I have been working at Kiddie Academy

Pros

Hours are great
Staff is close
Owner is fantastic
Parent and kids are great
It's a job where you work hard, but also get to have fun

Cons

The hardest part of working there is almost constant drama. It's very "cliquey". If you can look past that, you will be fine.
Pay is rather low. Especially for a lead teacher.

    I have been working at Kiddie Academy full-time

    Pros

    Great looking school and doing very well financially. Director is very understanding and supportive. I haven't seen or heard much about corporate, but it seems most rules and regulations are up to the owner/director.

    Cons

    Because it's a franchise things will vary place to place. The curriculum is old and should be updated; and the location I work for will not let me write my own (other than occasional substitutions). Very strict time off policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please please update the curriculum. Many books cannot be found online or in stores anymore. Many activities/recipes call for nuts/peanuts and most schools are "nut-free zones" these days. The curriculum is also very obviously written for schools on the east coast.
