I worked at Rainbow Montessori C.D.C. full-time
A couple great teachers work here. School will finance your schooling for a Montessori Teaching Credential once you sign their contract. Central location in Sunnyvale and plenty of parking although it can get congested. Owner is also on campus frequently so you can approach her.
Horrible teacher facilities. The preschool break room is shared with the children's lunch room so you can imagine how quiet and peaceful it must be. Owner only supplies spoons, forks, cups, and water in office. No coffee/no snacks. Old furniture, tables, and chairs and equipment. Very hard to get vacation days or early leaves in case of emergency/illness. Plus, there are some terrible unloving children Teachers that work here, but they are NOT FIRED?! No one here ever gets fired although there are many that should be because of the manner in which they interact with the children.
Advice to Management
Take care of your teachers. Small inexpensive perks like some coffee in the break rooms and instant tea and honey for relaxation. Create unity in the faculty, and value the good teachers. Get rid of the not so great teachers. You'll improve your ratings on Yelp and more customers will come once children are treated right here.
