Company Culture

Lots of good people to work with

Support from management

Not really

Teamwork

Depends on the center and the classroom

Freedom to work independently

Ratios are state-driven

Internal Communication

For the most part

Gender Equality

The right question is "are men have equally" - yes! They are coveted in this profession - young children need positive role models!!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes! The trouble is education. Many in this field are available, totally capable, but not educated. Now with Step Up To Quality, many of the loved, respected, and experienced teachers are demoted due to lack of education.

Career Development

The company does allow for professional development. However, that is also state-mandated. I wish we could get better trainings with more practical topics than just local, state-run, state-approved sessions.

Overall compensation for your work

No way!! Early Childhood is not a choice if money matters to you. Currently, my pay rate is better because it is subsidized by Head Start as well.

Office / Work Environment

The lighting is fluorescent - kids need other, especially young ones. Lots of areas are all connected - lights/temperature, so individual classes do not have control - not great!!

Environmental Friendliness

I am not aware of any recycling other than fun art projects out of paper towel tubes!!

Work-Life Balance

No. I do not feel appreciated as a parent, and am often guilt-ed into working even if I am needed at home

Company Image

I would say yes. There are great teachers, great classes and great things going on there!

Job Security

Again, an educated professional willing to work for minimal pay with NO guarantee of hours, I am very marketable. Educare does try to get good teachers, but needs to work on it to keep them!!!

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, to all of the above

Workplace Safety

Yes. Our big tough one here is that kids get sick. We need to follow procedures when kids are sick - send them home and DO NOT LET THEM RETURN for at least 24 hours. We also need to allow those of us with children at the center to miss work if our kids are the ones sick!!!!!

Challenging Work

I love working with children and love watching them grow and learn. Their success are my success, from potty-training to ABC's

Inclusive / Diverse

Mostly, yes. We definitely have a diverse workforce, but basically the site director is the one who dictates what does and does not happen

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allowing staff to vary shifts would greatly increase morale and teacher satisfaction!!

What I like about the company

*Lots of possibilities for various types of work: infants to school age
*Great PR person who honestly seeks to improve job satisfaction

What I dislike about the company

Employees need to be treated the way they want ALL the parents to be treated.
