I worked at Kindercare full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunities to care for, teach, and play with children, decent benefits

Cons

Lack of equal treatment between staff members and families (often felt inferior), lack of support from other staff and management (thrown under the bus), poor schedule management during low ratio months.

Advice to Management

Increase amount of respect toward all staff members - this includes trusting that staff have the best intentions toward the children, families, and other staff members when issues arise. Respectful communication is key - don't talk down to staff, and stay consistent with expectations between staff members.

    I worked at Kindercare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The support recived from other teachers is amazing. Well Educated, Dedicated Staff. The parents and children who attened the center are wonderful and apreciate the enviorment the staff provides. Kindercare offeres wonderful mandated training.

    Cons

    The Director plays favorites. She offeres salary based on her opinion of a person not their qualifications. I worked as a co lead teacher and was paid more(without education to back me) the my co lead teacher who had a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so lazy.
