I worked at La Petite Academy part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work with children and their families and build connections to those children through teaching.

Cons

Minimal restroom breaks. Long work days. Instability of work hours. Never know when you will be needed or when they will send you home. Pay in not sufficient.

Advice to Management

Provide teachers with scheduled periodic breaks, not just for lunch. Have a set schedule each week for breaks and work hours, and make sure all the teachers have knowledge of that schedule. Routine work hours is a must.

    Pros

    Everyone cares and loves the children who come here.

    Cons

    Communication between management and staff needs improvement. There is definite favoritism going on as well. Staff to parent communication needs improvement in some classrooms.

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

    Pros

    I have been working for La Petite Academy for over 6 months now, and I love it. You just have to go in prepared to do what you are told. Most days you will have the same schedule and be in the same class room the same times, but then there are those off days where things have to change. If you go in ready for anything, you will be less frustrated when things don't work out.

    Some great things are:

    *Descent Pay scale
    *Pleasant People
    *Lots of help from corporate
    *Benefits for Full time employees

    Cons

    I do see were some of the reviews have a problem with the company. However, my position is low management and I can tell you some of the things are even out of the companies hands. Such as the complaint about under staffing, now over the last month we have hired 5 people and 3 of them left with out notice.

    Some not to great things are:

    *No benefits for part time people
    *Problems with staff retention
    *Limited full time positions

    Advice to Management

    better pay scale increases for milestones in the company
