I worked at KidsPeace full-time for more than a year

Pros

Location is beautiful and staff are amazing for the most part. The potential is there for a great therapeutic environment.

Cons

The staff are mistreated by company and are not valued or rewarded, this thwarts any true therapeutic success for the children.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat the staff as you want the children to be treated, there will be a trickle down effect and the staff will stay much longer. Less money will be spent on training and the overall cost to run the facility will go down.

    Get's a bad wrap and many do not see the good done for the children in the community and at large

    I have been working at KidsPeace part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Growth opportunity, good training, some staff are very committed to enhancing their work environment and are very professional. I have had good managers and colleagues that work together very well.

    Cons

    There is no perfect place so I guess it depends on the reviewer. the only con I see is that sometimes they have to rely on individuals who are transient and not truly trying to become professionals in the field that they are working. this is always risky especially when working with children.
