I worked at La Petite Academy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I love watching the children learn, take their first steps, speak their first words. It can be very rewarding. It's fun to decorate your classroom with the monthly themes.

Cons

Too much work with little assistance, materials and pay. Directors often purposely over-enroll in order to make more money, which means that it takes longer for the younger children to move up into the next classroom. A lot of gossip. Management seems desperate to hire anybody which leads to a lot of inexperienced workers who quit without notice after short amount of time.

Advice to Management

Offer more support to your staff
