Get breakfast started, set up everything that I need to get out, serve the kids when they get in for summer camp, clean up and get lunch together, go grocery shopping at times, unpack and put up the items, past out the afternoon snacks. During afterschool program I pass out the snacks, clean up the area, bus, rotate bus monitor, and help where I was needed in the classrooms to help the kids with their homework.

A learning thing
Caregiver (Current Employee) –  Turlock, CAJuly 24, 2015
Work with kids that has been hurt it was hard at first now it easy because I learn how be a better person. In work with kids that been hurt management is different from a job that have stand all day because you have to be one on one with child to get him/her to truth you more. My co-workers is my parents. The hardest part of the job is makinf sure the child need is met at all time. The most enjoyable part of the job is to make sure that the chlid is happy and love.

Don't wast you time.
DSP (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn HtsMay 22, 2014
Koinonia was a wast of time for my career path. No support from supervisors or managers. I see why they are understaffed, the quality of supervisors are substandard. Individuals are aloud to steal your stuff, spit on you, hit or kick you and say anything too you, as long as the rules benefits Koinonia they will bend them. You are under paid and over worked. Their annual reviews are inconsistent as the supervisors, They will find every reason not to give you a deserving raise. This place has no foundation for growth. I truly feel the individuals are taken advantage of, they are placed in classroom setting like a learning institution and most can't recognize their own name, this is simply a day care for adults.
Pros
8 straight hours
