School Age Child Care Head Teacher in Reston, VA

Individual centers
Each center is different, mine is awesome but not all are as great as others. There is a lack of communication from the central office to the individual centers.

Great people and job security. Board runs most decisions. County provides good guidance for employees. Co-workers are great and very supportive. Commute can be tough but they encourage compressed work weeks and telecommuting. Pay could be better when compared to private sector.
