The ONLY thing that kept me there for the year that I worked was my fantastic coworkers. Had to leave for multiple reasons: low pay, poor benefits, grossly under-staffed, threats of no bathroom breaks, unappreciative parents, corporate was constantly coming up with ridiculous rules and guidelines to follow, you had to beg/borrow/steal in order to get a single day off, etc. The list goes on and on.
I was smart that when I had to call in due to illness I didn't ask if I could, I told my director I wasn't coming in. If you ask, you'll be expected to come in and they will promise to get you out sooner than your scheduled time to leave. Expect to get sick over and over again for this very reason--ill employees expose their contagious germs to fellow coworkers and to the children as well, it had a potential to be a vicious cycle during flu season.
If your goal is to teach, this is the perfect place to pay your dues and get your feet wet. You'll gain experience working with infants (6 weeks old) to children up to age 5, as well as after-school aged children. You'll definitely end up appreciating working in a real school district one day. If your goal is to pay your bills (hahaha), this is a great pit-stop. You will end up eventually leaving having made some great friendships and awesome memories of the babies/children you cared for. :)
