    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at AOL Child Development Center. It was like a family. Independence to be the professional that you are as a teacher.

    I have been working at Children's Creative Learning Centers (More than a year)

    Pros

    The children and other teachers were great

    Cons

    Management was poor, they were unorganized and unhelpful. Employee morale was low. Children would be moved from one class to another without notice. Turnover was high. The place was filthy. No extra time was given to prepare lessons.

    I have been working at Children's Creative Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Accountability is very important to CCLC. Good professional development trainings.
    Tuition reimbursement and education assistance through the STARS program does make up for the mediocre pay.
    Most employees are parents and understanding of work/life/family issues. Also 50% discount for your own kids is certainly something.

    Cons

    Teachers definitely not paid enough. Not enough attention to the mental health of teachers.

    Pros

    The team I worked with were kind, empathetic and fun to work with. The team felt more like family than just co-workers. The job can be stressful at times but with support of an awesome director and team, that stress will be alleviated.

    Cons

    The pay is better than other public schools and programs but still not enough to retain some great teachers (especially those with their own children). High turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to work your teachers say, they know the family and children best. Pay them what they are worth because we are going to keep losing great teachers at a high rate.

    Pros

    Nice Architect of the School. Very homey and well thought out of placement of things.

    Cons

    There was a big turnout rate for teachers leaving. They hire subs that do not match the school's philosophies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things consistent

    I worked at Children's Creative Learning Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The sites are beautiful, the families and staff are dedicated and passionate about the children's learning and care. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Management is awful. A lot of turnover in upper management so field employees have a hard time knowing what is expected. Too much busy work and not enough time spent doing the important work being with children, and families and colleagues. Benefits suck!

    Advice to Management

    Tom Wyatt or Wei Lei need to send someone undercover to see what the Directors and Leadership at Stanford really have to deal with they are stressed and overwhelmed. Therefore the teachers have a hard time being engaged. They are tired and over worked.
