Hands on environment that was productive and enjoyable
Teacher (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NC – October 10, 2013
Pros: job opportunities, interaction with the children
I enjoyed everything about this job. I learned the basics as well as some more intense ways of being a teacher and how severe it is that good teachers are there for children ages 0-12. Hardest part of the job is when I connected with a child and the moved or aged out of the assigned class and my interaction was affected
For such a large company poorly run. Most in upper management are not leaders and are usually versed in one area of expertise. The best candidates are not hired but recycled. Employees who create a negative culture are moved rather than fired. Basic child development needs are not met because staff and leadership are not versed in culturally and developmentally – more... appropriate systems. Professionalism is non existent. I have been in the field of ece for over 20 years and have to say, worst company I have been part of. As a male in the field with a MA in ece and Doctorate in organizational leadership/ human service administration, unethical and uncaring culture, especially in upper management. – less
The setting was very small, as well as the work environment.
Pre-K Teacher (Former Employee), Decatur, GA – July 3, 2013
Pros: the pros were the free meals provided for the teachers and the students.
Cons: one con is the lack of flexibility present in the work environment.
A typical day at work would be a little overwheling, considering if the co-teacher is out of work, there is no replacement for that teacher, which would make the day kind of difficult. I have learned though, how to be a better support for the children, and to better motivate them to learn. There was only one manager in the entire building, and that – more... was the director, but there was a second-in-charge. The co-workers were a little exclusive. One of them tends to be a little bossy, and the others are pretty much cooperative. The hardest part of the job is the extra responsibilities that accompany the teaching responsibility itself. The most enjoyable part of the job was that affection received from the children and the parents. – less
Director (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – February 8, 2013
Pros: free daycare
Cons: no benefits
I really enjoyed my time at The Sunshine House. Although the work was hard at times the job it self was very rewarding. Seeing kids take there first steps or using the potty for the first time was great. Employees that worked for me was sometimes the hardest. I gained there respect and trust and it got better.

I loved myt time at the Sunshine House I loved my co-workers and management we always had a blast together and made each other laugh when one was down. Most importantly I still have memories of my class that I occasionally look at and cry because they made coming to work so wonderful.

Cons: no breaks unless you clock out...use to have 15 min breaks new owners took that away..
The Sunshine House went from a loving and caring Family center to a money market..they dont care about employees at all....no raises, limited benefits for employees childcare fee went from 50 off to 30 off.. Upper management very rude...
Teacher (Former Employee), Ga – September 27, 2012
Cons: no childcare benefits and horrible upper management
The Sunshine House use to be a good place to work. It's been sold and the new regional over Atlanta is horrible. They do not value their employee's anymore and the new Atlanta regional could care less about her director's or employee's.
