Pros

You get to work with great teachers and wonderful kids and parents.

Cons

However, this is a franchise so every school is going to have a little bit of a different management. And that is the issue here. The director is pretty rude to the employees and made the day to day much more stressful than it is needed.

Advice to Management

Give appreciation to your teachers. They are who are keeping the kids enrolled in the school.

    Pros

    All the teachers are amazing and truly love all the children and parents.

    Cons

    The owner doesn't know anything about children or education! The management is rude and careless about staff! As a teacher I felt like I had to act like I was walking on glass. The teacher turnover rate is unheard of! Management is all about quick fixes and putting on a front to make the situation seem better. They also don't allow the teachers to stay in md state law ratio because they don't keep enough teachers. The pay crappy too even if you have a degree!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your teachers with respect!


  2. Great place to work!

    Pros

    Awesome families who appreciate the teachers and everything we do. Owners and Directors are fair and really care about us both personally and professionally. Fun team building and outside activities. My co-workers have degrees and a ton of training...so I do not get the other reviews. Insurance, benefits, compensation, etc. all good.

    Cons

    Pay....but I get that this is the whole industry and not just my school. We have our accreditation so that means 24 plus training hours and most trainings are offered in the evening which makes for a long day especially with a family at home.

    Advice to Management

    Making sure afternoon staff take care of the room they are in and clean up. Find more subs
