    I have been working at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The kids are by far the best thing about this school, followed by great coworkers!

    Cons

    The management is very two faced and will do whatever it takes to make you leave/quit if they don't like you. Money is never spent on curriculum materials for the classrooms! Ever! Even though the school charges the parents a curriculum and supply fee of $75 PER CHILD to get materials every 6 months. The pay is average with no room for advancement or raises, because, again, the school doesn't use the money on those kinds of things.

    Advice to Management

    INVEST IN YOUR TEACHERS AND THEY WILL BE INVESTED IN YOU! Learn how to better treat your employees!!!( it might help with the high turnover)

    Pros

    Children are wonderful. Great facilities to teach.

    Cons

    Ability to teach is hampered by classroom size. Glorified daycare. Management did not report employee taxes properly.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring uneducated staff, don't be surprised with outcome.

    I worked at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Kids R Kids - the management at the center I worked at was easy to work with and tried to make everyday a positive one.

    Cons

    The usual downsides - break area wasn't great so I ate lunch in my car. I was okay with that and I'm sure it varies center to center.

    Pros

    Having the pleasure to be around kids and watching them grow as well as teaching them.

    Cons

    No Benefits and not enough pay for the work expected. All Classroom ration are to high for one teacher. The entire management staff is friends and family.(NOT GOOD) Management preys on their weak employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the teachers when it come to how to make your facility runs smoother since they are the ones that are actually hands on in the classroom.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Working with children, no weekends

    Cons

    Ownership is a joke. If you aren't a favorite, good luck. Going to work all day for minimum wage is exhausting trying to meet the owners demands. The work load from curriculum to holding ratio to rarely getting out on time is impossible. You are expected to do so much while they do nothing in return for their employees. Benefits are a joke, no vacation time, and there is always a reason to complain or get written up. I have no respect for the owners of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Don't hire crappy teachers with the mentality that everyone is replaceable. Pay your teachers for all of the work you expect them to do. If you pay your teachers enough, the good ones will stay which will improve the massive turnover, please the families, and grow the business. It's not that hard to figure out!!

    I have been working at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff and coworkers. Fun kids, always something new and different everyday. Fast-paced for quicker days and opportunities for creative outlooks and educational techniques.

    Cons

    Short notice mandatory meetings. Not appreciated for actual encouragement of education in early learning facilities. Very limited supplies.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people have lives and voices and you need to put your workers first.
