    I have been working at Celebree Learning Center full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I’ve been working at Celebree for a little over three years now and I love it! They offer so many growth opportunities and benefits. I started working here as a substitute with no certifications or degree. Now I have my 45 infant and toddlers and my 90 hour certificate. WHICH CELEBREE PAID FOR. Eventually I plan on getting my AA in ECE so I can be promoted within the company. I would 10/10 recommend working here.

    Cons

    The only cons I have about Celebree is the drama. There is a lot of women working in the school.

        I have been working at Celebree Learning Center full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        The kids and families are amazing, for the most part the staff is wonderful, pretty much a set schedule, Management is as flexible as possible.

        Cons

        Drama- it's a mostly female atmosphere and everything that happens gets talked about. Pay- For what everyone is expected to do and accomplish the pay is minuscule. Essentially need to work two jobs to be able to live. Moving kids- When you're short staffed or every day after nap time the kids are shuffled from room to room to keep ratios (sometimes even sending a visibly crying and upset kid is acceptable).Which isn't...

        Advice to Management

        Hire people, you can never have too many staff it will eliminate overtime and stress when turnover is occurring. Try to nip stuff in the budd when it first happens, so that it isn't an occurring thing. Order the food and supplies the kids and teachers need so that we can be successful and stay in line with licencing.
