    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The management is great. You get to make your own menu and order whatever you want. For a cook, the hours are great. Working with kids is fun as well.

    Cons

    There is really no room for advancement. The pay and benefits are not that great. Besides that, I really have no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    If I could give any advice to management, it would be to try to keep the good people by offering pay and benefit incentives. Time after time, I see the best employees leave because they can not afford to stay.

    Pros

    Working with the children is great. Paid vacation and holidays, as well as weekends off.

    Cons

    Management is poor, unorganized and there is a total lack of communication between the front end and teachers. Management will quickly throw their teachers under the bus to save face in front of corporate, licensing and even parents. They don't care about their employees, they only care about making their jobs easier.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Organization, communication and fairness is key. Don't pick favorites with your teachers and be fair with everyone.
