    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.

    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.

    Pros

    nice director where I was

    Cons

    They pay barely any money and expect A LOT out of you. You never know how many kids will be in your class daily as they pack you full and move kids to you from other classes who you do not know. High turnover. Broken toys. Not enough cots for all kids to sleep on. Unsure when you look around what they value as the money doesnt seem to be going anywhere for true upkeep. Only appearance matters.

    Advice to Management

    where is all the money going that parents are paying?
