I have been working at The Malvern School full-time (More than a year)

Pros

the week between christmas and new years is paid vacation for everyone. the management is hard working and cares about the schools.

Cons

lead teachers are salaried at 25,000 to start and expected to work over 40 hours regularly. the health benefits are very expensive and not very good.

Advice to Management

in order to retain great people, provide better compensation.

    I have been working at The Malvern School full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Malvern School is one of the best places I have ever worked. I feel truly supported by my management team, and I can go to them with any questions or concerns I have. This school truly values early childhood education. I couldn't be happier.

    Cons

    As with all early childhood, the pay isn't what you would hope, but that is not to fault the school.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for all you do. The support you provide is beyond helpful.

    I have been working at The Malvern School full-time

    Pros

    All the stuff they CLAIM they do WOULD be "Pros" But it is all for show, therefore it is hard to even name one good thing.

    Cons

    - Hand/foot/mouth disease goes around monthly and the school fails to notify parents and families. Cleanliness is definitely an issue and no action is taken.
    - Director's are arrogant and could care less about the children's well-being or development. They also clearly show favoritism when it comes to employees.
    - Employees are filled with gossip and politics, rather than collaborating & being supportive.
    - Classrooms are chaotic and have no sense of discipline, I would not want my child attending if hitting and throwing toys at heads is acceptable!

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate and respectful to parents rather than treating them like a dollar sign!!
