beautiful center, loved my co-workers
Infant program Education Coordinator (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: nice environment
Cons: very stressful environment, i had to take a lot of work home.
I was an education coordinator for the infant program.

The lady before me was let go and the staff had an instant dislike to me.

The director would have weekly meetings with the teachers and ask about me
I had to write a staff up for putting a child in danger and I got in trouble for it.
Very stressful environment, I always had to bring my work home to finish because I was in the classroom everyday.

The director would call parents inappropriate names when we would have our monthly meetings. I was, and the other 2 education coordinators as well, were horrified. I left, and one of the coordinator retired, and the last one quit, they could not take it any more either.

Director and assistant director would never come and help in the classroom.

great place to work
Teacher (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXFebruary 15, 2015
BHFS is a great place to work and provides opportunities to grow and learn in the field of child development. They also provide great benefits including health coverage, dental coverage, vision and 401K to name a few. We also benefit from bright bargains which is comparable to groupon for employees. The hardest part of the job is all of the paperwork necessary to complete the job requirements with minimal time outside of the classroom as is the case with most high quality child care programs. Lets face it, the children need us! The most enjoyable part about the job is creating an environment conducive to learning for the children and being able to partner with families to help children learn life skills to succeed in school and life. BHFS has taught me everything a book cant teach. Most of my practical experience comes from the time i have invested at BHFS. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Fun place to work
Teacher Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: training, advancement, reconnection
Cons: better pay
A typical day at work is greeting the parents and their children. Getting the classroom prepared for the day. Tracking each child. Changing diapers, serving breakfast ,lunch and snack. Watching children explore and learn through play and loving every minute of it.
Enjoying working with your co-workers and management who are committed to keeping the children happy and safe. The most enjoyable part of my job is encouraging each child, infant to pre-school thru age appropriate curriculum and watch their individual skills, self-confidence and independence grow. The hardest part of the job is when the children leave the centers.

Pros: keeps you busy, good people, weekends and holidays off

Days went really fast, and I got along great with the staff. A little stressful sometimes, but nothing I couldn't handle.

It was just really matter of being closer to home for my kids.

cook (Current Employee), cincinnati,ohFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: paid vacation, sick time and leave 401k and dental and medical
Cons: not so understanding about life outside of work, but they try
prepare and cook pm, am snacks breakfast and lunch
2 man kitchen we were responsible for all food related functions on any given day Monday through Friday am snack at 6:30 breakfast at 8:30 lunch at 11:30 and pm snack is t 3 pm. I was the early person 6:30 to 3:30 I began all prep for the day even 2 to 3 days ahead depending on the up coming menu for the week. we created our own menu 4 week 3 month period. Everyday food is prepared for about 200 people staff and kids ages 6 months to 5 including staff. co worker was great older lady really knows her stuff. even though she was hired on as the head chef I was able to teach her something's about cooking as well as train her on the job. I taught her that cooking s not always a science. Basically meaning just have fun doing what you love to do. The hardest part of the day would be the start of work. lol still in the process of waking up but after I cup of coffee I'm good and awake. the best thing about my day is the reactions and the smiles from the kids as the day progresses. my coworkers including those outside of the kitchen are fun and friendly and loves to smile< as well as myself
