    Pros

    You learn from the kids really. Seeing them learn is the most rewarding thing once you see what and impact you’ve made on their lives.

    Cons

    Very physically demanding
    If you have more children then you can deal with, it can be hard to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Notice more things. Sometimes the teachers here do things with the intention of you noticing. Please appreciate the small things. There has been so many times we’re you see teachers wanting to leave, simply because they do not feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Good work environment, nice staff, great families. Nice that the materials and resources are all set up. There's room for creative freedom and expression.

    Cons

    Underpaid for a position that requires a college degree. Seems to be taking advantage of young new grads.

    Advice to Management

    Management was nice, but didn't know education that well. More focused on the business aspect.

    I have been working at Primrose School full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, paid days off, a team of teacher friends, the joy of teaching and children exemplifying the lesson learned. Staff support as substitutes and for potty breaks.

    Cons

    No contract, not much upward movement, long hours of loud noises and headaches, communication with management is unreliable at times due to high volume of families and inquiries.

    Advice to Management

    Support and resources to teachers on a bi-weekly basis would ensure the turnover rate. For example, 1 hour a week of support while the teacher goes to lesson plan in peace. Bi-Monthly meetings with 1 lunch meeting and one evening meeting.
