Pros

The kids can be sweet and I like the ladies I work with. They're also flexible with my college schedule

Cons

They are stingy with the hours they'll give you and they do not pay enough for the amount of work we do. Management is also overly controlling regarding classroom layout.

Advice to Management

Spend all day , everyday for a week in the classroom.

    I have been working at La Petite Academy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's nice working for a company that believes in quality education for children.
    I feel supported all the way to the CEO level. Anytime i need anything, someone is there to help point me in the right direction.

    Cons

    Pay could be better for all positions.
    Benefits should be more accessible (less costly)

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the children -- and the families we serve. Come up with better pay plans for teachers and staff.

    I have been working at La Petite Academy part-time

    Pros

    You really get to work with students ages 6weeks and up.
    All the lessons are given to you, the teacher only has to implement the lesson plans
    The environment is great, there are secure locks and no one can come in unless expected and is buzzed in.

    Cons

    It's all about the money (unfortunately) I hear management bickering about how much they need to make and how much they need to enroll to make [goals]. It makes me so sad to see how much tuition is and yet all they care about is the $$. Again, unfortunately it is only part of a big corporation that may just indeed want to pull in as much money as possible.

    As a teacher, it's unfortunate to see how much you do with children that you love working with each and every day and pay is not up to meet all that is expected from you.
