    Pros

    Company is focused on children and staff to an extent that you don't usually see. They truly care about their people and the families served.

    Nothing to report at this time.

    I have been working at Child Development (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is supportive. They provide a really big training conference once a year, take a whole day and you learn a lot from it.

    Cons

    Pay is low, especially when you live in Bay Area. Hardly have any saving with that income. Staff is low and turn over high so no consistency in the classroom.

    Advice to Management

    Always short in staff and sfaff turn-over is so high. Within 1 year, I have seen teachers come and go a lot, changed from classroom to classroom.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Center staff committed to working with children and families; Developmental Profile assessments twice per year ensured the needs of the children in the program were being met.

    Cons

    It seemed management was more interested in putting staff down rather than building them up and giving them the tools to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at yourselves and how you treat others. No adult should be made to feel like they are in middle school again.
