The reason I stay for as long as I did was because I fell in love with the kids. I got to watch some really cool kids grow up, and it is beautiful. They bring me so much joy.
Aside from the kids... I've never met a more petty group of grown adults in my life. That goes for a majority of the teachers AND the administration. I have seen teachers and directors lie directly to me rather than own up to their own mistakes. I have heard endless amounts of gossip in the break room - concerning fellow teachers and children. If you don't have anything kind to say about the children you teach, don't be a teacher. Simple as that. If you cannot go a single day without telling a lie to your coworkers, don't be an administrator. Simple as that.
I am a child care worker with a CDA certification and love working with children. I plan on continuing to work there permanently. There is a warm and caring culture at EC3 which I find very supporting.
Educational Child Care Center is an early childhood education center and full day daycare setting committed to its children. The administration works with the staff to set goals and achieve them together.
