This is a small day care located at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. Most of the work colleagues are hard working individuals who have worked here for a longer period of time, in order to ensure financial stability. Despite of that, Kindercircle Day Care is a hostile and toxic work environment for a certain reason which I cannot specify furthermore. However, given the following information I hope you can puzzle this certain justification. Your mental health and well-being is more worthy than this place and you do not want to jeopardize it here otherwise. Calling in sick, requesting time off and vocation is a hassle NO MATTER what the circumstance is, period. Your voice and competence as a working individual is always insufficient; meaning what you say or do with confidence means absolutely NOTHING. Working with children in general is already an exhausting job as it is. Honour my advice and experience at your own glory hands because being in an environment like this is NOT WORTH anyone’s time and more importantly energy. Please take your time and seek elsewhere where you will be truthfully appreciated and valued as an employee. All the best!
Pros

Cons
Toxic work environment, paid parking.

Everyone was incredibly friendly and dedicated to their work. The clients and their families always came first when making executive decisions. I really enjoyed volunteering here as I felt a strong sense of community membership.

As a dental hygiene student, I had the chance to shadow and assist in the dental department of Holland-Bloorview. We provided dental services with children with mental and/or physical disabilities as well as adults that worked in the hospital. A typical day at the clinic included a huddle in the morning, providing scheduled appointments, observing surgeries, and retrieving patient paper files. The hardest part of the job was to provide services to the patients without causing any harm, as some would have violent or aggressive movements. The most enjoyable part of the job was being to help in any way to improve the oral health of the patients.

I thoroughly enjoyed working here with every staff member. Everyone was friendly, encouraging, supportive and really really helpful. I felt like this was a big family. I learned a lot working here. I had a change of perspective on many things in life. The management was friendly, understanding and amazing. The workplace culture was one of acceptance, regardless of where you come from or who you are. I enjoyed interacting with some of the doctors and also some of the children there. They also have celebrations for every form of festival, from Pride, to Caribbana, the list goes on. Lots of free food too during the festivals!
Pros
free food, happiness, peaceful, stress-free, lots of supportive staff
Cons
cannot think of any

The overall culture is good and most people who are not on the senior leadership team are great. Some of the leaders however engage in politics and obfuscation such that it is difficult at times to know what they want or how they feel. It is toxic to many who like clear and concise leadership.

Being a former patient at Bloorview made working at the hospital all the more rewarding. I feel like I made a difference by relating to the in-patients because I had been there before.
Pros
