-Open communication.

-Transition of students from room to room.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand numbers are always an issue, but we can't tell families one thing and then do the complete opposite. (ie. telling a family a student can't move up to the next room because of age and then doing it anyway.)

Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Kindercare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The kids are great. If you want to make a difference in a child life, good experience doing that.

    Cons

    Breaks are rare, communication is non existent, and overall morale of workers is very low. Our staff was told not to contact bls and hr because they wouldn't help us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the staff working with the children and CARE about there input. They know their job better than anyone else.
