I Miss Working With Preschool Children Only!

2.61

Company Culture

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.

Teamwork

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.

Internal Communication

Yes, We Had Staff Meetings When The Daycare Center Was Closed All Day.

Gender Equality

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.

Career Development

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.

Environmental Friendliness

The Center Has A Yard Sale, Entertainment Book Selling For Fund Raising. Blood Bank Drive Was Done Last May.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Company Image

Yes Of Course, The Employees Will Say They Love Their Jobs. Google The Reviews For This Place!

Job Security

I Got Laid Off By Email After Being There 6 Months As An Intern. Look At Lots Of Day Care Job Openings Online.

Handicapped Accessibility

They Have A Ramp Outside Before You Go Inside Center. Too Small For Elevator.

Workplace Safety

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.

Challenging Work

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.
