Brightpath provides quality programs that are constantly evolving and updating to meet the needs of the families. Very collaborative between staff and management and education coach to create an outstanding environment for learning and growing as an employee.
Working with the children is the highlight to this job. The children make the days enjoyable. However, seeing as i had no child care experience, i was given no training and was directly put into the room , I was not shown around as to where i should get the things I need. As it is illegal to be out of Ratio, you have to contact management to be able to use the washroom. In my experience i was either not able to get ahold of management at all, or would wait 2 hours to have them say they forgot about it. They are regularly short staffed meaning if you have an emergency and are unable to show up for work, ,management would question your reasoning and threaten for disciplinary action. If someone was to call in sick, management would talk poorly about said person to other employees. A fear for many was what management was saying to their coworkers about them behind their back. When we would ask for more food for the children management would refuse it to us. If you are working for Brightpath they give you 1 hour for planning and then expect you to take the work home and complete it unpaid. If you did not have the planning for the next week completed, rather than management having a conversation with you they would post a note on the public schedule for all employees to see with writing that stated what you were missing and a statement that read "This is your Job".
This was my honest experience, I do believe I would have enjoyed my time at brightpath if there had been more support from management to its employees.
