What Our Teachers Are Saying...

SHBD is amazing! I was a PreK teacher there for 6 years. All the teachers are dedicated & caring. The curriculum is outstanding!

Working here has showed me how much fun working with kids is, and how creative I can be. The kids are very outgoing and the people I work with are willing to always help out if it’s needed.

I highly recommend working at SHBD Learning Center! Management treats you as if you are family. They show you that you are appreciated and I would encourage anyone to check them out!

I have been employed at Small Hands Big Dreams for 17 years, worked in just about every classroom and position there is (from cook to teacher to assistant director), and I can with 100% honesty say it’s the best place to work. Everyone is like family. I have made some life long friends with staff and with families within center. Those connections are priceless to me. There is so much offered to us as employees as well. This company truly values their employees and makes them feel appreciated. I wouldn’t want to work for anyone else.

Small Hand Big Dreams is a great employer! They have a fun environment that allows for growth in the company. They offer great benefits, there is room to grow in the company and work with staff and families needs. They send out surveys to see where the company can improve and take action in those areas by adapting, changing or adding policies! All directors, management and owners are involved in all the locations!

Management communicates with staff clearly. Everyone is very friendly and works as a team. The teachers and administrators are all very passionate about the work that they do. I genuinely feel appreciated every day at work! There is a great work life balance that I feel is rare to find. I never want to work anywhere else!

This is truly the best place I have ever worked. The Director is amazing. She listens to everything you have to say and approaches everything the right way.
The owners are very involved with each of their locations and are always on top of things.
The thing I love the most about this job is everyone's passion for the well being and learning for each child. Everything is individualized for each child and classroom and I couldn't ask for a better place to work!

I have learned a great deal from this job; how do handle children with behavior problems, think outside the box, and communicate effectively with others.
