I've worked at much better preschools.

Pros

Understanding when personal days are needed. Benefits pretty good. Hourly rate/salary comparable to other preschools. Parents are wonderful and caring.

Cons

Clicks within employees. Management doesn't try to solve problems. Too many children in one class. Any suggestions are not welcome.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start listening to the FEW educated staff you have. Learn how to become critical thinkers. Implement neccessary developmental training for ALL employees.

    Pros

    Excellent peers, caring and responsive management, clean building, accredited school, high standards all the way around, management is very open to suggestion and has the motto 'I can't fix it if I don't know that its broken', very little drama and very little gossip

    Cons

    Working with children is hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. I like the fact that everyone pitches in to help out when needed.

    Great owners, but compensation poor for newer employees and no room for growth

    Pros

    Well known preschool, majority of the parents are nice, pretty clean, management usually gives praise for job well done and notices things teachers do to make their rooms better, nice coworkers, nice owners/managers

    Cons

    The new employees have late hours, many people are underpaid for the amount of work they complete in comparison to the amount parents pay for tuition, some co-workers are underachievers and are burnt out and they are still highly compensated just because they have been with the school for a number of years. College degrees hold no leverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees who actually do their jobs well and make the workload on teachers manageable. Fire people who have low work ethic even if they have been with the company for a number of years. Stop using substitutes for miscellaneous tasks and put them in the rooms to help teachers to prevent burn out. Hire a cleaning company. The cleaning man does absolutely nothing! He is worthless and they still pay him to do nothing. He doesn't mop, sweep, or vacuum ever! Management makes subs scrub bathrooms, the kitchen, and dishes.
