Featured Review

Former Employee - Teacher

I worked at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly and family like staff. Bosses who stood up for you and made sure you were treated fairly and kindly by parents. Accommodating and understanding of personal situations. Raise every year... on one year anniversary. Very diverse and accepting of all cultures.

Cons

Some days are long hours when too many teachers are out. Lunch breaks aren’t on a exact schedule it’s based on when someone can come sit in your class and relieve you.

Advice to Management

Keep up on following the HEART principles, you are doing an awesome job!

Former Employee - Lead Teacher

I worked at Kindercare full-time for less than a year

Pros

Very caring staff, curriculum created for you (which is a blessing in so many ways), center provides all materials you need, flexible yet consistent schedule, overtime possible if center needs it.

Cons

PTO doesn't start accruing until you've worked there a year, lots of decisions made to make center more money, not to keep class sizes down which would help kids learn better.
