I have been working at Children Of America

Pros

Great fairly new facility. Hours are perfect for a teacher looking for part time work. Diverse student body. Not much else

Cons

Management is far too lax. Not enough disciplinary support for teachers and little accountability for irresponsible teachers. Also inconsistent in providing hours, breaks, and notification for changes in the schedule

    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 Management

    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

    Children of America is a beautiful facility with an awesome curriculum and plenty of resources for teachers. Also corporate provides and abundance of training.

    Cons

    As an experienced teacher with an impeccable record I am writing the first negative review of my life. Job seeker please heed my advice: DO NOT WORK AT THIS LOCATION! Director did not listen to teachers regarding needed support and unsafe conditions for children. Illegally mixed age groups. When asked the director for support for a child with additional needs who was extremely disruptive, I was told to just "deal with it" since I was within ratio. The children are moved back and forth from one age group to another to stay within ratio. Everyday 18 month old children are put in with 4+ year olds. Focus of management was appearance of building over welfare of children. Unrealistic expectations of employees --mop entire building upon closing, close own classroom, care for children while assisting parents as they pick up children-- the next morning employees are berated for not clocking out within 10 minutes of last child. The employee morale at this location was very low due to employees being criticized on a regular basis. Worst of all if an employee calls in sick the director will slash that persons hours so he/she does not have work for the next 2 weeks. TERRIBLE TREATMENT!!!

    Advice to Management

    Replace this director with one who can create a happy working environment. This will result in happy children, happy parents and a Full child care center. Good luck!
