    Advice to Management

    I am referring to management at the Regional level and above.

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

    Pros

    Most Families are great there's some that take advantage as usual. Most teachers pull their weight. They are willing to work with schedules

    Cons

    There was some preferential treatment and 'mean girls' cliques sometimes; tends to happen when you work with a majority all women. Location I worked at was extremely run down.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people cut corners for the sake of meeting the bottom line. Stop letting parents bring in sick children.

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

    Pros

    There are aren’t any pros.

    Cons

    I quit this job when I saw teachers being abusive to children multiple times. The last straw was when I saw a teacher they had for decades being rough with a small child in an overcrowded room of toddlers. Maybe she thinks she can because the child isn’t talking yet and she can get away with it? Also, The 2 women in management are a joke. Illegal dangerous child teacher ratio because they’re understaffed from so many people quitting. They dont order the supplies needed for the school and pocket the money instead. They are Underpaid and looking for respect they don’t get, they will try to control, micro manage, throw you under the bus, etc. They are Catty, gossiping, immature, unprofessional. They will gang up on you with other long time employees. They think they’re doing a good job covering how terrible they are and this place is but It’s not a secret anymore- just look at the yelp reviews of this place. Please please do yourself a favor and do not work here or bring your children here!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop abusing children and employees. I feel bad for you. What’s going on there isn’t a secret anymore.
