Pros: great kids, families willing to be partners in the children's development
Cons: mismanaged administration, minimal training, lack of support for allowing teachers to manage classroom beyond keeping ratio quotas.
Loved the families and children. Great, experienced co-teacher to work with during the day. Downfall was their priority to have toddlers nap in order to meet state mandated ratios even though their company policy and curriculum stress allowing children to be awake if they are unable to nap. Was left in situation wherein ratio could only be met if all – more... children were on cots asleep. Left without help in case of emergency and no way to retrieve support. The potential here is great. Be wise to investigate if the particular center is appropriately managed. – less
