    Pros

    This is a wonderful place to work if you appreciate your co-workers as well as enjoy working with people who enjoy their job. Easy to use technology to help keep our families connected with our school day (no writing down extensive notes). We work as a co-team environment and teachers support each other through instructions, activities, schedules and events. It is a very welcoming atmosphere as well as supportive for the students and staff alike.

    Cons

    Teacher supplies can be very low for activities. Technology can be slow depending on the internet connection.

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting the staff as well as having extra staff on days there are a lot of children within the classroom.

    Pros

    I've worked at many preschool's, and this was by far my best experience. I've worked at 2 different locations and the management really does determine the experience you're going to have. The classrooms are decorated and beautiful. I loved the children.. some families can be a bit much, but it's a business and you have to please everyone to an extent.

    Cons

    Get benefits for employees! It will help encourage them to stay and keep the turnover rate low.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a neutral mind and stop favoritism among employees.
