    Pros

    Good and easy job, kids are well managed. I felt like it was a rewarding and inspiring career field.

    Cons

    Money low for the work you do. You will feel dead exhausted by the end of the day without much benefit. Management can be annoying at times.

    Pros

    Very organized and scheduled. Kids were fun.

    Cons

    There is no punishment here so there is no protocol for when a child misbehaves. It sounds great on paper, but in the classroom it's a disaster. Not worth the pay.


  6. As good as the owners

    I worked at Primrose School full-time

    Pros

    The company has great educational philosophies, and really makes you want to work for them. "Approach each day with joy" is one of their taglines.

    Cons

    Each location is only as good as the franchise owner(s). The company doesn't seem to do much to keep them in line. If they are doing things that are against company or even state policy, corporate seems to turn a blind eye, even if the owners are inexperienced in ECE.

    Advice to Management

    Especially if you are inexperienced, trust the knowledgeable people you hire. Don't get upset with them if they are trying to lead you in the right direction where state policies are concerned.

    Pros

    Your own classroom
    Already Made Curriculum
    Smaller ratios
    Scheduals are very easy to mange through out the day

    Cons

    once you get in ratio you have to float until your clock out time. Even coming in the mornings I have to float.
    Depending on the area the kids are very spoiled and will demand things.

    Advice to Management

    More teacher appreciation/ recognition
