    Former Employee - Center Director in Houston, TX

    I worked at Kindercare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Child care discount, autonomy, resources, support, benefits

    Cons

    The only challenges were the ones that are industry wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved how much flexibility and autonomy was extended to directors, and therefore could be extended to staff. If centers were performing well good things came to you. I am with Bright Horizons now and I regret there are no KinderCare centers in my area; KinderCare was by far a superior place to work!
