    Pros

    Really Nothing. The children and families are wonderful. The problem is that teachers are not allowed to be honest about what happens at the center. The children are moved from room to room based on ratio (teacher to children), teachers are floated in and out to fill spots when management sends teachers home to cut hours.

    Cons

    Management does not respect staff (at all), the center is profit based oriented, it is very clear that management only truly cares about enrolling as many children as possible and skimping on supplies, teacher salaries, and cutting down as many staff hours as possible per week to keep their expenses as low as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your staff, show your staff that you care about the work that they do, and realize that parents enroll their children based on the teachers that will be working with their children.

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits. 401k plan. sick time. vacation time.

    Cons

    Got pointed for using sick time you earned. Full time hours were cut-almost losing benefits. It was not easy to take time off. Vacation hours were cut in half. Upper local management was not respectful to teachers-which was the face of the company. Never money for supplies to carry our curriculum.

    Advice to Management

    Allow personal days to hardworking teachers. Budget money for supplies to carry out curriculum. It is a great curriculum-if only they could do it.
