    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Childcare Network offers educational opportunities with room for growth. It also offers a comfortable work environment. I have learned many different skills that will help me throughout my career. I couldn't think of a better place to work. I love what I do and have fun doing it.

    Cons

    Sometimes when there is a change it is hard to adapt and it makes the job challenging. More team building activities would be a plus.

    Pros

    Although large in size of employees and wide spread, being part of the organization feels like you are part of a family. Each department within the company truly cares about what they do and each school and director cares about the children in their care, the families and their staff. You have the ability to really grow here and to really make a difference!

    Cons

    Being a company that is very forward moving, we tend to wear a lot of hats. To some, that may be frustrating, but if you like to work hard and help as much as you can, then it is exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Encourages new ideas and strategies to better the company and the work environment. You're not tied down to one way of doing something and everyone is open to new ideas. Very good at providing positive feedback as well as constructive criticism.

    Cons

    Since it is a growing business, the current corporate office is too small for the number of employees. But they are currently working on relocating to a bigger building.

    Pros

    Growing company with a focus on the care and education of children from infants to school age children. Each location has the opportunity to impact many children who would not typically have access to a quality preschool environment. Many of the staff have been with the company for many years.

    Cons

    Quality of each program comes back to the managment and staff at each facility. There are many fantastic schools out there with extremely dedicated staff.

    I worked at Childcare Network full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is very big on promoting within. If your performance is up or above standard it is very easy to advance within the company. Training is provided to ensure that you are providing quality education to the children. For the most part, achievements are acknowledged and rewarded.

    Cons

    Long term employees are allowed to get away with murder. DMs who don't provide the necessary support to their subordinates is in turn supported in shifting blame to their subordinates. Corporate does not listen to the anyone below the District Manager level when it comes to improving schools or employment issues. Work you like a dog and then fire you without any remorse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tenure should not equal ability to manage.

    Pros

    If you like working with kids, that's what you're doing. You're treated like a teacher, and are encouraged to further your education.

    Cons

    Low pay. The way issues are handled is completely wrong. DMs try to cover up issues in the schools by shifting the blame to the teachers instead of fixing the basic problems. Little budget to work with.
