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.

The worst time of you life working there. None of the girls where happy aside from our boss and the room leader who spent more days sitting in the office. We had little to no resources. The favouritism was over the top and very stressful. Trainees were offered no study time and no help or proper training. We regularly put complaints to management but nothing ever changed. When I left the other girls had also put in their own resignation. Leaving was the best choice I made.

I can’t speak for all LZ centre, but my particular one was a zoo. The actual programs and processes were great, but unfortunately due to management and staff, the centre wasn’t able to reach it’s potential. Work drama is beyond exceeding. I had reported a staff member who was neglecting her role and the care of the children, and instead of addressing her they let me go after I refused to take $1 more an hour it’s just a big money pit

It has been great joining the little Zak's team. They're very focused on ensuring you're happy with everything around you. They're also very strict (in a good way) with ratio, cleaning jobs, supervision and always interactions.
They're also amazing at following through with their reflection planning and ensuring the company and staff continue to thrive.

It was nice being welcomed and feeling like part of the family. I learned a lot on how to manage a centre more effectively being the 2IC, but i missed being in the Directors chair.

A typical day at work is,
moving the children from one room to another

- supervising and playing with them until all staff members have started

- nappy change

- feeding them morning tea

- starting the day off, with different activities every day depending if parents have written a child's interest or what they had did on the weekend, we would extend it for them

- doing arts and craft with them

- playing with them and doing more activities

- going outside for play time

- going inside and washing the children before lunch time

- sitting and feeding the children their lunch

- cleaning them after lunch and getting them ready for rest time

- nappy change

- during rest time employees take turn going on their breaks

- once their break is over we do some paper work while the children are still resting

- once all the children are awake, we change their nappies, put away their beds and put shoes back on

- we hang with the children for awhile and read a book to them before afternoon tea

- we sit with the children for afternoon tea

- clean up and get ready to spend the afternoon outside while we went for parents to come pick them up

- nappy change


i love working with the children and also other workers that i work with in the room.
Pros
Hour break, Workers, Arts and craft, playing with the children
Cons
Long hours

Organize and participate in recreational activities, such as games.
Observe and monitor children’s play activities.

Read to children, and teach them simple painting, drawing, handicrafts, and songs.

I learned to work in a team work or individually.

Ability to work under shift bases.

The management is perfect and helpful.

The hardest part is to look after 30 kids alone while my co-worker is absent.

The most enjoyable part is to play with kids and talking to their parents.
