Registered Early Childhood Educator and Assistant Supervisor in Streetsville, ON
on 24 October 2019
When You Love What You Do!
When You Love What You Do! They say when you love what you do, it no longer feels like work. Working at Kendellhurst has brought me so much pride and joy in my work as an Early Childhood Educator. It is a great feeling to be excited to come to work each and every day because I love what I do and where I work. I have been teaching with Kendellhurst Academy for five years this year. It has been an incredible five years of professional growth. I am currently teaching in the Junior Room as well as an Assistant Supervisor. The management team is so incredibly supportive. Their open door policy allows for a friendly atmosphere where I can share amazing moments, concerns and general inquiries. They were there for me each and every step of the way. They truly care for their staff and their passion for what they do is inspiring. The staff at all three locations are welcoming, kind and some of the most amazing people I’ve met. A collaborative inclusive work environment is promoted through professional development training, team building and special events among the schools. There is also a benefits plan that offers great coverage (including dental, vision and family benefits). Being a mommy myself, their philosophy “Nurturing the preschooler’s mind and spirit” really struck a chord with me from the very beginning. As it focuses on the growth and development of the whole child including their social and emotional growth. It is an honor to be a part of that. I am proud to say that my child has grown to love Kendellhurst just as much as her mommy. She joined me a year later. This is something amazing and I wanted her to be a part of it. While there is a focus on academics I wanted my child to be nurtured, cared for and respected as a whole. My heart swells with pride when she advocates for “The Virtues Program”. A program that teaches empathy towards others. It is a program taught at all three locations (preschools and grade school). This past Thanksgiving she said she was “thankful for friends, family and food” but also wanted to give back to others. When we went to buy items for the food drive event my child said “Mommy, this is being compassionate and caring for others. Families will have food to eat”. My child is growing to be a considerate, empathetic person and Kendellhurst Academy plays a huge role in that. Knowing that my child is being taught and cared for by a dedicated and compassionate teaching faculty allows me to focus on my work. The line of communication is always open to provide updates on how my child is doing and her day in general. Which is fantastic! If you are looking for a wonderful place to grow, build your skills as an educator and be part of something that is wholesome and good. This is it. This is the place where you can plant yourself and grow.

Incredible Work Place
Kendellhurst is an incredible place to work. I started working over a year ago at their different locations. The faculty at every campus works together like family across the board to ensure students are building upon what they have learned in previous years. Everyone is kind and ready to help. The best part is having that face-to-face communication with parents on a daily basis. You get to know the families on a personal level. The owners offer so much more to faculty than other schools. The benefits don’t just stop at health care but go above and beyond any other public schools I’ve worked at. We are taken care of continuously and efforts are recognized on an on-going bases, not just with verbal praise but with personal considerations, which really motivates us to keep giving our best. There’s always a chance to share your ideas as management is always willing to lend an ear. The school offers a great deal of opportunity to learn and grow both professionally & personally. I can’t remember a day where I didn’t laugh with my collogues as we shared in daily experiences. My only regret is not applying this school sooner.

Room for Growth!
I have been employed by Kendellhurst for 10 years now, and going strong! Within those 10 years, I have grown so much from being a supply teacher, to being a full time teacher in the Junior Room, Senior Room, and now the Pre-K room. I have also advanced myself to an assistant supervisor. Throughout my transitions, the Kendellhurst management has been and continues to be very supportive. I have seen the growth in the school as well. Going from 1 location to 3 locations! More staff, means awesome benefits plan. This is very beneficial considering I am a mother, and the coverage works very well for my family and I. Working for Kendellhurst does not compare to any other schools (and that’s the honest truth). Come into our school, and you will see preschoolers who are respectful and engaged in day to day activities. Yes being a preschool teacher can be stressful, but Kendellhurst is different because of its exceptional program.We are given the tools and guidance on how to create a nurturing and peaceful environment.

Micro managing, toxic work environment
The micromanagement caused staff to always second guess themselves. Couple of coworkers were friendly but also false. Long days for little pay. After a year still no raise. Very rigid teaching format.
Occasional Teacher in Mississauga, ON
on 4 January 2019
It was a physically exhausting job; however, management was great at ensuring that teachers were given breaks throughout the day.
The work environment was friendly and co workers were always supportive of each other. The management was accommodating of people's schedules and ensured that there was always coverage available.
