Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), North Wales, PA – June 2, 2014
Pros: great families & kids
Cons: unprofessional staff, irresponsible management, favoritism, unrealistic standards, lack of supplies, inconsistent with policies, constantly understaffed.
Worked for this company for almost a year. The only thing consistent was that it was inconsistent. Teacher turn over averages 1-2 a month so it was always understaffed. Sick days were basically laughable because you were told you had to come in. Parents never had to follow policies in handbook so you could be there past 6pm closing and they were not – more... charged. Pink eye ran rampant because children were not made to go home when they had it.
I learned that the expectations and goals set for these teachers were ridiculously high and unattainable, especially when there is no support given from superiors. They really know how to kick you when you're down. Morale was very very low.
The only positive thing about the place was the families that go there. Most were excellent and incredibly supportive of the teachers. – less
Stressful, overwhelming pressure workload for a preschool environment

Pros: no pros
Cons: gossip, awful management, too many strict policies, cannot create your own classroom
Awful experience, awful management, and there were only 2 coworkers that i enjoy working with. Too many policies, cannot create your own classroom, and way too much favoritism towards certain employees
Part timel teacher Assistant (Current Employee), Phoenixville, PA – September 12, 2012
Pros: team work, educational structure, friendly atmosphere, safety guidelines, staff, parents & children
Cons: after work activities
I love working at the Malvern school in oks. I have been there over 2yrs. & I work mostly in the infant room. However I have worked in all rooms & I love the educational structure they have. It is the best feeling to be there, the interaction with the children and there parents is the best. I love that the staff, all work as a team & help one another – more... when needed. It is such a rewarding thing when one works at a place & does what they really love. It doesn't seem like work some days because I'm doing what I love to do. I not only have a job I love but I work with a staff that makes coming to work a pleasure. And I have two great and understanding directors to boot. (smile) – less
