Current employee at Childtime

Lead Preschool Teacher/Team Lead (Current Employee)
Lathrup Village, MI

I have been working at Childtime Learning Center full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere are opportunities to advance from teacher assistant up to management. I have done this. I started as assistant teacher to Team lead in 3 years. I am part of management now. I enjoy my job very much. I love giving tours to potential families. I love what I do and love to show it off to families. My passion shines through and it also shows in the children. I am now Teacher of the Year and very PROUD. Anything is possible. Love what you do and you will reap your rewards.

ConsA downside is when a co-worker calls off and the staff all have to put in a little more work to compensate for that but it all works out.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up Staff morale which can be difficult at times but when you have happy and appreciated teachers the work environment just flows so nicely

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work but...

Lead Preschool Teacher/Team Lead (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Childtime Learning Center full-time for less than a year

ProsGet off early, breaks, breakfast and lunch provided, nice and helpful staff.

ConsThe only con I have is the fact that when I accepted the job I was told I would work 12:00-6:30 however when I arrived for orientation I was told I would work 7-7-4 which is a drastic change. I feel that I was tricked into accepting the job. I was guaranteed the 12pm shift because they needed a person at that time only to find out that wasn't true. I'm working out my schedule with the general manager right now so I can get back in school. The pay is also very low for a person with a bachelor's.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell the truth about what hours you need your staff to have. Offer competitive salaries.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
