We know we can’t provide the highest quality care and education without the best early childhood educators. We want you to be a part of the U-GRO family, where our values of Serve, Grow, and Be Positive, guide everything that we do!
- Serve. We live a life of service.
- Grow. We strive to be better.
- Be Positive. We make a positive difference.
Transparency & Communication
We value transparency and relationships. As a U-GRO team member, your feedback will be heard and valued. Our quarterly survey allows you to tell us what we’re doing well and where we can improve. With regular team member feedback, leadership is able to take action and implement ongoing positive changes. Our monthly newsletter, U-Connect, is another way we maintain transparency and share with you what is happening across our 13 centers. The newsletter highlights:
- Company headlines, such as new center openings, special announcements, and more!
- Celebrations: births, marriages, promotions
- Curriculum tips
- Upcoming events
Advancement & Growth Opportunities
We fully support our teachers who strive to excel and want to grow with U-GRO. Maybe you’re interested expanding your experiences at U-GRO while still holding your current teaching position. In that case, these roles may be a good fit for you:
- Team Facilitator
- Curriculum Coordinator
- Safety Committee Liaison
In addition, you may aspire to take the next step in your career, in which positions such as Assistant Director, Center Director, or Area Manager may appeal to you. Whatever is next in your U-GRO career, we’re here to help you get there.
Celebrations & Recognition
You work hard to enrich the lives of young learners every day, and as a company, we strive to reward and recognize our team members throughout the year, through U-GRO’s all-inclusive recognition program – HEROES.
HEROES (Honoring Employees and Recognition of Excellent Service) is our all-inclusive rewards and recognition program here at U-GRO, which includes a variety of different initiatives to help us foster a culture of recognition! Some of the various ways we recognize our team members include:
- Service awards and anniversaries
- HERO of the Month
- Don’t Let Me Down awards
- HERO points – redeem for whatever you choose!
- Teacher Appreciation Week
- Annual Recognition Event
Our Annual Recognition Event is where we recognize what we’ve accomplished together as a company. Without you, nothing is possible. At this event, we present Superhero Awards, honor years of service, and celebrate YOU!
