    I have been working at The Learning Experience full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have been in the daycare profession for about 20 yrs. this is my first experience with a corporate owned site and I have nothing bad to say . I have dealt with several of the corporate managers and all very nice. I work at the montvale nj site and the management is amazing ! The staff I work with all truly care about the children . My experience there has been nothing but good in the almost 2 yrs. I have been with the company and as an added bonus I take my child with me who loves it as well .

    Cons

    The only thing I can say but more for the industry rather than specifically to Tle is I wish it was higher pay .

    I worked at The Learning Experience full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Children and parents were awesome, curriculum and facility was up to date

    Cons

    Management hires inexperienced staff just to pay low wages. Children not cared for in a professional manner. Most Staff clueless in early childhood education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a more competetive wage and hire experienced people! And higher management needs to monitor directors etc. have them treat teachers with respect and appreciate their worth. Maybe you'd hold onto REAL teachers

    Pros

    It is a steady paycheck

    Cons

    All about money. Franchisees/center owners are cool, but being part of a bigger corporation makes them all about profit

    Current Employee - Co-Teacher in Lewis Center, OH

    I have been working at The Learning Experience full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The children/parents are the only positive things that I "experienced".

    Cons

    Company values? None. the only things that corporate/management cares about is money. I have worked here since Fall 2014-now, and am looking for something else. Anything else. Children's needs are put at the bottom and employees are treated like temporary expendables. My co-workers have been cheated of hard earned money, I have been lied straight to my face by management and I have never felt more worthless at a place of employment. They even were 2 days late on getting us our paycheck once, and said "it's not our fault." And no benefits, of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put children's needs at #1, and give employees a reason to stay. (A THANK YOU, Christmas bonus, respect, ect.) Pay them what they deserve and don't cut corners that make you 'look good' but make your employees jobs harder. Follow through with your promises.

    I worked at The Learning Experience part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for such a company that have same vision that I have as far a early education goes is so wonderful. Pay was good I had great chances for advancement...

    Cons

    some days teacher call sick and we have more kids than we should . We need more substitute teachers I guess for those days...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know its hard to find the right staff for such a great program and curriculum but please don't hire those who are here only because they need a job. Please hire only truly passionate people who really like to work for these families and young kids...

    I have been working at The Learning Experience

    Pros

    The children are the reason to love this job!

    Cons

    Total lack of training. They also ask you to work, and then say they don't need you, but expect you to be on call!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some experienced managers in the center

  11. AWFUL!!!

    I worked at The Learning Experience

    Pros

    The kids & parents

    Cons

    The owner is a total micromanager with absolutely no people skills & doesn't let the Director do their job. Tries to instill fear in the teachers, very demeaning & rude. Constantly running into rooms telling teachers what they need to be doing, when clearly they've had absolutely no childcare experience. Just because you have the money to own a daycare/preschool, doesn't mean you should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let you Director direct your school. Stay behind the scenes. Let your Director not only give the tours, but also the signing up of your potential parents. The abrasive nature shown by the owner, only scares folks away. Plus, the language barrier makes it difficult as well. It's hard to understand what is being said.
