Pros

Families and children were great to work with.

Cons

Very profit oriented and constant pressure to meet financial goals.

Advice to Management

Support your Center Directors! Upper management not always supportive of Center Directors day to day. Long term CD and had an issue with a staff member and upper management did not support me.

    Pros

    -Great team of coworkers. -Managers are constantly available for help as needed. -Open communication. -Consistent (mostly) schedule.

    Cons

    -Labor hours. -Transition of students from room to room.

    Advice to Management

    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.)

    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 Management

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