If you have a good director, the job can be great. The kids are amazing, and the reason I stayed as long as I did. As a mom, no nights and weekends is a huge plus, and my director was willing to schedule my break around a school activity I wanted to attend. Discounts on daycare start after the age of 2
poor pay long hours inconsistent schedule little room for long term growth in the company little recognition for time in service- if you hit 20 years, you get a plaque on the wall corporate management generally has no child care experience, and makes decisions and changes that don't always work2

You have a chance of a good director. However, this varies school to school and has no rhyme or reason.
1. Extremely low pay 2. Optional benefits for full time are not good 3. Toys and overall features of the school are outdated and old 4. Corporate is constantly adding more for the teacher to do with little training and NO planning time 5. No supply money 6. Excessive paperwork (cost/benefit is out of balance) 7. You end up doing all of the lesson plans on your own time at home 8. Regionally the district manager varies but if you have a bad one, then you are going to hate your job.5
