    I worked at Childtime Learning Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The director and staff were always extremely positive and helpful. I was given opportunities for leadership frequently. The team was amazing.

    Cons

    Time off was tricky sometimes because of my school being understaffed (which is common in preschools unfortunately).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Management was always very friendly!

    Advice to Management

    treat your employee with respect and be fair to them... be more appreciative and considerate...

    Pros

    Working with young children, keeping the work day busy with fun activities you plan for the children. Some employees did really care about about about working with kids so they made for great coworkers.

    Cons

    A lot of workload with little pay. Company is ONLY focused on gaining money at the expense of the childcare teachers whom are the reason families enroll their children into the childcare centers in the first place. Pay is horrible, and a raise is very little. Example: $ 0.10 raise, if any. Hiring of under qualified staff that are often inexperienced. Some employees who simply just needed a job and are not good with children are hired just to fill the void.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. It will make no difference, directors are puppets to the district managers who usually are puppets to higher-ups in the company....

    I have been working at Childtime Learning Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with children and seeing there little happy faces everyday. I also enjoy having a set schedule every week.

    Cons

    The management doesn’t care if a child is dangerous to other children or employees.
    The children will hit you bite you scratch you.

    I worked at Childtime Learning Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met some of my best friends, got job experience.

    Cons

    Seriously, if you love kids, do not work for Learning Care Group. They, in no way, shape, or form do whats in the best interest for the kids. They are 100% all about the money. It is not okay to send a 4 year old into the twos room, it's not okay to send a 23 month old into the infant room all day, every day. It's not okay to send kids around to different rooms every single day.They force teachers to go home early, you can lose 6 whole hours of pay if its a low day. They don't pay well, at all. I felt used, and unappreciated, and the director NEVER listened to me when I talked to her about kids in my class. No communication what-so-ever. Favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Change your priorities. Treat your teachers better, pay them better, pay better attention to your directors and assistants, listen to your teachers.

    I have been working at Childtime Learning Center part-time

    Pros

    Childtime has a supportive staff and engaging curriculum that makes it easy to plan your lessons for the children.

    Cons

    The company tends to get overwhelmed by its own requirements that it impedes the child's learning from time to time.

    I have been working at Childtime Learning Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not really any pro's except if you work there for longer than 3 years and have a child you would get a slight discount

    Cons

    All they care about is making the parents happy and keeping corporate off their backs for the time being and not allowing the employees any time off. They play favorites all the time and its very obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to actually manage a daycare and not just play on the phone or computer all the time
