Teacher assistant (Former Employee) – Prosser, WA – January 16, 2018
Good place to start working. Great people to work with as well as there are also co-workers just watching your every step. They have you moving around to different Centers as they were in need of staff.
Family Advocate (Former Employee) – Basin City, WA – May 18, 2017
Working with the families and children was amazing and made it worth going to work. There is a lot of gossip that happens here and everyone wants to bring their personal life to work. Even if you don't want your personal life to be known it will, even the supervisors will come and question you about it.
Work schedules are changed often, no overtime, inclement weather is unpaid.
Assistant Preschool Teacher (Current Employee) – College Place, WA – August 8, 2016
I love my job at Inspire! I have been here for 2 years and enjoy the staff and families. Being a non-profit organization, you know most that work here are here because they love what they do. I see people posting about the pay but they need to realize we are federally funded and not for profit. The company is growing each year and I am exited to be apart of it.

It is usually the responsibility of the preschool teacher's assistant to plan activities for children, such as storytelling or art projects. They instruct and supervise them in social and developmental activities, help feed and change them, and generally provide one-on-one attention when needed. He or she must help organize the classroom and plan intellectual activities for children, per the lead teacher's requests.
The duties of a preschool teacher's assistant includes interacting with children, preparing snacks, teaching children about numbers, colors and shapes, helping them get dressed and changing their diapers when needed. They also evaluate students' social development and physical well-being. Preschool teacher's assistants should be prepared to take on the role of lead teacher when needed.
Some assistants work specifically with children who have developmental disabilities. They help them with exercises and games designed to facilitate their development. Their work is supervised by qualified therapists or teachers.

Specialist (Former Employee) – Sunnyside, WA – May 22, 2015
In the time of employment there was never a stable management. The company fired the CEO and lied to staff about it for months, and they had many different directors in place. This company lack organization and the true following of their own vision and mission. They sacrificed services in the ECEAP program to better line the upper level management pockets, and they are not really connected to children and families as they regularly receive parent complaints. Moving up in this company I based on your race and who you know, not what skills and achievement you bring to the company.
poor mamangement, constant turnover, lack of public service

Lead Toddler Teacher (Former Employee) – Malott, WA – October 27, 2013
My typical day at work was pretty basic get there and follow a lesson plan that had to be created before coming to work for the week. It went really smoothly. No chaos with co workers great work environment everyone was always so cheerful and ready to work even when it we started really early in the morning. The most enjoyable part of the job was being around the kids and getting the activities done. The hardest part would have to be meeting deadlines due to the lack of personnel it was not easy to get out of the classroom especially because of ratios. Lastly management was amazing always very helpful.
Great experience gained, friendly co-workers, good benefits.
