    Pros

    Very organized, very supportive company. Great training and resources available if they are implemented as expected, these tools can help you have a strong, efucated, nurturing team. The love and support from the families are all the appreciation one needs to know you are making a difference. Great curriculum.

    Cons

    As a director anywhere, there is zero room for error when your dealing with a customers two most important assests: their children & their money. There is a lot demanded of you by the company, your employees, and your customers. There is a lot of paperwork and a lot of financial responsibilities which can really leave you left pulled in all directions. There are LONG hours. These are all cons of a Director position anywhere though.

    Pros

    Some employees genuinely care about the children. Gave a lot of free rein to run the room how I wanted. Assistant director was very supportive and listened to criticism.

    Cons

    - Very low pay unless you can exploit a time when they are in a staffing crisis.
    - Virtually no room for upward mobility.
    - Employees call out sick all the time, but if you actually ask for the day off, expect a struggle.
    - Senior management is only concerned with checking off a sheet. My room way reviewed when we were on a field trip. How could they have evaluated my skills as teacher without any kids in the room?
    - Most of the employees are unenthusiastic and the care suffers for it.
    - Be prepared to have to stay late as it never seems like anyone can get scheduling done right.
    - The question, "Are the kids having fun?" or "Do the kids want to come back?" is never asked.
    - Presentation and following the guidelines is more important than actually caring for the kids.
    - Great place to work if you are okay with mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Big kids need a gym to play in during the day. It is summer camp, not summer school. Fun can help make the place safe. Weed out the people who don't care. Pay the teachers who do a good job more.


  3. Work suitable for kids out of high school, or someone who is retired, second job, etc.

    Pros

    Child care discount. Weekends off. Most kids will put a smile on your face.

    Cons

    Never know when you get off work. Management is horrible. Stressful. BORING. Constantly have teachers doing nothing but yell at the kids. Food is served cold and minimal. Nothing but gossiping woman who talk behind your back, but nice to your face. No room to advance. Low pay, LONG days. Sucks the life out of you. They don't consider the fact that you actually have an outside life. Not challanging. Easy, routine work. You gain weight, from lack of activity and caged/locked in rooms. Can't use the bathroom when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn out your employees. Make it fun. CARE about your employees. Be a leader, not a boss.

    Pros

    Discounted Childcare, opportunity to bonus out twice a year

    Cons

    Incompetent staff due to very low salaries, very difficult to stay with in licensing regulation because of the Cooperate involvement in making directors cut corners on staffing to meet budget; this caused safety issues and parent complains because you need to constantly shift people around to stay in ration.


  6. DO NOT WORK HERE. WASTE OF TIME.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Where do I start?
    You can never go to the bathroom,
    you are ALWAYS over ratio because they keep enrolling kids.
    The turn over rate for employees is crazy. In the year and a half I was there, over thirty people came and left.
    They expect you to do a million things on top of being over ratio and DO NOT give you time out of class to do so.
    The pay is horrible.
    They play favorites with the staff.
    They gossip about everything that breathes.
    You have to work over time, with no over time pay, and only half hour breaks, sometimes no breaks.
    There is no point in calling HR or the corporate office because they won't call you back.
    They constantly hire people with no experience, which not only doesn't help the employees that are there, but they make you lie on your biography they hang in front of the class rooms to make it look like you have more experience.

    Advice to Management

    Find new management.

    Pros

    Working directly with children ranging in ages between 6 weeks to 5 years old.

    Cons

    Inconsiderate staff, no overtime, sometimes employees work long hours without breaks, parents and staff may misconstrue what you say. Some parents may overreact to simple incidents and accidents.

    Pros

    working with children
    meeting new people

    Cons

    low pay- they expect so much from teachers but pay very little and everyone pretty much starts off on the same pay grade even if you have a degree.
    poor management
    not enough support from management
    working with a lot of females so expect caddiness, gossip, and favoritism

    Pros

    Loving kids that make you laugh

    Cons

    Low pay, races of 0.25 cents. A lot of job for low money. Chaotic place, classrooms over ratio all the time. Favoritism from management for some employees creating bad work environment. Management only cares about money. I will never take my kids to that place.
