    There was a big turnout rate for teachers leaving. They hire subs that do not match the school's philosophies.

    Keep things consistent

    I worked at Children's Creative Learning Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The teaching ratio for the toddler age was pretty good: 1 teacher to 4 children. So, toddler classrooms had 2 teachers and 8 toddlers. The center was next to trail which made for a great outside activity. Most of the teachers working there are dedicated and passionate about their job. Playground was a very good size. Lesson planning/curriculum was really great, easy to use, and easy to tailor to different developmental levels.

    Cons

    The leadership is very disorganized: poor communication internally (with each other) and externally (to teachers). Classrooms were pretty small for toddlers to have space to run around and play. Set up of the building was very inconvenient. There was one main entrance and parents/teachers had to walk through several other classrooms to get to destination. While the playground was a good size, the equipment/toys were sparse in comparison to how many children there were. Many times it would take weeks/months to get desired classroom materials, even when leadership was given plenty of notice. There was a ton of turnover, which I know is typical for daycares/development centers. In my year there I saw at least 20 people leave. The concerning thing was that many people left for negative reasons: couldn't stand the leadership, pay was too low, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to provide a more competitive hourly wage. Improve the leadership, overall. People that have previous experience managing employees well and that like to manage, should be hired - this is not the case with the leadership that was in place while I was there (2014 - 2015). Leadership should improve communication amongst the leadership as well as to the teachers and other staff. Improve process for ordering class/center materials. Update and increase playground equipment/toys.
