    Pros

    Fantastic balance of fun, nurturing, and professional environment. Utilizes own comprehensive hands-on curriculum and coworkers are willing to help you learn how to write lesson plans. Great families, great employees, great management!

    Cons

    Lead Teacher positions require a Bachelors' Degree for eligibility. This is great for recent college graduates, but may discount potentially better-suited care providers (especially regarding classroom management) that did not have the benefit of going to college.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, great job in providing a happy and productive place to work. It has been a treat to feel like I've made a difference in my local community.

  2. Not worth it! Stay away from the one in Haymarket. Poor pay.

    Pros

    Other fellow teachers made it fun enough to keep going back. Felt like I was making a real difference with the kids. Education program is very organized.

    Cons

    Management and owners are terrible. Horrible communication skills and known to twist anything for their own gain. I've seen them push out families with ridiculous excuses just to open new slots for new potential families. Allows them to make even more money with their registration and supply fees! Poor pay and poor reward system. Beware of working here it's full of drama!

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stop lying to everyone. I couldn't watch it happen any longer to these innocent families. You inconvenienced them for your own gain and felt empowered in doing so.

  3. Terrible management, high turn over, nepotism, and cheap owner!

    The pay, lack of employee/mgmt communication, no staff appreciation, dishonesty, more focused on the money than the children and parents' concerns, lack of proper sanitizing, and poor curriculum.

    Advice to Management

    CARE!

    Pros

    If you are really, really dedicated to ECE and love children, this is as good a place as any to work. Nice facilities.

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible hours, no opportunity to advance or get a pay raise, no matter how hard you work. The emphasis is on tuition dollars, and as a result you can expect your employer to sacrifice turnover. Rampant sickness, racist employees. Bottom of the barrel benefits.

  7. Great friendships!
