Brightside academy is one of the worst places to work in

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsNo pros at all except for the lunch and super which I think is making the kids over weight

ConsO Lord where should I start off, first they hire really ghetto people like seriously, the pay is not good, You have to do so much mop the floors, vacuum, teach the kids, design the classroom, take out the garbage, there’s see through windows so the parents can pop in anytime. It’s just ridiculous. For certified teachers this job is not worth your time and energy. Get another low paying job in another daycare not this and you’re going to be working with ghetto people in a ghetto neighborhood with directors who don’t appreciate your work and don’t understand your only human after a 9 hour shift including lunch with no pay it’s not worth your time and energy. The curriculum here is horrible the children don’t learn anything. PARENTS DON’T BRING YOUR CHILDREN INTO THIS DAYCARE. YOU WONT BE HAPPY.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome to New York observe the center and change your philosophy and curriculum. I really hope the government stops the funding for this organization because it’s not worth it at all and a uniform for certified teachers please.

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

    Over worked, Under paid!

    ECE Lead Teacher (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Brightside Academy

    Pros: It pays more that most other child care centers. Cons: Brightside does NOT like to consider itself a child/day care center.
