    Pros

    Little Lukes is a great company to work for. The staff is outstanding in every way. Everyone that I have encountered is helpful, caring and goes the extra mile for the children. They all treat the children like they were there own. The supportive staff has always been there to assist in any problems or answer any questions you might have. You get training in all different aspects of childcare . The training was a little long but covered many different subjects. Even on the most trying days everyone seems to help one another get through it. The company has very creative approaches to teaching as well as including yoga, music and karate for the children.

    Cons

    The uniforms could use more color.

    I have been working at Little Lukes Childcare Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I genuinely enjoy coming to work everyday, I absolutely love my job. Watching the children grow and learn and hitting those milestones just makes my day! The staff is like family, we get along great and someones always there to listen or lend a hand. And the administration really is there to help you. So all in all its a great work environment, great pay, phenomenal staff and administrators and best of all no nights or weekends so I can spend time with my own family!

    Cons

    Communication could be improved and the pay discrepancy between the preschool and daycare sides and maybe the uniforms.

    I have been working at Little Lukes Childcare Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Every day is different & every day counts. Little Lukes is a truly amazing, dynamic team of individuals supporting and collaborating with one another. This is not just a daycare, you are truly a professional and in such a fun, positive setting full of reward where the children always come first. Whether you are based in one of the centers or traveling between homes & facilities as an itinerant provider, you will be a part of something truly great and making a lasting impact. The entirety of the professionals within Little Lukes provide such a wide network of diverse background experience, education, certifications, and talents so everyone benefits - most importantly, the children we're serving. The vision & mission of the agency is genuine, management sincere. There are so many opportunities for your own growth, personal & professional, as well as flexibility for movement within the agency. Little Lukes is beyond family friendly, it is family focused. It is family.

    Cons

    It isn't a con about Little Lukes, it's that there aren't enough Little Lukes! Not even just site based specifically, but people like our team making a difference - for children, families, communities.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain your focus on your vision and continue to strive for nothing short of excellence. It's thanks to all you've created that I can't imagine working anywhere else or entrusting my own children with anyone else.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, I work two jobs and go to school full time and they work with me without any issues.
    Friendly staff

    Cons

    Uniform is not comfortable especially in hot months.
    Because I'm part time I only get one shirt which is tough because I still work every day

    Consider different uniform options, possibly a lighter material for polos

    Pros

    Most people think that Little Lukes is just a daycare center but we also provide speech, physical, and occupation therapy for special needs children. It's amazing to be a part a company that helps children. I have worked for the company for seven years and each year the company has been growing and improving. I feel like Little Lukes is my second family and I have enjoyed every single day.

    Cons

    I don't have a con
