Financial Management Specialist I (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 10, 2018
This company let me go after having surgery with no explanation other than my FLMA didn't start for another week. I felt that was very unfair. To say the least it taught me something about the company values.

It provides an excellent work environment.If working with families in need is your passion this is the place to start. Serving others and children are my passion and at ChildCareGroup I got to work with both. It was a great experience working with the families and staff is its most part great.
Productive and fun place, with energizes children willing to learn and as a teacher willing to teach.
Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) – Martin Luther King Dallas – April 19, 2017
My day starts when I enter the building and into my room, welcoming the children and always willing to hear them out. Circle time is important early in the morning, there is where we learn most of the things that are needed to be prepared for Kindergarten. We also transition into different areas in the classrooms where the children's imagination opens up and they can be free to go wherever they desire to go inside the different areas.Making them feel independent means a lot to them as far as choosing their activities, unless we have a classroom activity together. Lunch is also a learning experience, we talk about the different tastes of food that are provided. Nap time is well deserved to get them some rest and to get up energized from their nap. preparing to receive our parents we also have an activity for them, they will go and pick up their names and place them at the (home) picture, ready to say good bye. The most enjoyable part of my day is when they are learning a little bit every day and seeing their progress as time goes.
ChildCareGroup is an excellent organization to work for and I act as a sub when required.
Early Childhood Center Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 24, 2015
A typical work day for me started at 6:30am or 9:00am and ended anywhere from 3:30pm to 6:30pm depending on the schedule for the day. I learned that the individuals that we worked with needed aid and help from key social service agencies. I managed a team of nineteen. My co-workers consisted of other Early Childhood Center Managers over the city of Dallas. The hardest part of my job was not always being able to provide all the services to those who needed them because they did not meet the guidelines. The best part of my job was to encourage and enable the staff as well as the families I worked with to grow.
Health Specialist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 20, 2014
I was responsible for the upkeep of around 300 Early Headstart and Headstart health records. I had to make sure the children were up to date on their shots, physicals and dental. I performed health screenings. Sometimes I would have to go on home visits.

My job at ChildCareGroup was very interesting and no two days were the same. If you have the heart and enjoy helping people, this was the job for you. I learned having patience for the internal as well as the external customers was always needed, because you never know who is utilizing our services and all information was confidential and was not to be shared. And knowing when to have a little empathy and go the extra mile for a customer can sometimes make your day and sometimes not. Because we worked 8 hours or more a day, your co-workers almost becomes your family and having the "teamwork, makes the dream work" motto, it keeps you focused on your goals. Having a management team that encourage staff to give their input, since they're the ones doing the job, it gave staff a sense of being heard or acknowledged. The hardest part of the job was telling parents when they were not eligible to receive child care or that we did not have any funding. And the most enjoyable part was when we had additional funding to place families in care that had been waiting on the wait list for child care assistance. That's a phone call you don't mind making or taking.

When there were no funding, phone lines were overloaded.
Child Care Group was a very interesting and fun place to work. I enjoyed working with the children in my care. Seeing how the learning process worked and how lovable the children were. It is always exciting to see children discover and learn new things.
Teaching the children, and seeing them get what they learned
