Support from management

Management is not as visible as they need to be.

Internal Communication

Teachers are kept out of the loop on a large scale.

Gender Equality

Male teachers are often scrutinized by parents and management does not back them up as much as they should.

Career Development

Management tries to keep you where it best suits them versus working with you to advance in your career.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay is not a living wage; especially if you have a family.

Office / Work Environment

The staff tries to help each other out. However; management is disorganized.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Communication, communication, communication!

What I like about the company

There are multiple locations and transferring for growth purposes is a relatively simple process.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of communication and low pay

Suggestions for improvement

  • Higher pay rates, significant pay raises ($3-5.50) every 6 months, better communication between staff and administration.

What I like about the company

Working with the children is a positive experience that I've had. Seeing their faces and hearing them get excited when you arrive each day is amazing.

What I dislike about the company

I along with other co-workers think that we don't get paid enough for the work that we are required to do. Some of my co-workers have degrees in Early Childhood and they are making less than $16.00 and hour. There is a lack of communication between the administration and employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better incentives to keep teachers/reduce turn-over rate. Bigger budget to be able to give teachers more support for planning and other work that needs to be done outside the classroom and be able to provide them with more supplies.

What I like about the company

I really enjoyed the children and their families and formed lasting relationships. I also worked with some great people.

What I dislike about the company

This center is on the lower end of the totem pole in regard to funding/budgeting. There was never enough staff on hand or time for proper lesson planning. We were often short-staffed if someone was sick or out for another reason.
