I have been working at Children Of America full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There are no "best reasons" to work at the Children of America in Ellicott City, Maryland

Cons

Inexperienced, self-absorbed center management; concerned about shaving work hours and saving money for upper management. The children ARE NOT the primary concern as they should be in a child CARE center. The "care" is all about cash

Advice to Management

Very simply -- spend some actual time in classrooms; like an Undercover Boss. See what your teachers go through in an average week and help standardize care across classrooms. A standard operating procedure manual would make everyone's work so much easier with uniform care across the classrooms. Each classroom has a different style, depending on the teacher's abilities. Everyone in our center is still using their cell phones on a regular basis, including to set up and maintain outside babysitting for the families in their classrooms. Conflict of interest? You bet!
