    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time for less than a year

    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.

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexibility (since they have strict labor rules, you'll likely have plenty of opportunities to leave early/take unpaid time off), employees are often college students and administration attempts to work around school schedules

    Cons

    low pay, poor benefits, very few holidays (centers are even open christmas eve), little opportunity for growth, raises are low even based on good performance reviews

    Advice to Management

    demand higher pay for our employees

    I worked at Learning Care Group

    Pros

    Good working relationship with kids and families. Health benefits were average. Employee recognition. Lots of staff meetings. Clean centers. Good curriculum.

    Cons

    Low pay, high staff turnover. Ratios too high. Can be too profit focused. Quality of care suffers because teachers are put into classrooms that they don't want to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Don't work your loyal employees to the bone. It will come back to bite you.

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No weekends. Great opportunity to work with children from diverse backgrounds and the opportunity to see them grow and learn.

    Cons

    Low pay. The company cares more about money than their employees. You are required to work on MLK day. It is called Professional Development Day. The directors allow sick children to return the next day when they were sent home with a fever.

    Advice to Management

    Please follow state regulations

    Pros

    Great childcare discount Helping children learn and grow every day Building relationships with families

    Cons

    Huge push for good numbers, not enough focus on the positives in a center, executives that have never worked in a center, low pay for teachers, don't invest revenue back into their centers and rely too heavily on grant money from accreditation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest money back into centers. It will help gain enrollments, which will help numbers!
