    I worked at Kindercare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with the kids, they were what truly made the job enjoyable.

    Cons

    My boss was horrible. She was more concerned about numbers than the children. She would have me make her food from the kitchen and then get mad if anyone else did the same. If we put coffee out for the parents, staff was not permitted to drink it. If someone else covered for you on your day off, you were still responsible for their actions. The extra learning classes (spanish, cooking) never happend like they were supposed to, parents paid extra for these classes but because of poor scheduling, an entire class would receive the class because I had to do it for everyone not just the few who paid for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the children and get better management.

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

    Pros

    The children. Thats about it. No one goes into preschool education thinking that its going to be easy or lucrative, but the best thing from the day is the children -- if only teachers of the youngest were appreciated.

    Cons

    I left because of the lack of timing payment of overtime. when you make so little, that extra is essential in making ends meat. It was not a warm place to work, but rather you felt the stress of a corporation EVEN though the focus should be the children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your teachers without talking about the monetary bottom-line you have to deal with. If you didnt make your enrollment quota, then support your teachers not share the administrative pressures on them. Its poor management.
