Not a great place to work

Unprofessional workplace where nepotism is rampant. Why it is hard to find a sense of belonging. The job itself is an amazing one where you see you can make a difference. Enjoyed learning and teaching the Montessori methods.

Pros

Monday - Friday

Cons

Management
Was this review helpful?

Good teachers , low salaries , bad management

Management is so unprofessional, toxic environment where teachers only receive feedback through text message, never meetings . Cleaning of the entire school is obligated but not listed in your duties or contract . Salary is a joke, no benefits, no room to growth and all certification and courses are up to you.

Pros

Mon-Friday schedule. Pay holidays

Cons

Director with no experience, Poor management, low salaries, too much duties, toxic environment

Helping kids grow

I like teaching kids & interacting w/ them & it’s never boring bc it’s very busy. Though it’s hard to get time off bc we’re short staffed. Second, administration does not communicate well. So we’re left to figure things & coverage on our own.

Pros

6 weeks pay time off

Cons

Short staff & wear many hats extra work

Online courses paid 50%

5 teachers quit or walked out within 2 monthsnever enough staff, always skeleton crew, including unfit staff. Poor leadership, one sided decisions, double standard, breaks - but no breaks

Pros

Parking is good because it’s the church parking lot

Cons

Hardly any time for quick bathroom time

Great place if you love working with children.

Great job if you're looking into becoming a teacher or if you're a student. However, I thought that the pay was low for the work you're doing. I really enjoyed the people that I worked with, though.

Pros

Liked who I worked with. Management was fine.

Cons

Low-pay for what you do.

Find a diffrent job, do yourself a service and find a diffrent job!

I worked in both location for two years there is no clear direction , the administration take advantage of you and force you to do job outside your skill or responsibility too much pressure from the director to please the parent and save them money lack of proper treatment or raise even when t was legally required. I got paid little and was expected a lot and no overtime for the times you are required to stay and work or take work home.no job securityI worked here and Ive seen many had worked and come through here and left! There was a reason.JUST STOP! the teachers are underpaid and over stressed and sometimes treat the kids badly, and the boss just cares about saving face not solving the actual problem.

Pros

None

Cons

So many

working in Montessori School was very Educative and interactive. I learnt how to handle students with care, love, and respect.regardless of race,religion or culture.The hardest part was working for many roles at the same time.The most enjoyable part of the job is keeping up with School expectation.

Pros

Free medical cover, and free lunch

Cons

Insurance

Great people, poor pay

Work life was good, teachers and kids were great. Some parents felt a bit entitled and up themselves (which was reflected in their kids). I had kids at giants head school and they were picked up by the Montessori after school program which was a fantastic benefit.

Enjoyable school to work at

I really enjoyed my time at Montessori. The school had a nurturing environment. All my coworkers were a joy to be around, and I learned a great deal from the teachers there. All in all it was a very fulfilling job.

Poorly run, dirty, and very high turnover.

While the concept of Montessori school is fantastic, keep in mind that these are privately owned schools and run specifically by the owners. The level of cleanliness is below average, amazing they are “monitored” by LARA. They have a very high turnover of assistant teachers so the lead teachers tend to be very rude to new people because” you won’t last”.

I like the place

I like the company, the owner and all the teachers but I moved far from my work location so I need to go closer to my house. Overall I wish I could stay but I am hard to commute every day.
