    I have been working at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable flexibility when time off is needed, consistency if you have a Co-Teacher, owner is on-site much of the time, just started offering health insurance this year, because you rarely get out at your scheduled time there are some overtime opportunities

    Cons

    many other schools offering higher pay rates and raises are few and far between, no matching 401K program, no bonuses, competitive pay means someone less qualified could potentially be getting paid more than a more qualified teacher, not much room for advancement, rarely getting out at scheduled time

    I have been working at Kids ‘R’ Kids part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The main pro is the children. You grow a close connection with the children and as well as the parents and other teachers.

    Cons

    You will have to stand on your feet all day and sometimes even go the whole day without taking a break.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire new directors that know how to be more of a boss than a friend. When it comes to actual work, they are very disorganized.

    Pros

    I love the children and our parents! It has been a great experience working at Kids R Kids.

    When owners buy the schools they do not always supply the school with enough money to keep the classrooms looking nice and the time more enjoyable for the children.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better. Trust each other. Work together as a team and be a good example for staff members to look up too.
