    The kids are what make you stick around... Despite working few hours for little pay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBeing given the opportunity to teach standards based material that is focused on fun. Classroom instruction is run formally, but you also get the chance to play and enjoy lots of much needed recreation with the kids. This job provides great experience if you are working towards becoming a certified teacher. The satisfaction you get from this job will come solely from the relationships you build with the children and families.

    ConsThis is not a job to keep long term. No possibility of a raise or increased hours. You are expected to write curriculum that often requires time outside of the work day; they say that you need to do curriculum on site but then don't provide the time to do it. Sites are often understaffed, causing stress and strain on the available staff. They hire mostly high school graduates / college students and it shows. Much of the staff lack common sense and/or simply don't care enough about the job, leaving most the work to those who do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward employees that are responsible and trustworthy with raises or bring back the head teacher position.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great mission, not so great upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company spans most of southern California, so it makes a huge impact. The programs are well thought out, and the children are the main priority. Unique and passionate instructors and lessons, and its clear that everyone here is good at, and cares about their job.

    ConsEmployees are under-compensated, and under-stimulated, and often stressed out. Upper-management seems paranoid.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
