    I worked at Goodstart Early Learning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with. Great interaction with children and also parents. At its best, can be pleasant and rewarding.

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of paperwork, some of which has to be done in our own time, either in lunch breaks or at home. Negativity from management, constant criticisms and bullying (with moments of positives). Sometimes terrible communication, with some expectations not explained at all, and then we're in trouble if we don't do it, while other instructions can be contradictory and confusing.

    Advice to Management

    You want your staff to treat children positively. You need to learn to do that to your employees. There is a time for pointing out negatives, of course, but to focus on it so much helps make it a very toxic culture.
