Babysitter
Working as a babysitter was great, the kids were great, the parents were easy to communicate with. The only difficult part was if the kids were sick, I'd end up catching the same sickness they had. Also having to say goodbye to the kids was hard.

No longer a desirable company
Family Day Care Services was a desirable company to work for, offering competitive wages and supporting their staff. Unfortunately this has changed recently, lack of support and leadership from on-site supervisors.

Generally a great agency to work for
I worked as a daycare provider with family daycare services for 17 years . My experience was amazing . Great support from the supervisors; hands on learning through workshops . Very professional and positive experience.
2017/2019, I worked for the same outfit as a teachers assistant in a school for the before and after school program; generally the experience was positive .

Great workplace
This is a great place to work. Co-workers are friendly, salary is good (by comparison to other ECE salaries), and I have a lot of respect for the company. I wish, however, that it was easier to receive extra support for children with behavioral challenges, in a classroom setting.

Good benefits, poor management
The child care centres and drop-in programs are great places to work! The head office is chaotic. One administrative assistant is rude and obnoxious and the other is kind and professional. There are staff working in human resources and accounting with no formal education or experience. A lot of staff spend their time walking back and forth to the break room to socialize. The benefits and pay are good (health and dental) with lots of paid time off (sick days and vacation).
Pros
Great work/life balance
Cons
Poor Management!

Stressful and unflexible
I am looking for another job in my field as a result to my supervisor moving me to another room which I asked for a transfer from a year back. I also applied for a transfer to another childcare, but that was turned down as well.
