    I worked at Goodstart Early Learning part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Close to home - Supportive parents - Good pay - Flexible hours/shift change with reasoning

    Cons

    - Management needs to be improved - Area managers didn't ask for my opinion when doing the room (I was leading for almost 1y without a room leader) and when I said their plan won't work (bc I have tried), they got upset and told me to try anyway - If you're on the earliest shift, you don't get have paid for the first 30mins - The room was too small but they insisted on having 13 children in it - The kinder teacher refused to let the toddler children transitions (even though they have SO MUCH SPACE), delaying other rooms transitioning
