    I worked at La Petite Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My director was the nicest person and so was the assistant director. One of the head teachers took me under her wing and gave me so much confidence. The teachers all worked together and made that place a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Wish the pay was greater, but for the time it was pretty good.
