Memorable workplace for friends and colleagues in Alberta
Child Development Worker/Teacher (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 May 2017
I was with Brightpath Acadia Learning Centre for almost three years and I do not have problems with my co workers or colleagues for we had a very good comaraderie and teamwork all the time. The work itself was very stressful and demanding when dealing with different children in various age groups. It really needs more of physical, social-emotional,mental/cognitive and other skills and experiences dealing with them depending on their growth and development as well. Overall,I still love my job and I learned a lot from it that I can apply to my own child,like the training and experiences which you can not get from schooling.
ECE Teacher (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 30 June 2019
So many better jobs out there! All they care about is money. The kids are secondary. They pay everyone differently and tell you not to tell anyone what your wage is. We have an IT making $16 because she doesn't know any better. They take advantage of the younger people, asking them to do things that the director should be doing. Also, they use the kids to get you to do above and beyond. They are DESPERATE for ece/it! They are constantly stepping people up that dont have the qualifications. Horrible company!!! Tell any parents you know too... their kids will be treated so much better elsewhere.
Forced OT, horrible pay, make you feel guilty if you call in sick, etc.

Terrible Kindergarten Program
Kindergarten Teacher (Former Employee) – Marlborough Park, AB – 26 June 2019
The person who runs the KG program is unprofessional and talks down to her staff. She humiliates them in front of parents and staff and goes out of her way to make her staff feel bad. The KG program has a high turnover rate because people are constantly quitting.
She does NOT have a B.Ed yet somehow she runs the program. They don't care about the kids. They only care about making money.
The upper management are rude and treat the daycare workers terribly. All around its just a terrible company.
Thank you for your review. We regret your experience. As a company we want to ensure that we have a quality environment for our staff and children. I would urge you to reach out to our HR department at contact email@example.com
