    I worked at JCC of Northern Virginia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The supervisors were very helpful and understanding. They support their teachers and listen to parents' concerns. The environment is friendly and clean. The school is well organized. Lots of fun activities to participate in for the school especially during the summer. Some flexible hours.

    Cons

    Have to some times deal with the politics of the community center. Have to adhere to kosher rules (thought it best to mention though it isn't hard to follow, just don't bring meat for breakfast or lunch unless you know it is kosher, cheese is fine)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

  2.  

    Compared to other JCCs in which I have worked, NOVA Early Childhood Department is disorganized, cliquey, & under-funded.

    I have been working at JCC of Northern Virginia full-time

    Pros

    It's easy to get hired.

    Cons

    Take advantage of employees. Not child focused, money focused. Will hire anyone (and many of the people they do hire are unfit to be around children).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure and remodel the preschool. Visit the Weinstein JCC if you want an excellent model of what the NOVA JCC could be. Mostly, hire people who care about children, not recent high school grads who are just desperate for beer and cigarette money. If that means enrollment of children has to go down, so be it.
