I have been working at Kindercare part-time (less than an year)

Pros

I love to teach children and Kindercare centers and classrooms are all designed to help your child learn.

Cons

They take a very long time to process your information and to tell you what day to start working. Be prepared to wait 3 weeks from the actual interview date before you get to start work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed up the employment process by cutting down how much time or many weeks it takes to run background checks and reference checks.

    I have been working at Kindercare part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Weekends and holidays off, most places are closed by 6:30pm

    Cons

    There is no team work among the teachers, most are just our for themselves, the children are left all day to be raised by other people. Directors are unprofessional and can not deal with any issues they feel are uncomfortable. Pay is horrible, pretty much no room for advancement. Some people are allowed to do whatever they want while others stick to the rules. The company severely limits hours and budget so that it is hard to even order paper for the children. I feel like I'm in a high school sorority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional, don't reward people for not doing their jobs.

    I worked at Kindercare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Kids are awesome, some good teachers

    Cons

    Teachers severely underpaid. Being accredited doesn't mean crap when corporate controls your budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay teachers what they're worth!!!!!!! Don't pretend you care about the kids when you make it impossible for teachers to earn a living wage, even those with experience and training. Give them paid planning time, don't cut rooms down to 1 teacher, and hire directors with the proper education.
