Working with children is a very rewarding job. Job is year round.
Not enough money for renovations Pay raises are horrible literally cents Constantly blending and sending students around to control labor1

love the kids and families - working with children is always a blessing
the level of micromanaging is insane, favoritism is also out of control - lot of shuffling of kids and teachers gets exhausting - very low pay for the level of expectation1

Love the children, and love the teachers. Love the interactions with in the center.
Teachers never get paid what they should, and it is hard for them to recieve a pay raise. Took me a whole year to get employee's a better pay by 0.25-0..50 cents. Poor Professionalism, and poor upper managment communication. Poor way of handling issues with lack of communication. You will be expected as a director to run the facility by yourself and there will be no accountablilty on any one else besides yourself, therefore you will rarely be able to leave the school. Little to no vacation time and very stressful environment with very little pay. Not enough pay for the amount of responsibilities and the amount of time you will spend working.4

My coworkers are great, I love my students and my families (for the most part), and I like having weekends free.
Pay, pay, pay. The pay at this company is atrocious and there are NO raises. I've been at the company 3 years and received 20 cents. In this time I have earned 15 Child Development units, become a lead teacher, been certified as a bus driver, and filled in wherever they need me. And been compensated for none of it. Benefits might as well not exist- I haven't been to a doctor in over a year (since I was on better health insurance) because the co-pay and deductible are so high. Despite the crappy insurance I still have to pay a bundle for it- $70 every other week (every paycheck) and that's the cheapest option with no dental or vision. In addition to not being recognized monetarily there is no recognition for the average employee by anyone from corporate or even within the school I work at. No matter what I do I receive no positive feedback- the only feedback I get is when something bad happens so I become very unmotivated and have desire to improve and the cycle starts all over. If you love to kiss @$$ this is a great company for you. I've seen completely unqualified people become promoted time and again over very qualified people purely because they've attached their lips to the bosses behind. Brand new employees are treated like gold for about 6 months; given the best hours, allowed to call in sick and take whatever days off they want while if you've been there for longer you get vacation and sick requests turned down constantly. Teachers are expected to do A LOT! There is a ton of paperwork, curriculum, and just general BS associated with this job. The families are there for us and we are basically the only reason they are there and yet the teachers get none of the credit while directors get bonuses. The bottom line is all about money so supplies come in sparingly, the food we serve the kids is CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP, and basically anything the company can do to save money they do even if it means it's not in the best interest of the teachers, families, or students.4

Working with kids if that's your passion
The hours and pay sucks you can not play bills off minimum wage and 15 hours a week2

Good employees, and directors, clean center's, great parents
they pay you way below minimum wage even if you have the experience but not a degree.

Although the economic downturn has caused the office mood to take a hit, in general it is one of the happiest places I have ever had the pleasure of working for. Yes, you still have office politics like any other workplace, but there is still some of the small company feel leftover after all of the recent growth.
Some departments seem to receive preferential treatment over others in regarding to staffing and pay. That good if you're in one of those departments, but sucks if you're not.1
