Workload is excessive...especially given the fact that planning time is scarce. Way too many expectations for teachers and way too low pay. Observations, documentation, fun pics, conferences, environment changes, lesson plans, movement matters plans, doc boards, etc....fake facade put on for parents benefit. The children really lose out on fun and learning because teachers are expected to enforce so many policies that it takes away from the children. Management is too concerned with the higher ups that staff morale is never a prerogative. Stop micromanaging. Head honchos need to be available, get your hands dirty, while company perks and benefits are amazing....it’s not always enough, be present, compassion and empathy go a long way.

After you apply, a recruiter calls you to discuss which age groups you would work best with, then that recruiter sets you up with the center to schedule an interview. After the interview (mine was myself and another candidate answering questions to the Director, Assistant Director, and an Education Coordinator) you are invited to visit the age group you have applied to work with in a working interview. During the working interview, you can do an activity, ask questions, read a book, etc. with the class.

It’s fifty percent off but it depends on your location if your child could actually be at your location some centers have it where it’s a limited to how may staff can bring their kids only because it’s a long process they have to go to to get your account adjusted for deductions and making sure that your child is really your child and all that other stuff but they do allow you to send your child to another center and still get fifty percent off.

Walk a mile in your employees shoes. We hear over and over that we are a Fortune 500 company, what a slap in the face!!! Every staff member has a story, show some compassion!! We have single moms working two jobs to make ends meet, employees with medical issues who can’t afford your medical package....appreciate your employees...there would be no Fortune 500 without us!! You have phenomenal teachers, recognize them.

Better LEADERSHIP training for directors so they can support staff. Just cause a person is good in a classroom, gets a degree or CDA, or has worked in childcare for a long time didn’t mean they are good leaders.
