Most enjoyable part is going to different centers its very good for learning different skills, activities, management, set-up etc.
I like to work with Expect A Star agency but sometimes they send us far away which is sometimes very stressful. Because I catch bus, train that's why its bit stressful sometimes to get their on time. But otherwise its fine.

A pleasure working for Expect A Star. Always had lot osf shifts, communication was great, extra training & courses available for free. Everything was dealt with in a very professional way. My experience with expect a star is very good but also very challenging as you don't know which centre you are going to and they normally just call you in the morning so you can prepare in advance

It is a good company if you are starting but the alert for job notifications for the day needs to improve for casuals, getting an app or website to access for availability rather than a sms
Pros
You get a job
Cons
Low salary

My experience with expect a star is good but challenging. As everyday I might be sent to a totally new centre that I have never been to and meet new staffs and children. But all the staffs and children that I have met are very nice and the staffs always offer help when I needed and I am growing experience in dealing with different situations and working with all kinds of children from different culture backgrounds and different family backgrounds.

I am a team player. Excellent communicator in all aspects with great administration and organisation skills.The most enjoyable time at my current job is being with the children support them and educating them into a better world.

Good experience for people who want to work part-time or casual. It is really good to go around to different daycares if you are keen on working in the early childhood industry.

I've worked with Expect A Star for 5 months and only worked 2 shifts. I constantly call but there is never work available. Staff on the phone are always helpful. Its just disappointing that there isn't shifts available.

Productive and worthwhile career but poorly paid so after gaining a teaching degree would be a severe cut in pay to return to the childcare industry despite the importance of the work.
Pros
Active engagement with chil;dren and making a difference in their lives
Cons
poor pay

I really Enjoy working for expect a star
its been my first role working with children

its a rewarding job and a lot of fun I enjoy teaching them how to draw or read.

we have a great team and the other employees are great to be around.


I continue to learn from children behaviours and how it reflects an adults behaviour


how rules and restrictions apply with good reason


the hardest part of the job is leaving
