    I have been working at Country Home Learning Center full-time (More than 5 years)

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

    Pros

    Working with children is rewarding
    Some Paid holidays
    Usually leave early on staff development days

    Cons

    You have to be pretty adamant about support when you need it. They don’t help just because.
    Will make you take extra long breaks to avoid over time...even if you signed up to work an event and the point is to receive overtime.
    Ratios are lower than state but still too high for one teacher with no assistance.
    Clique and as expected in a place full of women mostly, lots of gossip

    Advice to Management

    Not to show such obvious favoritism and maintain professionalism with everyone. Provide more support to teachers with out them having to beg for it.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with a diverse group of children.

    Cons

    People working there were cold, and intentionally cruel to newcomers. Setting new teachers up for failure by giving them false information that would mislead you causing the newcomer to look “bad” in the eyes of management so that they’ll look better at their job. They will schedule you from open to close, but you won’t ever get overtime because they’ll tell you to take over 2-3 hours at lunch. There are segregated cliques among the staff. Staff including management were known to badmouth other staff members to parents. Certain staff that are favored by management will hang out in the office all day and are allowed to peruse even personal files and items of other staff members, causing class ratios to be off, often causing the remaining teachers to have more than twice the state ratio, while the office has 5 or more staff members eating , shopping, and chatting. Children who have repeatedly brought acute physical harm and verbal harassment to other children and staff remain in the school even though other children are terrified of them. This seems to be due to the fact that some parents are known to bring gifts to the staff members and management as well. It was absolutely the worst experience if my professional career. I don’t think all locations are like this, but I would Not suggest working for the location near 281 & Thousand Oaks.

    Advice to Management

    The owner needs to seriously reconsider the staff from management on down.

    I have been working at Country Home Learning Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starting pay for a lead teacher is $12.00.
    Staff is really friendly and willing to help out and like a family.
    Country home has their own curriculum but you can add your own ideas as long as it stays within the theme.
    They provide all the training every year so you don't have to go anywhere else for the training.
    Every month you are on time you earn a 1/2 day off.
    I work at the one on Toepperwein Rd

    Cons

    there are no cons at Country Home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Country Home Learning Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working at CHLC on Poss Rd, I receive paid vacation, paid holidays and paid training. Also, health care benefits, 401K plus guidance for further education. There is always opportunity for advancement. In addition CHLC has been like my second home and my second family. The environment is always positive. The director and assistant director are always supportive with our needs and have a plethora of knowledge. Our curriculum coordinator is very helpful and always makes sure we have what we need. The front office is amazing and ready to help in every turn. Finally, its so much fun working here.

    Cons

    None . I absolutely love this learning center.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so amazing and supportive.
