I am a former employee at Little Vikings. I, along with COUNTLESS other employees, have decided to resign and find another job. The staff at Little Vikings are treated horribly and therefore there are new teachers in and out of there constantly. This creates inconsistency for the children which can cause horrible behavior problems not only in the center, but also at home. There is inadequate space for the children outside of the center and although there is a promise to attend the park multiple times a day, it does not always happen. Parents are beginning to pull their children out of the center and place them in other childcare centers. The attitude that is put in the employees' heads about state licensing is that they are the enemy. That is not true. State licensing is there to assure that families' voices are heard and to make sure the children are being well taken care of. They are not the enemy and the fact that we are supposed to look at them as the enemy is mind-blowing and horrible. Employees are afraid to quit their job because of what Brenda has done in the past to people who say they are quitting. Please do not enroll your child in ALV if you care about the staff and your children.
