    I worked at Learning Care Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Watching children grow and learn everyday. Establishing good and lasting relationships with the families. LCG does have a really fabulous curriculum in place for the children to grow.

    Cons

    Staff is encouraged not to gossip, yet the director does so herself. And from attending several management meetings over five years, this is the way most centers are ran. When the issue was brought up several times to upper management, it was ignored. Upper management and corporate love to bark orders and raise rates. Twice a year they raise rates on these families yet the teachers see 25 cent increases per year. It’s absolute bull not to care about the teachers enough to give them a decent raise. Average corporation where money is, and will always be the number one priority.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Be a mentor, have your teachers’ backs and be consistent without showing favoritism.

    "Wouldn't go back"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Assistant Director 

    I worked at Learning Care Group

    Pros

    If you're lucky enough to be noticed by higher management, you stand a chance at having extra opportunities- but with no compensation.

    Cons

    All they desired was protecting their own selves. Took major issues and concerns to higher management, and it was brushed under the rug. Director I worked under was demoted- but allowed to stay in management within the company, after 47 state violations in 2 years, many of them serious violations- including being put on administrative review by the state and loosing her director qualifications.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Learning Care Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decently average salary, lots of resources through corporate networking, rewards employees for having a degree. Good training program in place for employees.

    Cons

    Learning Care Group promotes based on who you know. Takes short cuts that can sometimes negatively impact the children and families that you are trying to serve. Shouldn't have teachers in rooms over ratio because someone called off, shouldn't classify ketchup as a vegetable because you are trying to save money on your food budget for the month (especially not when tuition is so high- these parents expect better).

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of school directors that aren't good people, but have good sales results. Don't just look at their enrollment rates as a measure of success- they can be the worst to work for.

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time

    Pros

    The company has great programs and tools for teachers to use for educating children. Support central is amazing! Everything you need is only a few clicks away. It's very easy to move within or up in the company.

    Cons

    There is so much unnecessary paperwork that is supposed to keep the children safe, but if I'm doing paperwork all day how am I able to supervise and educate the children. The wages are very low but they expect you to do way to much that it's no where close to being worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees! Understand that the company asks a lot from the teachers but are not willing to pay the teachers a decent wage. The turn over is so great because the employees feel as though no one cares about them. Pay the teachers what they are worth, without teachers this company would be nothing. Management in the centers are very underpaid for everything they are expected to do. They are people too and should not have to work 12 hour shifts to cover classrooms because we can't keep staff happy since they are not paid enough and still have to get that report in on time. It should be more than just about your numbers and waste of time reports. Sugar is a headache that has many flaws. ATS is supposed to help find staff but is not always helpful. It's supposed to weed out "unfit" candidates, but still shows them in the system, why would you show me someone that is not able to be hired? That assessment is not very accurate either, some of the ones that pass it are the worst candidates. They have high marks in reliability but are the no call no shows, and I feel that we pass over some amazing candidates because they are not computer savvy or great test takers. Also the people that are making policies or coming up with programs to make it "easier" for the centers should probably have worked with young children and try it out before they roll it out. Just because it sounds like a great idea does NOT mean that it works in real life situations.
