Preschool Teacher (Former Employee), Warner Robins, GA – April 22, 2014
Pros: free lunches for the kids, etc
Cons: short breaks for the kids, etc
My typical day at work was Productive. I enjoyed helping the kids read, write, draw and etc. I have learned that helping the kids in what they need help in is a great accomplishment. Management was very productive and gave good guidelines. My co-workers was very respectful and good to work with. The hardest of the job was is learning to see who good – more... at what, whats their strengths and weakness. The most enjoyable part of the job was just enjoying working with the kids in everything they needed help in. – less
Comfortable and welcoming environment with fun in-door and out-door activities
school age teacher (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NC – October 21, 2013
Pros: full time, free lunch, pot lucks, field trips
I would create lesson plans for my children every Friday to guide me through the fun activities we would do throughout the week. Me and my kids would eat breakfast from 7am-8-am, play a morning game or read silently until breakfast was over, then go to centers after breakfast from 8-9 while I do an activity with small groups who would like to join me – more... until 10am. At 9:45am I'm preparing my children to go outside for kickball or a game which is on our lesson plan, go in at 10:45 to prepare for lunch and more lessons of the day. I have learned that you can touch many children lives with as long as you make them feel secure and protected. Young children know a lot and can learn from you and their peers. My supervisor was a motivated, nice accomplisher who always was a team player even though it wasn't always easy she made a way for every co- worker to the best of her ability. My co- workers was like a family we all helped one another get the job done. There was no hardest part to my job because I enjoyed every thing I did. My outside life was the hardest part between taking my mom to the hospital and making sure I keep my mind off if she was going to be alive or dead while I was at work. – less
Cons: i don't get paid what i feel im worth. tired of the drama.
I get to work for 7:30, clean the tables and set up for breakfast, so when my students come in the door they go to there cubbies and put there book bags and blankets away and then wash there hands for breakfast. After breakfast I will have them clean up there breakfast things and put them in the garbage and then they line up to wash there hands again. – more... they then go to the bookshelf select a book and sit down on the carpet to looked at it until the tables and floors have been cleaned after breakfast. once cleaning is done students are asked to stand up and line up so that they can put there books up. they then return to the carpet for group time. During group time we sing songs and also I will read them a book. Group time is only about 15 minutes long. Then one by one the children are asked to get there name tags and pick a center to go play in. we typically do center time for about 30 minutes before going outside and our side time is typically 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the weather conditions. we feed them lunch at about 11:30 and once they have eaten lunch they go to the bathrooms and then they lay down for an hr nap. they will then get up from nap at about 1:30-1:45 at this time they will put there blankets and pillows if they have them into there cubbies and the go to the bathroom. Snack is then served at 2:15.
I have learned a lot from being with the preschool class. I love this position, but not so much the place I work for. :(
I'm going to be honest management could use a little help when it comes to appreciating there employees.
my co-workers and I get along sometimes, but other times not because I just get tired of being bullied or picked on.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with parents who complain about something that is or isn't being done for their child. I have come to a point where I am ok with this more now then before because I understand how they feel about their children, although I don't have any I do however have two nephews who I adore.
the most enjoyable part of my job is when a child gains the knowledge of something they have been learning for weeks or months. – less
With Better Management It was amazing- then things went downhill
Caregiver (Former Employee), Hixson, TN – September 3, 2013
I was an employee for 3 years at this place- many of my coworkers became like family-I had the best boss ever- she was so laid back and personable-you could talk to her ab anything. If I had any kind of issues, I knew I could go right to her and discuss it openly- then she decided to go back to school and a new director was coming- from day one this – more... lady rubbed me the wrong way- suddenly we weren't people anymore- most of us had been there for years and we didn't know how to do our job- yes the pay of 7.25 an hour sucked but I was there to enjoy my day- play w kids In 3 years I never received a raise, but it was worth it- til she came along and tr5eated us horrible- within 3 months we had 9 employees 7 of which had worked there a year or more quit- Several of us were on state help and the requirements are work @ least 30- hrs- this boss started cutting hours left and right. I gave my two week notice about 8 months after her employment. And the kids are amazing if you know how to get down to their level and communicate. – less
Pre K Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Valdosta, GA – August 15, 2013
Pros: an opportunity to teach children at their prime
A typical day at work is children learning, have fun, and learn how to interact with others. I learned how to teach children from where they are. To do to them and teach each one as an individual, knowing that not everyone learn in the same way. As long as I did my job I had no problems with the management staff. The co-workers were friendly and away – more... willing to help one another in times of need. To me there were no hard parts to this job just thing to overcome. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the children learn. – less
LEAD TEACHER (Former Employee), Columbus, GA – July 29, 2013
Pros: productive activities
Cons: don't have any
A typical day at work is when classroom activities went smooth and was easy to transition the kids in order to teach curriculum and outside activities. The co-workers were pleasant and respectable to one another. My mot enjoyable part of the job was the kids and how they were eager to learn old and new materials and talk about themselves. Management – more... was courteous. I learned better ways to teach each child because every child is unique in their own way. There was no hard parts to me; except to miss a child when they were out because they missed what was being taught. – less
Childcare Teacher (Current Employee), New Bern, NC – July 24, 2013
I have worked at Childcare Network for 6.5 years. I have worked in several different classes, and I enjoy working with the various age groups of children. The staff has become like a second family. The hardest decision I have ever had to make was deciding it is my time to move forward. The job is great, but the pay is terrible. I have not had a raise – more... since I have been employed with this company. – less
Floater/Secretary (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – June 27, 2013
Interacting with the children. I have learned how to have patience when it comes to children. The hardest part was getting the children to adapt to a schedule. The most enjoyable part is seeing the children everyday.
