    I worked at Goodstart Early Learning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Discounted childcare and office is out of the city.

    Cons

    It’s a high pressure environment when there is little need for the drama. Projects fail to deliver due to silo’ed work cultures and little desire for collaboration between the teams even though there’s lip service to the good future way of working together unless We sent irrelevant tasks to centres to do because of the latest management trends someone heard about at a conference. People stay and get their childcare discount...

    I have been working at Goodstart Early Learning part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The organisation with big ambitions and a lot of effort put into staying up to date with latest educational theories and practices

    Cons

    The budgets and time allocated to centres do not reflect those ambitions. A lot is expected to be done “out of goodwill”.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is.

    A not for profit that really puts its time, passion and money where its mouth is

    If you aren't passionate you might find the offers of continual learning tiring

    Advice to Management

    Keep letting families and educators know about the amazing work you do
