    I worked at La Petite Academy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy to get a job here, little experience needed. Okay benefits. Curriculum has been created for toddlers, twos, pre-school, pre-K, and school aged classrooms. Developmentally appropriate practice and content in theory (but not in action)

    Cons

    VERY Low Pay!!!!
    Lack of Respect for Employees!
    Management is not concerned about policies or DCFS guidlines.
    Generally over ratio!
    Typically don't get to leave on time.
    Management Targets Employees
    High Turn over (Teachers and Children)
    Teacher are not given time to prepare anything
    Have curriculum, but NEVER used!
    Not all employees seem qualified or knowledgeable enough to work with kids.
    Lack of team work from Cooks to Corporate positions!
    Lack of confidentiality!
    EXTREME GOSSIP even within upper management!
    Work hours per week and not secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher people that care about employees and know how to run a business. Stop focusing on labor hours and making money for Learning Care Group and worry about how well the children are cared for/attended to, how your employees are being treated, and supplying TOOLS and TIME for the teachers to use! CONFIDENTIALITY and PROFESSIONALISM!! Listen to your teachers instead of writing them off as liars or "just not the place for you!"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
