    Pros

    The staff becomes like family. You bond with the children. Lucky enough to have gotten an AD that cares about the staff.

    Cons

    There is no real teaching taking place. I had my child enrolled and saw there was. Nothing but playing going on all day.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the staff more, whether it be in bonuses or raises (that were taken away this year but administration still recieved), holiday parties, paid lunch hours, give directors gift cards to begin a teacher of the month program, install more laid holidays into the yearly calendar... Big One FREE CHILDCARE FOR EMPLOYEES SINCE MOST PEOPLE ARE THERE ALLLLLL DAY.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Brightside Academy (Bronx, NY).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and then was given a face to face interview. I was hired on the spot, given requirements I needed to fulfill before beginning. I went online and was able to get the certification for free. I paid 127$ yo be fingerprinted by an agency, which is not the DOE.
