Expected to do way more than we are compensated for, it is hard to have a life outside of work because I get scheduled in for long days. I have worked 7- 6:30 shifts before. Gossip and drama is unnecessary but highly prevalent.

My coworker tried to get me in trouble by lying about something that I did not do to a child. Social services got involved and I waited 6 weeks without being allowed to come to work to see the outcome. All allegations against me were found to be unsubstantiated. I can no longer work with this coworker and left La Petite to find something better.

They said that the 2 year old class could be 1:10 but it always ran at a 1:12 ratio. Even if teachers said they did not want to be in that class, they were fired to anyways.
