    Pros

    Nancy the Director is amazing to work for. Her positive energy and passion for kids is evident in her work and her ability to build a fantastic team.

    Cons

    The new owners don't know what they are doing. There aren't hiring new teachers to help and they don't care about breaking licensing and being over ratio.

    Advice to Management

    Back off and let the Director run the business smoothly like she was before. The staff were happy and the parents loved it here.

    I have been working at Kiddie Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The kiddos make the days. Although they can be frustrating, your co-teacher is always there to back you up. Management is nice and supportive, and always aim to challenge you, which is a pro in my opinion due to ambition in this career field.

    Cons

    The gossip. Teachers don't know when to keep their mouths shut, and their attitude is sometimes ridiculous. There's no time in the day to do prep work, but if you are passionate and driven, you will find the time.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for always being ready to listen. Your compassion shows through the school and how the children thrive.

    I have been working at Kiddie Academy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at Kiddie Academy for the past 12 years. In those 12 years, I have gained a second family. KIddie Academy has such a great work environment and has a wonderful family atmosphere. Everyday the teachers always have a smile on their face and are so warm, caring and friendly. They love the children as if they were their own. I couldn't imagine working any where else, as well as, bringing my son to any other school. I know he is going to gain all the knowledge he needs to start elementary school, as well as, have fun and make friends for life and receive all the love and care from his teachers.

    Cons

    Kiddie Academy is a great place to work and wonderful place to bring your children to have fun and learn at the same time.

    Pros

    The Director really tries to make it a fun place to work. She really cares about the staff and works hard. I've learned alot since I've been there. The kids are really great to be around and this is good experience for me, I'm hoping to get into public school some day.

    Cons

    Pay is typical at child care center. Some staff are out sick alot, makes it hard on those who show up to work each day.
