Lack of upper management support.

Current Employee - Center Director
Current Employee - Center Director

I have been working at Kindercare full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Families and children were great to work with.

Cons

Very profit oriented and constant pressure to meet financial goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support your Center Directors! Upper management not always supportive of Center Directors day to day. Long term CD and had an issue with a staff member and upper management did not support me.

    I have been working at Kindercare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great team of coworkers.
    -Managers are constantly available for help as needed.
    -Open communication.
    -Consistent (mostly) schedule.

    Cons

    -Labor hours.
    -Transition of students from room to room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand numbers are always an issue, but we can't tell families one thing and then do the complete opposite. (ie. telling a family a student can't move up to the next room because of age and then doing it anyway.)
