The director of Fred Meyer KinderCare is a horrible director. She is very controlling and manipulative. For example, she likes employees to give her at least five dates and times for an appointment and then she will pick the best one for them-no matter the urgency for the appointment. She bribes parents when there is a problem and she is worried they are going to leave. For example, she has offered free extra curriculuar classes to parents so they will stay or free weeks. Then she doesn't fix the situation and it ends up happening again.
The state of Oregon requiers there be a certain number of students to teacher. For example, in the toddler rooms there is suppose to be four children to one teacher. She is constently letting this ratio go over because they are under staffed. She never offers to jump into a room to fix this problem or to have subs come in. There are many people who have offered to be subs, but she claims they are not needed. (If CSD is reading this-go on a Thursday, that's when they are over the most).
This KinderCare is NAYC accredited, but it got there on false pretenses. She ran around to all the rooms and made sure we were telling the NAYC people the right things. Where ever they were in the center, she was there checking up on what people were saying.
She too allows children to come to school sick and they too charge for days children are out. Plus they charge half to hold a spot for a child going on vacation. However, that money is not put towards a future payment, so parents are paying for their child not to be there in case their spot is filled by a new student-which never happens.
KinderCare employees do their best and then they have to work with someone who won't work with them. Diana needs to be fired and the center needs to go back through NAYC truthfully.
