Area Manager in Sydney NSW

Great place to work and progress your career path.
Mr Zaki was an excellent employer and progressed his employees within the company if he felt they deserved this. I would highly recommend working for him.

Alright
It's a very fast paced industry I knew that going in but not having the staff to cover lunches study and programming is just too much added stress. The team have been supportive although they have their cliques they all support through the tough times and come out on top as a team

Beautiful staff members, and management are so helpful whenever necessary. Always looking for growing leaders.
My centre is a newly built centre and we have an amazing team, my managing partner has been my rock since day one and has always pushed me to grow. I would recommend to anyone looking for grow their position and wanting to grow more and more.

Extremely unhappy!!
I was excited to start my employment at Little Zak's. The Interview was a great experience, which made me feel positive about taking the position. Then I started working there!! I was overwhelmed from day 1! I have the skills to do the job, but it has been made hard due to lack of communication. Not given all, or the correct, information can be extremely dangerous when there are children with allergies in the centre. It is daily battle having to clean up other people's mess before I can start my own work. There is never enough staff, which means they don't clean up after themselves, leaving me more work. I was working an extra 3-4 hours (unpaid) a week for the first few months of employment until I organised my section to a more manageable time frame. I submitted a new menu, but was basically told it wasn't good enough. A month later, I was told Upper management had a new menu ready, without asking for my opinion. Even the CEO, Rich, was a little bewildered that I wasn't consulted.I voiced my concerned regarding the new time consuming menu, and how it may be shuffled around to fit in my working hours, only to be ignored- TWICE! I'm not even allowed to organise the recipe book to suit my needs. Clearly my time is not important. I am still employed at LZ, but my stress levels and blood pressure are way too high due to working here, leaving me no other option than to look for employment elsewhere. My experience has made me regret leaving my previous Childcare Chef position.I will miss the friends I have made here though.
Trainee in Bondi Junction NSW
on 18 August 2020
Would be an amazing centre to complete a cert III if there were more staff
The centre itself is amazing, with a large playground, and lots of activities in the rooms that encourage creative activities for the children. The children themselves are great, many are very loving, playful, vocal, and easily interested in knew topics or easy to get engaged in new tasks. Forming attachments quickly with the children can happen. A large centre, with a large number of children and not enough staff. As a trainee, we need to be mentored and trained from the time we start our work there, rather than floating around rooms filling in for staff who are absent, working in rooms that are understaffed, with staff who are amazing and qualified, but who are stressed and who don't have the time to mentor trainees. High trainee turnover. If you're lucky enough to get qualifications there, there are great career advancement opportunities. However, many of the things I was promised would happen as a trainee never occurred. I would recommend this centre for experienced and qualified childcare workers. I would not recommend this centre for completing a traineeship. Trainees are essentially on a job trial for 2 weeks, and only if they impress will the traineeship actually begin. The expectation for a trainee is incredibly high. Without any mentoring and very little training you are expected to be able to do the job well from day one. There is favouritism, and trainees are easily discarded if believed to be not the right fit, as it's a 6 month probation period. But you can be dismissed much earlier. Quick decisions are made about this and there is not much chance to prove your value, as you can be dismissed without any constructive feedback. And room leaders are not able to observe you with your group of kids in the large playground, as they are a distance away focusing on their own group of kids. In an understaffed centre there is a lack of mentorship, proper training, and fair appraisal of your performance.
