is the point!!! They are taking kids no matter what!! Putting all the staff who are coming to work everyday and other children at risk to be infected. Childcare Network does NOT care about their employees. It’s all about money and greed. Even the director says so. And that center is on director #4 within 3 years. That says a lot right there. KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME!!! NO ONE IS IMMUNE TO COVID-19!! USE COMMON SENSE, PEOPLE ARE GETTING THIS VIRUS AND DYING! As a long time childcare provider (30 years!!!), I have seen it all over the years. I AM PLEADING WITH PARENTS, PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILD AWAY FROM THAT CENTER. They are running on a skeleton crew right now and most of those are young and very untrained on safe practices. TRUST ME!! There are much better centers out there, most of which have used common sense and closed by now! WHY? Because they CARE about their staff and enrolled children!!

  • Do Better says:

    Threatening to take a teachers pay away if they don’t come in during this pandemic? Not a good look. The students aren’t even there. What is the point? You’re endangering the health of your employees for what? More money in your pockets. Outrageous. Disgusting. Unfortunate.

  • Stressed and Angry says:

    I am an employee of Childcare Network in Chattanooga, TN. I have been for the past several years. I am livid, while at the same time saddened, that corporate has decided to take away our EARNED PAID TIME OFF. 10 days of sick time, vacation time, whatever we needed it for time. Right during this pandemic, right as we are considered by corporate to be “essential” and needed by the community to keep their children. We have families at home also, we have children with special needs, we have elderly relatives we need to look after. Yet we still get up every morning and come to work because we are “essential”. So this means if we catch the virus, which is a matter of time caring for these little ones, we have no paid time to use to pay our bills. Corporate can sit at home and run the show from the luxury of their home offices and/or loveseat, yet here are those “essential” employees who have to go to work everyday with no paid vacation time to look forward to, and no sick time to have in an emergency. It is WRONG, it is UNFAIR, it is PURE GREED. I’m sure there are a couple of news channels who would love to hear about this in the midst of the crisis going on. Most DECENT employers and companies are paying MORE and offering MORE benefits/money/food to their employees who have to work. Even Haz-Mat pay!! It just proves once again that Childcare Network does not take care of their employees, all they care about is filling up their own pockets.

  • Concerned says:

    A lot of day care centers are closing all around because of the coronavirus. What is your plan because you sent out a “final” letter (confusing) saying you needed your employees to continue to work because the community needed the teachers? What about your teachers being exposed everyday? We don’t know where these parents have been and it’s concerning. I think about this everyday. The kids coming to your centers are (in my opinion) the silent carriers and it’s a known fact now that they can get this horrible virus. We, the teachers are doing our best, but we are very stressed, worrying about our own families. We have been sending children home left and right for fevers, diarrhea and runny noses. They are out for two weeks because the doctors are not releasing these kids to come back. What happens next? At what cost will you keep allowing the children to come to your centers, exposing your employees everyday? And everyday, businesses are shutting their doors and we continue to work. Here’s a thought, why not give the ones working still an “incentive” for sticking it out during this crisis, or is that too much to ask? I am sure that a lot of you at corporate have resorted home to work and to self-quarantine. Think about it. Just because you sit higher on the scale than us teachers, doesn’t make you any better of a person than me. All I know is my director, assistant director and my district manager are working their tales off as well. This pandemic is not going to get better if we don’t all self-quarantine. The numbers are rising every minute. These precautions are a must. It’s going to get worse before it gets better, so why not make it a little easier for all of us.

  • Bridget says:

    Short version: The new Management at the Cedar Hill, TX location (Beltline Rd.) and your Corporate Employees are increasing tuition without providing sufficient notice and threatening to charge lates fees.

    This is not a good business practice and not a way to retain customers.

    Long version: The new uncompassionate management and inconsiderate representatives from Childcare Network Corporate Office have taken over. The week (2 weeks ago) of their takeover the parents were given a tuition agreement to sign as we dropped our children off in the morning. And for some of us their was a discrepancy with the tuition rate. I brought this to the new Director’s attention and advised I her I did not pay the amount listed on the agreement. Also, I was not signing the agreement without reading it.

    Fast forward a week to the current week.. while picking up my child the Corporate employee Paula informed me I had a balance on my account. She asks “do you want to know why”. Yes because I should not have a balance. Then she informs me it is because the tuition increased. I told her “Aren’t you required to give a notice of an increase?” Paula tells me an email was sent regarding the increase 3 weeks ago. I informed her I did not receive an email and asked to verify if they had my email on file. She said their system was down but write my email address on the post it note. As of today, I have not received a written notice of the increase nor have I received an email previously regarding an increase in the tuition rate. And I have never received a notice or email stating I had a balance past due on my account ever.

    This evening I was called into the office again because I now have a balance on my account due to the “tuition increase” applied to my account this week. I was informed if I did not pay it they would charge me a late fee. Well I’m not paying it!

    I’m disliking the new Management and Corporate Representatives because of their lack of sufficient notice of the tuition increase and threat of late fees.

    Childcare Network # 37 is honestly the mostunorganized, unprofessional, unprepared center in my life! This has to the most trashiest , ignorant, unprofessional group of women I ever seen in my life it is like they had zero standards at all. One staff member was drinking a Circle K drink and eating cheese crackers. Then she was giving children cheese crackers at nap time and giving her daughter a sip of your drink. The director was letting her granddaughter who was in my classroom walk into any classroom she wants and go into her office eating tater tots when the board in the classroom states no outside food allowed. I witnessed a staff member use a clear bin and hit a child on leg with it to get there attention and at least two staff members yell at children and the director pull one of children by the arm.

    The classroom was unprepared, the art supplies were very limited with barely any crayons , dried out markers, torn books, no construction paper, no supplies for circle time and the space was too small for fifteen preschool children. There were no enhancements in the classroom to promote learning. All this place is a babysitting service not a child development.The bathroom have doors on them , the children are able to close to doors to use the bathroom. It was not until I brought this to the director’s attention that she said I can control that by opening the door; however, that should have been related to during my in-processing. I also was not informed that in my class I had a child with special needs. This particular child is not verbal at all . During center time this child was throwing blocks at over the place and throwing them at children. One of staff members told me that is what he does in the room but again this should have come from management. I transitioned my class into a classroom, the staff in the classroom get up and just walk out. I do not know any of the children at all. I was given children with special needs and no one told me this information nor was I told that I had several children that do to Head Start in the morning and come in the afternoon.

    One of the parents or I think the director’s daughter went into the kitchen and took milk home. I do not think it is legal by the state by USDA standards. I do not see how this center is STAR rated.

  • NikkiD says:

    Childcare Network #61 NC is the worst daycare to enroll a child. The have special needs care kids there with no experienced teachers, undiagnosed children there with behavior problems, and a biased and unprofessional management staff.

  • Concerned Parent says:

    Alison Hirko at the Jacksonville nc Henderson dr daycare has brought her own kids into the daycare all Christmas week for the employees to watch…and kept all employees there this week even with very little kids this week being there…she voiced that her teachers were bitches…and she’s ignored the concerns of parents and teachers and students….she is very unprofessional in her attitude towards her staff…i question wether she’s paying for her kids to be watched in the facility…i am very concerned parent and this needs to be addressed please. Please…this is an anonymous complaint so leave this email and my name private…i am a very private individual and i take it serious. I’ve copied this complaint and my information is not to get into the hands of anyone outside of corporate office in Georgia. Thank you
