    I've been with the company for some time now. We have been through a few different management teams, and I have to say I LOVE our current one! They are fun, understanding, fair, hard working ladies:)

    Cons

    The pay could be a little higher, still not bad!

    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!

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

    Pros

    If you aren't good at making lesson plans they have a computer program that does it for you. The company has systems in place to make employees feel appreciated

    Cons

    Turnover is insane. I worked their eight months and saw 6 people quit. The downside to this is they have difficulty hiring new staff members, so the work falls on an already over worked staff. In my last week of employment I was working 7-4:50ish. This is the only place I have ever worked that didn't staff correctly, but still managed to have three "leaders" sitting in the office for most of the day. The management staff was unprofessional and often gossiped about each other and the other staff members. Rules were often not enforced or people get preferential treatment. I tried to speak to my district manager, nothing changed. I put in more than six weeks notice and got treated poorly after that.

    Advice to Management

    I have none.

    Pros

    Depending on your location, you get paid above min wage. 1hr long breaks.

    Cons

    They care more about following Learning Care Group policy, than state and federal licensing policy. They don't care for their employees and we have little to no value. And it makes way to long to move up within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees than the numbers (federal food money, title XX money, childcare payments, overtime hours, DOL pressure, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    TIME MANAGEMENT!

    I worked at Childtime Learning Center part-time

    Pros

    Really the only pro, were SOME of the employees and the kids.

    Cons

    Corporate was pretty great, but my school in particular was always pretty dirty (not on my accord) and never seemed to run all that smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    More surprise visits and come down on the employees more, rather than the director. If you come down on the director, sometimes they don't relay the message back to the people that need to hear it.
