I Miss Working With Preschool Children Only!
The Director Commended The Lead Preschool Teacher. She Became The Center Supervisor. A Few Teachers Were Called Out On Staff Development Days.
Support from management
The Director Yelled At Me, Sent Me Home, Cut My Hours, No Medical Insurance, Did Nothing When I Fell Down At Cinemark Theatre On A Field Trip.
Some Teamwork Was Used There.
Freedom to work independently
I Cleaned Classrooms, Bathrooms, Set Up Play Centers, Served Food, Vaccumed Floor, Swept & Mopped Floors, Bathroom Duty, Assisted 2 Preschool Teachers.
Yes, We Had Staff Meetings When The Daycare Center Was Closed All Day.
There Were Mostly Female Teachers and The Director's 2 Sons & Husband Work There.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There Was 1 Older Woman, Myself, Director, Director's Hubby Were Older. Other Employees Were In Their 20's Or 30's. I Had A 25 Year Old Female Trainer.
We Had Professional Development Days, On-The-Job Training, TECE 1 &2, Intern, Teacher Certificates Are Must-Haves In Child Care Centers Or ECE Degree, CDA, 6 Months-1 Yr. Experience With Young Children.
Overall compensation for your work
Working In Child Care Centers Doesn't Pay Great. I Worked At $7.75 An Hour. I'm On My Husband's Health Insurance Plan.
Office / Work Environment
The Working Conditions Were Okay At Least. Computers And Kid's Activities Were There.
The Center Has A Yard Sale, Entertainment Book Selling For Fund Raising. Blood Bank Drive Was Done Last May.
Calling Off Work, Cell Phone Use, Not Wearing Scrubs, Going Slow Was Frowned Upon There. I Didn't Get Vacation Days. Came To Work With Bad Cold, Lower Back Pain.
Yes Of Course, The Employees Will Say They Love Their Jobs. Google The Reviews For This Place!
I Got Laid Off By Email After Being There 6 Months As An Intern. Look At Lots Of Day Care Job Openings Online.
They Have A Ramp Outside Before You Go Inside Center. Too Small For Elevator.
I Never Got Injured On Day Care Center Property. I Fell Down At Movie Theater On Field Trip. I Went To Work With Fractured Pelvis. Didn't Know Until I Saw A Med Express Doctor After Work Hours.
I Loved Working There At First, But Young Lead Teacher Would Say I Wasn't Helping Her At Work.
Inclusive / Diverse
It Was A Small Daycare Center, But Had Different Races, Nationalities Working & Kids Being There.
Suggestions for improvement
- Have The Owner Sell Day Care Center, So Her & Her Husband Can Retire.
What I like about the company
I Enjoyed Working Around The 3 To 5 Year Old Preschool Kids! No Diapers To Change, No Bottle Feedings, No Cribs, No Potty Training, Christmas Gifts, Holiday Parties For The Kids, Paid Training.
What I dislike about the company
Minimum Wage Pay, Had To Clean Classrooms, Take Out Trash/Stinky Diapers, Children Who Wouldn't Listen, The Director Yelling At People, Sent Home Early, Hours Cut, Parents That Complained.
