Limited staffing arrangements, no room for advancement within the company.
Children's Services Employee (Current Employee) – Perth, WA – 22 July 2015
Unfortunately the service I work in, owned by Affinity Education, has become only about money and not best quality service and staff to child ratios. Constantly shuffling staff to maintain ratios leaving us always under the pump. No opportunities for up-skilling available or advancing in careers with in the service. No longer an Oshc coordinator position available so the 2 floor staff have to take on the role with no extra time or money. Very unprofessional system.
No benefits or incentives for staff paying for own children in the service.
Affinty Education is an amasing company to work for
Centre Manager (Current Employee) – Currumbin Waters – 5 June 2019
Having worked in the Child Care Industry for many years, I have to say that Affinity Education is the best company I have ever worked for. I go to work each day feeling good as I know that we are respected and valued as staff members. Affinity genuinely care about the Education and Care of our children and the staff. Their Life -long Learning programs are not only for the children but the staff as well. Everyone has the opportunity to further their training in all areas, including yearly conferences with the very best of speakers. I cannot speak highly enough of the support given by Management. This company really look after their staff. They listen and hear what staff are saying and best of all they act on it. Affinity continually strive to go above and beyond by giving so much back to their centres. For the past few years working with this company I can honestly say that I have not had any setbacks or disappoinments.
Affinity is a fantastic employer, the support I have received over the last 5 years is excellent! Affinity supports training and development of their staff and has successfully created a culture of inclusion and engagement.
The support and development offered is fantastic.The culture is great!
