Negative

Director (Former Employee) Edwardsville, IL

ProsI did not see any.

ConsI can not tell you all the negatives in 20 word minimum. Beautiful center - not child friendly or age or developmentally appropriate. Adult art work on walls, not children's. Owner talked bad about his employees during the interview and said why each director quit. Sexist comments made against women. Turnover rate high of staff, but owners don't understand why.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the way, and let people that know and are educated in child development education run the show. You do not run a successful school like you do a hardened corporate cold business. A time clock that dings you if 1 minute late does nothing but make your staff resentful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
