Sr. Network Engineer (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 6, 2015
Many good people. Unfortunately this 100+ year old non profit went bankrupt. There was a great deal of politics that governed advancement.

A great work place, but little pay
Fitness Therapist/Parkinson's Specialist (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 19, 2014
A typical day at Sheltering Arms does tap into the neuro capabilities of every employee. However, the pay is not the greatest, nor is the management. However, the directors and the Board of Directors and other upper management is phenomenal!

I enjoyed working as a Food service assistant and I also enjoyed the interaction with the kids and parents.
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee), Union City, GAMarch 25, 2014
I will assist the manager with preparing breakfast,lunch, and snack for the children. I learned how to be able to cook for a large amount of people. I enjoyed my co- workers at the job they were friendly, helpful. I enjoyed on my down time to go interact with the different children, so that they get to know me outside of the kitchen.

Revolving door
teacher (Former Employee), east pointFebruary 23, 2013
Pros: decent salary to start
Cons: super short breaks, lack of support from management, high turnover rate
Sheltering Arms is an rather interesting place to work. The overall concept to help children and families is awesome, but some how falls to the wayside as mis -management takes over. This place is a revolving door and the reason is easy to see.........mis-management.
Teachers are overworked, get super short breaks and have tons of paperwork to be done at the same time while dealing with young children who have behavior issues.

Rewarding Job with an open door policy
Lead Teacher of Early Head Start (Current Employee), Marietta, Ga 30008February 20, 2013
Pros: benefits, salary
Cons: short breaks
I open my room so my job is to setup supplies for that day activities. I clean all tables with three bottles one with soap water, disinfect and sanitize the tables. I greet each parent and child at the door with a smile. i also perform a health check on the children and write down any marks visible on my attendance sheet. I'm the lead teacher so I have two other teachers that I'm responsible for each day. At the end of each month I do a teacher evaluations on each teachers performance. I have two hard working co-workers who makes my job much easier they both posses great leadership skills. The hardest part of my job is the continuous change in rules and the endless paper work. The most enjoyable part of my job is the love for the children in my care and when they accomplish a task that once was hard for them to accomplish.
