    Pros

    Kids, flexible hours, great coworkers and management! Opportunities to move up within the company. OPEN DOOR at the center everyday to parents and staff.

    The pay could be better but compatible to other daycare.

    Advice to Management

    None really other than keep up what your doing! I love working here and glad that the management has no turn over in years at the Ellet center and several of the of the Akron centers.

    Pros

    love of children, activities & Crafts, teaching, and making friends with coworkers

    Not enough staff, let them know you need to go if you absolutely do everyone mostly works 12hr shifts due to low staff, children are always moving classroom to classroom so they have no structure.

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

    Pros

    We have new management and working here is a much better environment than what it used to be. We are a close knit staff and the acting director and district manager genuinely care about our concerns individually. The kids are amazing and I look forward to going to work every day.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, as with any daycare. We don’t have a new director hired as of yet. We are understaffed some days and most people don’t get out on time, but we love the overtime. There is not a lot of in depth or hands on training.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring staff, have a staff member present them with a PowerPoint and go over all trainings giving the new people a chance to ask questions and have a little fun. The training could be two or three days and include hands on diaper changing, hand washing, etc. Don’t hire just anyone because we need people. We need people who actually want to and can physically do their job.
