I have been working at Kindercare

Pros

Consistent work, awesome Childcare discount (on tuition only), ease and ability to transfer to another location, possibility for promotion, work experience.

Cons

Larger corporation has a difficult time trickling down that home-like feel to each center, inconsistencies with each center running sometimes completely different than one another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the 'little people' since they are running the centers, value the teachers and Directors, find ways to genuinely say, 'thank you', ask questions that are logical, and trust those who know their center to run it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take pride in the teachers , and try to keep the good ones that you have. Just because a teacher does not have a paper degree, I believe 16 years of exp. =38,000 hrs working with young children, is more than any book or on line course can teach you. I have a keen understanding of the development of children, and can say I know them like the "back of my hand". Was told I could not recieve higher pay until I obtained a degree of some sort. Breaks my heart , would love to do so if I had the money to take the courses! Sometimes its like a no win situation. So please value the good teachers you have and take notice in their abilities and compensate them for their hardwork and knowledge.

    I worked at Kindercare

    Pros

    Its is a pretty good job with really good hours regardless the shift you are hired for, and the pay is pretty good if the center director likes you.

    Cons

    Most of the parents are rude and think you work for them, and the children are out of control and no action can be taken not even a time out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who you hire
