This place is merely a glorified babysitting job, it has a lot of glitz and glamour such as computers in the room and offers wonderful other curricular activities via Stretch and Grow, or Gigglebytes not from CCY themselves. I worked here for over 2 years (3 years ago) and all I can say is lies, violations, and sorry pay for teachers some who truly deserve it. Half the time they don't train a teacher on how to use the DLM curriculum they so fondly love to exploit to try to GET you in, most of the time the teachers are under the age of 21 and have never worked with children, the ratio they tell parents is a flat out lie most of the time we are at the max not to mention putting 24-27 children in a room not counting the 30-35 odd children in the after school room which is usually mayhem during the summer. All that CCY is concerned with is putting money in their pockets and paying the teachers maybe $8.00/HR and that's not counting the ""children"" under the age of 21 we are talking respectable teachers in their late 20's to early 50's. There is a constant turn over ,while I was there I know of at least 28 teachers I saw come and go. The only thing the old director was good at was working half days (the rest of the days she wasn't feeling well), and covering up lies. It's so sad in this day and age that a big corporation like CCY can't ""afford"" to help their teachers out by paying more and finding some better way for them to afford insurance for themselves. It's sad when a teacher can watch someone else's child but can't afford for their own. And the NAYCE thing you know the banner they have on their building is a joke.. the staff who work their behinds off to get that are no longer there from the director, assistant director to the staff their is 3 people there who was there when we received that .. 3 out of something like 25. I feel for these teachers because I use to be one of them. Good luck guys there is life outside the CCY, I'm living proof.
Pros: Teachers who I know who are still there are wonderful!!!!
Cons: Lies, Pay is belowwhat a teachers salary should be, HIGH TURNOVER!!!
