A Chattanooga daycare is under a state safety plan after officials say an employee was fired, accused of biting a child.

The Tennessee Department of Human Services says that on November 16th, an investigation was started into a complaint at the Childcare Network on Gunbarrel Road.

According to the report, an employee witnessed an educator bite a child. The educator was then fired.

A spokesperson for the department says the daycare is under a safety plan, and the person is no longer allowed on property.

The Department of Children's services is investigating this incident.

The state website also says an investigation was started in June into another complaint. According to the website, the daycare fired an employee accused of leaving a 2-year-old child unsupervised. Teachers were retrained on supervision.

Another complaint in July said an educator was accused of telling a child to "physically retaliate" against another child. Spanking and all types of corporal punishment are prohibited, according to the state.

We tried to call the daycare Thursday for comment, but they did not answer.
