    Pros

    Great environment for kids, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and the summer packet includes a lot of educational lesson plans for the kids to do during their off time.

    Cons

    The student to teacher ratio for children 5+ is 14:1 which can reasonable, but ages 2-5 is 12:1 which is a high for that age group.

    Very chaotic. We're low on employees so we are constantly bumping and moving children around.

    Pros

    I love the family and creative learning environment.

    Cons

    Unorganized, low pay, and lack of director employee communication.

    Advice to Management

    Better empathy shown towards employees. More encouragement and communication to employees about what to expect and how the center could be better. Only bumping and moving kids when necessary.

    Pros

    You get the FREEDOM to really make the class your own as a teacher. I feel like I am able to be creative there. ALSO the class sizes are decent. I WOULD recommend this company for a teacher starting out to get some experience, but longterm? I WISH I could say differently. I'm not sure.

    Cons

    The salary, let's face it isn't really all that great. As NICE as the management is, the company could be structured WAY better. I don't get the materials I really need. There is also ZERO professional development. Good lord, their ONE professional development day for the company was a joke. There is no way to advance myself professionally in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication would be great.

    Pros

    Good rapport with co-worker's, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Im sad �� to say that I was extremely disappointed�� with how poorly I was treated once it was decided that I was not going to politic how the wanted me to. Management is out of control on all levels. They are all adhering to their own made up rules. If I wanted to be promoted I had to approval from my manager. The person I wasn't getting along with. He refused to allow to move forward. Management treats their favorites great but if you don't make it to the click than you can forget a career or advancement of any kind. Hr participates in this as well. There is back lash constantly and there is nothing the employees can do. The turn over rate is extremely high, which I've never seen in a corporate environment.
    The field management is worse. The constantly lie, are demeaning, and disrespectful. I had a district vice president refuse to speak with me because I wouldn't give her what she wanted fast enough. The company has potential to be great but if they don't get their management under control it's going to become very problematic for them. In addition, there is barely diversity in the company. A handful out minorities at the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs better business practices and accountability for their poor decision in connection to their employees.

    Pros

    Work is fulfilling. It is wonderful to see the children grow and learn.

    Cons

    Overbearing middle management. They all seem to be stuck in a holding pattern and are very unhappy about it.

    Advice to Management

    Let your people do what you hired them to do. If it works let them do it. It does not have to be done the way you did it. It's about outcomes.
