Great Place to work!

I've always looked forward to going to work at Tiny Hoppers. There has been a change in management, which has made the environment a lot more positive and enjoyable. It feels like family. The staff are well supported and the management team really shows their appreciation - almost monthly - with different activities or ways to thank them. Every day is different, but it's always fun. There are multiple workshop opportunities to further advance professional development. We have a great team with low turn over.

Pros

Staff appreciation

Cons

Sometimes long days

Do not recommend working here

Owner and management were very unprofessional. They do not care about ratios and new COVID guidelines. They frequently show favouritism among the employees. They have unprofessional boundaries and delegate their job to their employees. Work culture is toxic, unsupportive, and overwhelming.

Pros

kids are great

Cons

no respect for the employees

I feel so sorry for those families...

My interview? "Can you be here every day for 7?" That was IT. No questions about me experience, why I wanted to work for the company, nothing about me, zilch. My first thought was "If my child were here I would want more screening for educators." The staff there were all young with no educational or working background working with children, which was evident when they failed to count the children on field trips, said the children's faces were "gross" if they had food on them or needed a tissue and made outrageously racist remarks towards them. They would stand around talking about which kids were cute and which they couldn't stand IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN. When I pointed out concerns they ostracized me. They did not like being advised about how they should model positive behaviour and language in front of the children. I was only trying to look out for the safety and security of the children. They give you an impossible amount of work to complete DURING YOUR BREAK (which is illegal!) or during the time you should be helping the children fall asleep. One day a child fell and hit their head because they were jumping on their bed and the educator didn't see them because they were busy sweeping and mopping when they are supposed to be attending to the children! They ignored ratios frequently so that "friends" could go on break together. 1 educator in a room with 24 children and they are too busy doing cleaning and writing in journals to see one fall off their bed! The music was so loud she didn't even hear her wailing... luckily the chef walked by and saw her on the ground! - 

Cons

too many to name!

Excellent management and workpalce

Upper management are extremely nice. I can see they are aiming to have a culture of caring for all staff. This is definitely a place I would want to stay long term.

Terrible place

Lots of gossiping/trash talk about other workers in the centre, a very negative atmosphere. They did have uniforms which wasn't too bad as they were provided by them. Hours were decent as well. They had good part time options.

Amazing team!

This place has an incredible team, from teachers to owners. The environment is fun and positive. Although it’s a demanding job, everyone works so well together! The care, support and level of involvement from the owners really makes this a wonderful place to be!

Pros

Staff and owners

No work, life, balance- stress

In theory this daycare seems to be all anyone would want to fulfill a goal of lifelong learning and childcare development; however, this is not the case as the management are intimidating, rude, demanding and unhelpful. The wage is not competitive enough to meet the daily expectations of life, and it is run as if it's not a team environment.

Terrible work atmosphere

Lots of gossiping about other staff members in the room I worked in, not much attention on the children. If you were a Level 1, you were treated like a maid basically, whereas other centres it doesn't matter what level you are, you are a part of the team and decisions in the classroom and work together, at Tiny Hoppers if you are a level 1 you will be only scrubbing the floors and cleaning shelves while the other staff take that time to relax, gossip and trash talk.

Time at Tiny Hoppers Riverside South

I started there in January and I was a bit nervous because I met a lot of workers but by the end of the first and second week I wasn’t nervous. Everyone is like a family there

Good

A great place to work, the pay is not the greatest but the job itself is satisfying. You need a lot of patience with the children and have to be prepared to entertain all day. This job is great for someone who loves children & being on their feet all day chasing after them. You will fall in love with this job if you come into the day with a positive attitude!

A great experience and very meaningful interactions.

I have worked for this company for many years and have taken my experience to heart. I had many great connections with staff and parents. However, I have always been disappointed in the management skills and conduction of the center.

Co-op Student

My experience as a co-op student at Tiny Hoppers was pretty enjoyable, management was very friendly and so was the employees. Employees were always willing to help me out with various tasks and the kids were just fun to be around.
