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

    Pros

    Working with great people. Having great children, and families! Curriculum is easy to read, and follow! Glass walls through whole building, and pays well above average for teachers with good experience.

    Cons

    Owners tend to be overwhelming at times. Some management does not manage well. Too many "owners" and never sure who to listen to and follow directions. Everyone needs to get on the same page.

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth is wonderful. Of course the children light up your day.

    Cons

    Patience can be tested. This is not a "sit down" job. You are moving all the time. The curriculum is very active and so are the children.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job. The training program really helped to prepare me for this position. The support is awesome!

    I have been working at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to most daycare.

    Cons

    You are micromanaged like crazy. They watch and listen to the cameras like a hawk and if they claim you are doing wrong, they will not let you explain yourself on your actions. It is their way or the highway. The owners and upfront administration are extremely manipulative.

    I worked at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food on occasion, 1 hour lunches (if others don't go over and cut into your lunch)

    Cons

    You are told different things by the two directors, no organization or cohesion between them, gossip and cliques among co-workers, high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and address the issues they bring up. A co-worker asked the owner about an issue and the owner completely ignored her concerns.
