I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (Less than a year)
I love my children! That's the best part of working at a daycare is caring and creating a relationship with each child and their parents.
Childcare network took over the daycare I originally worked for. They have no knowledge about children and neither does the owner of the company. We now wear aprons, and white collared shirts. I mean really? White shirts around children, and why aprons? We aren't cooks! There's not even pockets on the aprons and we have magnetic name tags the kids pull off easily! We can't wear jackets in the winter because they think we will sneak our phones in them, but we can order their "winter" apparel for work... It also doesn't help management doesn't know what is going on and I got to go to an almost 3 hour meeting I didn't get paid for to hear "I don't know" about every question asked to the new company! Benefits suck, you have to pay thosaunds of dollars before getting healthcare. Oh, no annual raises, you only get a raise when they want to give one! Also, I don't even have a set schedule anymore, I get to work early and close every single day while people who get there after me get to leave early. 75% of the staff is now leaving and new hires come in every day.
Advice to Management
Actually care about safety of the children, money is not everything. The employees can get away with doing unruly things to the children (grabbing, not changing diapers, spanking, etc.), but get written up for having to go to the hospital and not reaching anybody, or having on 'too tight of jeans' or not wearing your apron. Communicate better with staff and parents. Tired of asking about the new company and my schedule and having no answers. Stick with schedules of employees, not that hard.. Don't tell us to come into work when we have a fever but you guys leave all the time. Fire people who hit the children and people who say "I hate being here" and complaign the children are "horrible" and hire people who want to be here. There's alot more I could say but I'd write a book by the time I'm done.
