i was with abc for 5 years, am qualified and have directed a few. i haven't worked for ABC for a few years now and have been directing different centre's.
every centre is different, whether that be an ABC centre or another childcare buisness that has more than one centre, they are all different, you cant judge them all into the one group, thats stereotyping. i've worked in different ABC centre's and they have all been different. the main point that was a problem that i found in the centres was nothing to do with the quality of care to the children or staff ratio's etc..it was the management side of things. the buisness was soo dam big, being a director and being in charge of the running of the buisness you still had to go through head office...impossible, dead ends, time consuming, no replies etc. it wasn't the quality..it was the buisness side of it. they didn't take care of their staff. i think thats all i had better say lol.
of course when their are centres with staff issues it does come down to your director and what they put up with..speaking for myself i have very high standards and expect a lot from my staff, i expect every individual child to be treated as if my own, taken care of and respected as i would my own child, rules and reg's are followed and hygiene, safety, training etc are right up there, i don't put up with anything less.
depends on your issues..feel free to share your concerns you have and i can tell you your options. if something has caused you concern..follow what you believe is right, don't question it.might be fixed by simply having a chat with the director at your centre and making her aware of the issue so she can act on it immediately.
