Micro-managerial style that gets passed continually down the line from head office through to director and then those below. Hyper-focus on ideological debates and minor issues, leading staff to concentrate their efforts on things that didn't matter, instead of keeping the children at the forefront of their mind. Some educators were completely disengaged from their work and either not responsive or hostile to constructive feedback. Not much done to manage their performance. Two tier system - staff in kindergartens have superior working conditions compared to their colleagues in long daycare.
