    I have been working at Learn and Play Montessori School

    Pros

    I am delighted to share this beautiful and memorable Learn and Play Montessori School Work Story to all Glassdoor followers. Currently, I am the Curriculum Director of Learn and Play Montessori School at Niles, Fremont, CA. I did not even notice the months that passed by while working with young children in the Kindergarten classroom at the initial phase of my career in this beautiful school. After four months of successful work, I was appointed by Mr. Harpreet and Ms. Kiran to help in managing the school. With the guidance of these two wonderful people, the challenging work became an inspiration instead of an obstacle, and I have worked harmoniously with them for five years now. Here are the great reasons why I am a part of LAPMS Family: 1. Family and Connectedness: LAPMS is my second family. I consider my work as my second home because I spend more time at school with the children and their families, parents and friends, colleagues and advisors. We enjoy family picnics, events, and community involvement among staff members, parents, and with our great leaders at LAPMS: Mr. Harpreet and Ms. Kiran. Being in my second home, I can work happily and successfully each day. I love coming to work every day and it is very rare that I am absent because LAPMS is in my heart, a part of my life. 2. Work benefits: The school management takes care of its staff members with these great work benefits: PTO, Sick Leave, Health/Dental/Vision Plans and 401 K. My 401 K grows unknowingly; I was surprised I have savings in there! The school continuously works with the HR department in finding ways to add additional benefits yearly. 3. Wonderful Opportunities: Seminars and workshops are encouraged for staff development. Our teachers use our school site as the place for teaching and learning opportunities. We are a diverse school where I learn different cultures and values with many friends and colleagues. I encourage you to come and discover what LAPMS offers anyone who wants to join our growing LAPMS family. It is not easy to find a good employer out there, but LAPMS will take care of you and your family. Discover the great teaching and learning opportunities this great school has to offer!

    Cons

    I have been very happy working here at LAPMS, and I have yet to find anything to be dissatisfied about.

    I have been working at Learn and Play Montessori School full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working at Learn and Play Montessori School, Maple location, for around a year and a half now. My experience has been a very good one. I am a person who is very particular about things. Being in the field of childhood education makes me a part of this village that bears responsibility to ensure that each child is raised to his or her full potential; a responsibility that one cannot take lightly. To make this happen one needs to work with a team that shares the vision and that is what I found in Learn and Play Montessori. Here are a few things that make this workplace stand out for me: 1. Children come first: It is all about the children. Be it curriculum, their safety, the food, the environment, everything is designed keeping the children and their development in mind. That to me is very important. Management leaves no stone unturned: Frequent visits, calling in safety inspectors, organizing training for Directors and Teachers just to name a few things. 2. Mutual Respect and Camaraderie: This is another aspect that speaks to me. There is mutual respect between every member of the team. We have 5 different locations, but they function as one. It feels like family…I stand corrected – It is a Family. Every director is ready to step in and help. It is an environment of a big collective working as one without any room for unhealthy competitiveness between centers. 3. Protocols and standards in place: All licensing protocols and standards are in place and adhered to. It doesn’t stop there, I find the management is always welcome and open to ideas to make this even better. 4. Giving back to the community: Ms.Kiran and Harpreet are very big on community, which is something close to my heart. Be it organizing food drives, adding a segment of teaching children about community, helping parents or children in need, the list can go on. 5. Empowered to work alone and as a part of the collective: Each director is empowered to bring in the best they have to offer to the school and its children. At the same time, directors are encouraged to work as a collective. 6. A Thankful Management: There is always a thoughtful personal touch that tells the employee that they are valued. I get calls and emails from the management just to say Thank you!! This kind of appreciative environment motivates one to do more. 7. Work ethics: I find this place to be run in a fair manner. 8. Flexibility: They offer employees flexible schedules, ensuring that employees can balance family and work. 9. Benefits: LAPMS management strives to make it better each year, adding to the benefit plans. The school offers: PTO, Sick Leave, Health/Dental/Vision plans and a 401K with school contribution as well. To summarize, it is a joy to work with a school that plays a big role in making this world a better place, one child at a time, with a management that is open-minded, respectful and continues to find ways to make it even better, a curriculum that stems from the children’ development in mind, and events that encourage the parents to be a part of their child’s journey here at school.

    Cons

    Not sure if this counts as a con but I wish there were more centers so that many more children can benefit from this program. But I know that opening many centers comes with the risk of the program becoming dilute. Ms.Kiran and Harpreet are very big on providing the absolute best without compromising on the quality of the program, so that might be the major reason for them not wanting to expand.
