KinderCare Education: Champions is a split shift schedule. The hours that are worked do not allow for full-time hours and not enough time to get the desired work completed to run a successful program. When hired, staff is educated on hours that are offered, but these hours are not offered. With a split shift, it is very difficult to get a second job. Unfortunately, during my time at Champions, I have not learned many new understandings within this field. Unless a staff member reaches out for training and support, it is not provided. Most often, when asked for assistance, the management teams does not reach out and offer training or advice. The management is very difficult to get in contact with and don't respond in a timely fashion to minimal questions or concerns addressed by staff. The culture in an individual location is presentable, however, as a company, not collaborative in any sense. The most difficult part of the job is the desire to make the environment fun and comfortable for the children and parents, with a non-supportive upper management team.
fun and welcoming environment, I learnt how to deal with parents and kids and how to engage with parents to inform them about how their child had spend his/her day and how they had gone about learning and improving in the activities they participated in.
