It's a great job while you're in school or just starting out in education
The salary is not the best for th amount of work you out into the school.

If you live children and money isn't an issue this is a great place to start a career in teaching.
The management only care about money and not the amount of work you put in. A lot of unpaid work goes into this job3

You build strong bonds with the kids
Feels like babysitting Low pay for the amount of work they expect you to do Almost no time for lesson planning SO hard to get a restroom break No support from admin Almost no benefits False promises4

Good building, could use a staff space though Great families and kids! Most co-workers care about the kids a lot
Not enough staff Low pay for the amount of work done at home and at school No time outside of the classroom Very little time off - no breaks like the school district Not enough in service days or planning time Poor communication Several under qualified or just plain horrible teachers, some are borderline abusive

The Goddard school is great in the aspect of allowing it’s teacher to teach what they feel is best and developmentally appropriate for the classroom their in. The school is kept in high regard for its cleanliness and updated technology
High turnover. Also salary could be increased for the amount of work done and the physical and mental capacity you must meet.1

Working with children Smiling with children Learning with children Having a lunch break of an hour Reading to children and them learning
The gossip between teachers and with the administrators is unbelievable. Often times you are up and off the floor with the kids. You are sitting on the floor in the toddler rooms, and you are bending constantly. I had severe back pain. The pay at 13$ hourly is horrible for the amount of work and teaching children!1

Working with the children is great, and I am lucky to work at a center with some pretty great co-workers.
The amount of work you do as a Lead compared to the pay you get is not worth it. Especially if you have more than a CDA. As a higher-education graduate, I do not feel valued if I am being paid the same as someone with a CDA. There is also very little to no room for career growth. I do not take advantage of benefits, so I cannot comment on them.

The kids, of course. Hour break No nights or weekends
Pay. Minimum wage is not worth it for the amount of work that this job entails.
