    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!

    Pros

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

    The management doesn’t care if a child is dangerous to other children or employees.

    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

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

    Pros

    There’s a loose management style, you can often get away with a lot (eating outside food, bringing straws in the room, sitting, being late, etc.).
    They’re willing to negotiate pay with you, a friend got a much higher pay by negotiating
    Will pay for you to complete First Aid/CPR as well as your CDA.

    Cons

    The one I worked at (on Pleasant Valley) was very disorganize
    Management was constantly in classrooms as teachers, not doing managerial duties.
    Many of the women like to talk down about other employees
    They don’t really enforce the sick policy-sending kids home when sick (one child threw up and didn’t even get a call home)

    Advice to Management

    Work on the schedule and ensure the director and assistant director aren’t in the classroom all the time.
