New Information in Belton Daycare Closure

Posted: Updated:

BELTON, TX - (KCEN) – A sign posted on the door at Milestones Educational Child Care on Friday informed parents and employees that the center would be open from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Friday evening and from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday for them to pick up their personal belongings.

Assistant Director Amy Simon confirmed to us by phone that owner Theresa Bardwell has filed for bankruptcy.

However, when we called the bankruptcy office at the federal courthouse in Waco Friday, no bankruptcy records had been filed by Bardwell.

Despite being left completely in the dark about the center's closure, employees are now learning they will not be getting paid for the final two weeks that they had worked.

Some employees' say they thought very highly of Bardwell before this happened, while others say she gave them a bad impression from the beginning.

"She acted like she knew all about what was going on but at the same time she was asking a lot of questions to the director," said former employee Danielle Reicek.

"I thought she had a really good heart, you know, she seemed so sincere and she seemed like she truly cared about everyone, and then this," said former employee Jennifer Vasek. "It's just kind of like, ‘wow, you admired someone that was fake."

Employees have been advised to file a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission immediately.
