    Pros

    Honestly, the babies. You can really bond with the kids there.

    Cons

    Management is nonexistent. Everyone is stabbing each others back. They don't follow state law half the time. For example you can be left in a classroom with more kids than you are suppose to by yourself at one time. Short staffed so they over work the employees that they do have. I would NOT recommend this to ANYONE. I don't care how desperate you are... this is not the place for you.

  8. "Loved Kids R Kids"

    I worked at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time

    Pros

    Teaching and watching the children learn and grow is am amazing feeling. The curriculum was great.

    Cons

    Each Kids R Kids is a franchise so even though they are part of a corporation they are still managed differently. The pay was above minimum but still should be more.

    Advice to Management

    If you have employees who love what they do the parents love them they are dependable and work hard then show them they appreciation they deserve. To much turn over due to teacher burn out because they don't get the help they need hire the help even if it's part time.
