ECE Assistant (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 1 November 2017
If you love your child and care about their well-being, please do not enroll your child with Peekaboo.
Very minimal materials available, little to no toy rotation most are broken or cheap plastic, staff underpaid, processed & sometimes expired food for meals, mold and pest problem from several locations in GTA, zero financial assistance from Head Office, and overall a very upsetting level of care available to children.
Materials, menus, staffing, management, quality of care, dated atmosphere, health concerns, unsafe

the only workplace I know that you are required to find your own supply coverage if you cant find a person to cover you then you will be asked to come to work and the office will decide when to sent you home. Pay is not worth it to work like crazy. Staff are asked to clean the staff bathroom, mop the hallway,(when the kids are sleeping or you're on ratio, vacuum the carpet (because its not the cleaner's job) so you work here as a cleaner too, so if you wanna work here be ready to do some cleaning job. Management only cares about money and getting more children, not listening to employees. Staff come and go. Working with the children and their families is wonderful its hard to leave this place because of them but if the management doesn't show any support and care then that's the time to say bye. "You cant have a good daycare if you don't have a good staff foundation"
met nice people, enjoyable working with the children
There are 8 classrooms with children aged 6 months to 6 years old. I learned how to lead in a team, accept constructive growth tips, and manage my time between interactions with the children and filling reports that are required by Management. The hardest part of the job is learning to adapt to each child's specific needs while in a room of up to 24 children with only three staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is being a vital part of the children's growth and education. It is truly amazing to watch a child grow from infancy to be an independent child with much success in their future.
Long hours, a lot of expectations with no reflection in the pay structure
Quality child care impacts positive influence on children,parents,& educators.(Everybody)
Student Volunteer with ECE (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 November 2013
Hello, I worked with three co-workers in preschooler environment at Peekaboo child care center in Brampton.My co-workers were experienced in their fields,so I got feedback about my activities. I read and learned about behavior management policy too.Peekaboo curriculum is theme based and it represents an enjoyable moments in children's lives.The hardest part of the job was when I left Peekaboo child care. I mean to say that when my placement was going to finish and start my college. The happiest part of the job was everyday I began my morning to see young children. I learn lot from my experience, this is the main reason why I finished my diploma without take a break. Jaswinder

I enjoy working at Peekaboo. I enjoy working with children/families, co-workers are easy to approach and friendly.
Personally, the hardest part of the job would also be the best. Watching the children as they excel and graduate to a higher level program ( infant to toddler) Although it is sad to let them go, it is amazing watching them grow.
