Watching how the children grow and learn.
Site Manager (Former Employee), Baltimore, MarylandJuly 1, 2014
Pros: parent involvement, free lunch, paid time off, and benefits
Cons: lack of staff interest in their jobs and too many chiefs.
I would clock in, set up classroom daily with activities for children. We would interact with the children and parents through greetings and positive communication (Ex: How was your weekend, how was Susie's night, etc.
I learned to follow the child's lead, flexibility, creativity and children are people too and they need to be heard.
Management was conflicting at times, because they would not all the time be on the same page as far as giving accurate information.
Some co-workers I worked with were there to assist the children in progression and some were there just for a pay check.
There was no hard part because I enjoy what I do and what I bring to children, families, staff and the agency.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to see how well the children progressed and how most of the families were involved. I have had the majority of my families ask me about disciplining without spanking, potty training, and milestones of their children development.

Home Visitor (Former Employee), Hillsboro, OHJune 3, 2014
Pros: benifits
Cons: to much pressure
I did home visiting working with children birth to 3, taught the Parents as Teachers following lesson plans that were guided to there age, also worked with parents showing them how to make things from home to work with there children.
I learned how important it is for children to learn and feel safe in there home and I seen many children learn and grow.
Our group of teachers were great we all worked together and supported each other and also traveled to many trainings.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to help some families due to there fear's of people coming into there home or feeling like we might judge them.
I always loved being able to help families and enjoyed when children were standing at the door waiting for me to arrive.

Pros: working with people
Cons: dealing with communication issues with manangement
I really enjoyed working with the team I had at our office. We all worked well together and had a strong passion for what we did.
Management was located within a different building and communication with them was always a struggle.
The hardest part of the job was having time to do everything I wanted to do with and for the families.

Fun with the children
Teacher (Former Employee), Libby, MTJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: children
Cons: management
I loved that I got to play all day, I learned a lot about administrative, documentation and state and federal guidelines. Management was a little hard to work with at times. I got a long with the co-workers, although I felt childish games were going on at times. The hardest part of my job was to teach and to keep up with the center both, while trying to implement programs that were required.
My favorite part were the children and watching them grow and learn through playing.
