  1. "On Our Way is, deservedly so, one of the most valuable resources on the Rockaway Peninsula, serving children 2-5 years."

    I worked at On Our Way full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The program has a veteran staff; compared to other programs, the turnover rate is very low which provides continuity for the children/parents, and a level of expertise hard to match. While a job is a job, the quality of personnel at the program is stellar; people of extraordinary commitment and a feeling for children and families that goes beyond being a job

    Cons

    As an agency, I didn't see any significant cons. I was Executive Director. Prudent management involves self analysis and the present administration I'm sure is always looking to improve it's service to the community

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the prevailing philosophy of OOW, which is to show respect for the challenges of the parents of special needs children, and to afford that respect to the staff, reminding them of their special value. I believe this is done, kudos for that


  2. "Extraordinary Service to Special Needs Children"

    Continue as you have for 23 years
