    There are many options that allow each employee to select which benefits are best for their family.

    No maternity leave, unless that has changed but health insurance was great

    Benefits are expensive. If you want to add your spouse to your plan, you have to get a family plan which costs upwards of 700-800 dollars a month. Have to use disability in order to get paid for maternity.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Support Teacher in Seattle, Washington State

    Its nothing special. I negotiated and received 25 cents more than most teachers working at the center which is shameful.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Watertown, Massachusetts

    Great medical benefits, child care discount, generous PTO and sick days, 401K match, and many additional benefits including discounted insurance, entertainment and so much more.

  • Oct 21, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Preschool Teacher in San Francisco, California

    Worst: Do not get all holidays off. Some holidays the school is closed but we are expected to come in for an "in-service day." On staff meeting days, our "early closure" time is not until 5:00 pm, and we have to stay after hours, sometimes as late as 8:00 pm on a week night. You get two weeks off, but it does not increase over time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Atlantis, Florida

    Health insurance is expensive, they offer 401k, vacation and paid time off and 50% employee discount for your kids.

  • Oct 30, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Watertown, Massachusetts

    This company has made a name for itself by offering one core benefit to its employees, discounted childcare. If you don't have children, there is little to no benefit to working here. the 401k is menial, the dental covers little to nothing, and they only reimburse you up to 500.00 dollars a year if you want to obtain a degree as you work. Do they offer everything that everyone else does (Retirement , Maternity leave, Heath Insurance ) yes, however this is all offered at the absolute minimum.

  • Sep 26, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former EdAssist in Watertown, Massachusetts

    The cheapest health insurance is ~$50 per pay period (bi-weekly). dental and vision are cheap. They match 25% of 401 contributions with a 7 year vesting period. Vacation and sick time accrue quickly. 50% off child care is helpful for those with children. There is no holiday bonus, and if you're lucky you'll get a 3% raise each year. There is no maternity leave (Only short term disability that you need to pay for out of each paycheck) and no loan repay program.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Kansas City, Missouri

    Do not provide free childcare to teachers and only have a limited number of discounts.
