    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    *Childcare Network is incredibly supportive of the teachers and directors.
    *They encourage continuing my education and will pay for classes.
    *The teachers I work with are rock stars!!!
    *I've worked at a couple different schools and the directors have gone out of their way to be supportive and get what is needed for the classroom.

    Cons

    *Older buildings but have seen a lot of repairs and they respond quickly if something gets broken.

    Advice to Management

    Love the openness of the company and the support that we get to do our jobs well so please keep doing that.

    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is such a great place to work. There's such a great family feel all the way from the front office to the school age rooms!!

    Cons

    We are under paid and there's not a lot the director can do about it because she can't give everyone a raise. Our turn over rate for employees is extremely high because people get tired of working for little to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    If I was paid more then it wouldn't be such a drag to come to work and work out butts off. It also may prevent some of the calling out because the money missing out of the checks would actually effect some of them.

    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Childcare Network helps further your career by providing Educational Assistance for obtaining your CDA. The people you work with become your family. This is a great job for students who are interested in Education as their future career plan. Childcare Network offers affordable life, vision and dental benefits to employees.

    Cons

    This is a hard-working job and some can't handle it. You need to be motivated and willing to be a positive role model in the young children's lives that you see everyday!

    Advice to Management

    Maintain motivation within the staff and encouraging them to do the best that they can do!

    Pros

    I have been with CNI for 13 years and love this company! I have been in the ECE field for almost thirty years and seen many school environments. CNI cares about the families and children that attend our schools. When you walk into one of our schools you are welcomed and can feel the family atmosphere. CNI also cares for their employees. They offer free online training, benefits, free continuing education and much more. CNI is a wonderful place to work!

    Cons

    If there is a con it would be minimal and temporary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and improving the work life.

    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company as a director for over 4 years and I have grown professionally with the programs and opportunities I have been afforded. I have enjoyed most of my team over the years and felt supported by my district manager consistently.
    The fact that we offer benefits and higher education is great for the ECE field...not many competitors do this. There is a ton of support for teacher and opportunities for them to be celebrated.

    Cons

    Long hours and low pay for admin--must truly love kids to stick with it!
    Work/life balance horrible.
    Pay for employees is too low to hire quality consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what it is like to be at the school level when you set policy and expectations---remember the phone ringing, a child vomiting, an irate parent, call outs, a tour and bus runs all before 7am.
