    Pros

    The Learning Care Group is a corporation with a clear mission and core values which represent a company that seeks to provide the best care available to children along with a high quality curriculum. The opportunities for career growth are exponential and the investment the company puts into their schools, and in staff training and retention creates an environment where teachers feel valued and appreciated. They have resources in place to help staff grow professionally, as well as training modules which cover many topics. Support is available to all staff members, from the on site admin team all the way up to the corporate level.

    Cons

    The performance expectations are high and require a high level of commitment, loyalty, and dedication from all staff members. New events and issues arise regularly and sometimes with minimal notice so it requires being flexible, focused and self-motivated. Professional and consistent communication remains an ongoing challenge at the center level, as well as controlling workplace gossip; both of which are ongoing issues with any company.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage the staff regularly and show appreciation for what they do to meet the high company standards, not just on special teacher appreciation weeks, but every day in the little things they do to help a child or a co-worker. Communicate clearly, consistently, and respectfully. Set the example by your own character and work ethic for the high standards you expect of your staff, and hold all staff accountable for these standards without showing favoritism. Follow the same company rules and policies set for the parents and staff members, without acting above them because of position or title.

    Pros

    no pros for working in the company

    Cons

    The upper management doesn’t care about the teachers working in the school. They hire you for one position that pays so little and make you do twice the work than what you’re paid for. My
    director fired the house keeping people and asked the teachers to mop the floors, pathetic. When you ask the director to raise your pay because you’re working way more than what you’re hired for they’ll just straight up ignore you. The ratio is always high for one teacher and they are always low on staff since people keep leaving due to the high pressure job and low pay. There are always shortage of supplies in the classroom yet they are quick to charge the parents money for any reason they can find. How can teachers give quality care with such poor management and pay. Also the directors should stop playing favoritism and treat all the employees same since all of us work hard in our classroom. Just because some teachers love to gossip and chit chat with the director,they are given special treatment and favors.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay and be understanding towards the teachers that work for your company. Happy teachers means happy kids

    I worked at Learning Care Group full-time

    Pros

    If you have the right DM, the company is actually a good place to work.

    Cons

    District managers can make a break the district. Lack of support. Caught district manager lying. DM also doesn't talk to everyone involved before making a decision.

    Advice to Management

    If you aren't interested in developing staff or don't think you have time to talk to them on a regular basis, consider finding a different field.

    Pros

    Working closely with teachers in coaching them to better their classroom performance.

    Cons

    Days are long, unpredictable and not all staff members are professional educators.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work hard to be on the same page. Also, management need to be more task oriented and driven to solve problems.
