    I have been working at Kiddie Academy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owners and management are like family. They establish a great working environment. I have been attending college to finish my Early Childhood degree during my employment and they've really been great about working with my schedule. I love my co workers and am going to miss them :-( If I had children I would absolutely bring them here. They also let us do fun things like Jean Friday and pay for our continuing ed.

    Cons

    I think working with children in general can be hard some days. But any job will have hard days right? The director was supportive when we had issues though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and the school will remain the best!

    I have been working at Kiddie Academy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The owners care about the well being of the staff and children. I have worked at Kiddie Academy since 2012 and feel valued as an employee. The pay is great and the benefits are good too. We receive 25% off of child care as an employee and now that I have worked here for 3 years it is 50%

    Also working at a SUTQ rated center...I love working at Kiddie Academy of Reynoldsburg.

    Cons

    It is not easy work...we provide children with portfolios and hands on experiences and this requires preparation and dedication...and moreover passion for educating children

    Advice to Management

    Continue the Employee of the quarter, continue to offer the TEACH scholarship and continue those unannounced incentives that provide the team with various gift cards to say thanks....

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

    Pros

    Management is supportive and staff is like family

    Cons

    No pre-schools or day cares pay enough but that is understood because people couldn't afford it otherwise. Kiddie Academy pays a little above most other centers though.

    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.

    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.
