    Pros

    Kids are great, very clean and up to standards Monday through Friday schedule, holidays off

    Cons

    Extremely low pay even for a lead teacher, all money is paid into management. Managers are extremely rude and do not respect employees. Get angry if you are sick and call in. No room for creativity in the classroom, no materials for the room, of you have an idea for the classroom your not going to get to do it

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, don't treat them like dirt

    Pros

    I love watching the children learn, take their first steps, speak their first words. It can be very rewarding. It's fun to decorate your classroom with the monthly themes.

    Cons

    Too much work with little assistance, materials and pay. Directors often purposely over-enroll in order to make more money, which means that it takes longer for the younger children to move up into the next classroom. A lot of gossip. Management seems desperate to hire anybody which leads to a lot of inexperienced workers who quit without notice after short amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more support to your staff
