    Pros

    My director was the nicest person and so was the assistant director. One of the head teachers took me under her wing and gave me so much confidence. The teachers all worked together and made that place a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Wish the pay was greater, but for the time it was pretty good.

    Pros

    The company offers a competitive benefits package to employees. Hard work is rewarded and there is a yearly merit raise. I have never had any issues asking for time off as long as I give my supervisor some advance notice. My coworkers are easy to work with and I have made many friends here. Working with children allows me to help give back to my community.

    Cons

    Some of the facilities are better than others.

    Value the hard working school level people who enable you to have jobs!
