Abstract The increasing number of the dissatisfied teachers and the loss of interest in the teaching profession in ABC Management, if not addressed immediately, will affect the education of the young generation adversely. Thus, investigating teacher job satisfaction at ABC Management is important and identifying the factors may minimize the dissatisfaction of teachers and increase teacher retention. The study investigated the effect of the critical factors of teacher job satisfaction and determine the impact of the teacher job satisfaction on employee loyalty in ABC Management. Satisfaction factors are empowerment, supervision working conditions, rewards and, training and development. A questionnaire survey involving 112 childcare teachers from ABC Management was conducted. A series of one-way analyses of variance revealed statistically significant differences on teacher job satisfaction or employee loyalty based on length of service or basic salary. This study indicated that there were significant correlations between all satisfaction factors and teacher job satisfaction. Rewards showed the strongest and positive relationship with teacher job satisfaction, followed by supervision, empowerment, training and development, and working conditions. Results from the Pearson Correlations analysis on satisfaction factors and employee loyalty showed that there were significant correlation between all satisfaction factors and employee loyalty except working conditions. Rewards showed the strongest relationship with employee loyalty. Hierarchical multiple regression for the influence of satisfaction factors on teacher job satisfaction revealed rewards, empowerment and, training and development – were statistically significant predictors of teacher job satisfaction.Rewards was the best predictor in teacher job satisfaction. Another hierarchical multiple analysis where demographic variables and satisfaction factors were controlled, results showed that rewards and teacher job satisfaction were statistically significant predictors of employee loyalty. Teacher job satisfaction only partially mediated the relationship between satisfaction factors and employee loyalty, it recorded a higher beta value than rewards. Results from the regression analysis for the influence of demographic variables on employee loyalty demonstrated that age significantly predicted in employee loyalty. Attention to rewards, empowerment and, training and development, can reduce the job dissatisfaction often experienced by childcare teachers. This has the potential to solve the problem of high turnover, which lowers the school effectiveness and puts young children at risk.
