Support from management

Assistants are treated poorly, like they do not matter in the classroom. Their is a major lack in support from management.

Teamwork

Work environment often gets hostile. Employees are not willing to work together or help one another out. A lot of talking behind backs instead of being honest, direct, and helpful.

Freedom to work independently

Teachers are definitely trusted to work independently, which can be good and bad. There is a lot of creative freedom, but there is no support when help is actually needed.

Internal Communication

There is no regular communication. When changes occur in the workplace we were not notified and given very little opportunity to adjust. Often I was given false information about how to effectively run a classroom.

Gender Equality

This one is hard to answer. It is an all women staff, which is not uncommon in daycare.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior staff is appreciated, but sometimes more than they should be. Many of the older staff are favored just because of their age, when younger workers (especially assistants) are treated very poorly.

Career Development

There aren't a lot of opportunities to move up unless you become teacher certified. If you do, you move up. This is usually how it works anyways. I have to say there are some great workshops at the staff meetings.

Overall compensation for your work

No benefits and it is very tough to get a raise.

Office / Work Environment

Building is well updated and mostly comfortable.

Environmental Friendliness

We had recycling bins but at the end of the day everything is thrown in the same dumpster. We went through paper products and food too fast. There was no limit that we had to keep it at like at many daycares so many things were wasted.

Work-Life Balance

There was a lot of favoritism there. So certain teachers changed their schedules whenever they wanted leaving others to work 10-11 hour days and unable to make time for personal things. It was easy to get time off if asked in advance, but only for certain people.

Company Image

I consider myself very professional, however, I will be honest in saying I was not proud to be a part of the team. Every day I would concentrate on the kids and doing what's best for them, the kids and parents make it worth it. However, the staff is not very professional. There is a lot of immaturity and hostility.

Handicapped Accessibility

There is a wheelchair elevator, but it is never used.

Workplace Safety

We were taught CPR and first aid, but fire drills, etc. were usually confusing and unclear.

Challenging Work

This has changed over time. You used to be able to make your own curriculum but now there is a little bit more structure, which is good. The work being done in the classroom has definitely improved over time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat the employees better. Take control of employee on employee interactions.
  • Treat everyone equally.

What I like about the company

Love the kids and the parents.

What I dislike about the company

Unfair treatment of employees (favoritism, bullying, etc.)
Lack of fair compensation. Inflexible scheduled.
