    Pros

    The fellow teachers really try to stay afloat. They can be very supportive to each other.

    Cons

    The big brass has no idea what goes on in the trenches. Management try’s but they have to maintain a certain amount of children to keep the building running. Unfortunately this means keeping children who are a danger to other children as well as the staff. Keeping this type of child for the $$$$ only makes the families who have children who are well behaved pull them out because of the fear of their child getting hurt. It also makes the staff seek employment elsewhere, places who don’t tolerate it. The other con is the pay. It is below the average for EC educators.

    Advice to Management

    Walk a week in your teachers shoes, then make decisions

    Pros

    Offers benefits
    No weekend hours for hourly staff

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in the company if you don't have the right people on your side. One of the businesses you have to know who to connect with to get you to the top. Lots of favoritism and you have to beg for training.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all staff are trained before expecting them to go above and beyond. Actually review credentials before promoting immature people who use their authority negatively. Bad look for a company.

    Pros

    Working at Learning Care Group is great! We celebrate success in many ways. I've worked for a couple different companies in the past but none that recognize the accomplishments of their employees as much as LCG. I truly feel that Support Central (Corporate) cares about the children, the employees and the schools. Everyone is very friendly and always willing to help. It's amazing how many times I hear people say they've worked here for over 10, 20, even 30 years. One of my favorite aspects is the collaboration between departments and the opportunity to work on projects. This is a growing company and it’s exciting to be a part of trying new things. I highly recommend LCG.

    Cons

    I hope someday to have a match on our 401K. Also, which I think is true with any company, communication could be better. I hope to someday have an app where we can communicate with all employees.

    Pros

    Learning Care Group has friendly, supportive staff in every department. Upper management takes the time to get to know employees. Awesome culture!

    Cons

    The cons of Learning Care Group are: No 401K Match, comparatively low compensation to other companies in the area, not much time off around the holidays, and PTO - cannot carry over or cash out.

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning Care Group has a great culture, provides flexible hours, and is a fun environment to work in. LCG created the iCare Foundation which helps employees of all brands when they are in need, and allows employees to have dress down days because of it. Their highest priority is focused on employee experience, which includes newer technologies, fun activities, and ease of day to day work.

    Cons

    Does not currently have a defined work from home policy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on building a better employee experience at both the corporate and brands. The initiatives that the company focuses on are great for our company and the future. Keep it up!

    I worked at Learning Care Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I can’t think of any pros about this company or the La Petite Academy in Scottsdale, AZ other than it’s a job. But other facilities pay better

    Cons

    Over ratio, over crowded classrooms, low pay, poor poor management. Company only cares about making money NOT what is best for kids. Company will fake documentation to become accredited.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should Fire current management in AZ and create a culture that cares about your staff.
