Pros

Everyone cares and loves the children who come here.

Cons

Communication between management and staff needs improvement. There is definite favoritism going on as well. Staff to parent communication needs improvement in some classrooms.

    Pros

    working during the day and off weekends

    Cons

    could have cared less about the children. . . Also never had new materials for the kids and when asked never got them. Was all about showing parents how nice it was but when they would walk out the doors very different story

    Pros

    The relationships with the children; making a difference in kids' life; making parents feel good by building a rapport with them so they know they can trust you with their child all day. Also the rewards of teaching, watching your students grow as individuals.

    Cons

    Little to no on-the-job training-- mostly just expected to read stacks upon stacks of paper packets of information to learn the job, then sink or swim when getting out on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your staff. They are who keep the school running. If some one is incredibly ill, or has another major stressor going on in their life, show some human compassion for them. Don't just pretend like you care when all you are really concerned with is when they will be able to work again.

    Don't treat your staff-- who are all competent, grown adults-- like they are children. Don't insult them and/or literally yell at them because it is very ineffective management and no one will ever want to work for you.
