I worked at Children Of America full-time for more than a year

Pros

Better money than most childcare companies, the company tends to promote from within for the most part, you have some say in what ages you work with

Cons

Disorganization within management = chaos for the rest of us, kids get bumped around into different rooms far too much, too much "flexibility" for parents (ie, parents choosing which teacher they get, whether their child's friends stay in the same class, when they transition into the next room etc)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get organized, and make policies.... then stick to them!

    Pros

    Great teachers, good families and wonderful kids

    Cons

    poor pay, poor benefits, illegally mixing different aged children, directors would adjust hours to make their bottom line look better, lesson plans are not complete, and just treating employees poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people - a majority of your teachers want to do well and work hard. Your lesson plans and classroom set-ups hinder creativity and growth within the center. In the long run you are doing yourselves a disservice and eventually parents will catch on and find new places to take their children.

    Pros

    the kids as in any daycare

    Cons

    no yearly raise, corporate micro manages everything, kids shuffled around WAY to much, management has way to many responsibilities but yet can't utilize extra staff because corporate cares too much about overtime and payroll

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a look at the people you are hiring and people you are neglecting without us you dont have center take better care of us
