Horrible Place To Work! I wouldn't let them care for my pet goldfish!
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Matthews, NC – May 27, 2016
The center that I worked for in Charlotte ( Matthews) NC was by far the worst! The director had little to no knowledge about the childcare profession. She never understood that the director sets the tone or mood for her employees on a daily basis. She ran the place based on her emotions and feelings for both the parents and employees Budget was more important than the kids and and the supplies needed to get through a normal day. The expectations of you were high but you had little to no support on purchasing supplies needed to meet the needs of the curriculum. The children were allowed to come to school sick, and trust me it will be very obvious that they're sick. There is ABSOLUTELY no cut off time, parents were able to bring their kids in when they wanted to. The development of the children was definitely not important. Most of the employees have no education at all! The most horrible part of the job was a lack of parent involvement and support. Most of the children attended for free, or low cost so parents looked at the center as babysitting for low prices. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the children happy and socially interacting with each other.
Seeing the children daily
No potty breaks, no support from management or staff, low pay
