Fun place with good co workers, however the manager lacks and your boss lives far away. Poor when it comes to responding to emails.

Satisfying yet challenging
Infant Teacher (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXMay 21, 2015
Looking after infants is one of the most satisfying yet challenging jobs of the world; after all, the early years of a child are the most important ones and an infant teacher has to make sure that they are given proper care that they deserve. Our daily routines involve changing a dirty diaper, to comforting a child, and to assuring a parent that their child is in great care. There is not much time to sit down and plan which can be the most difficult part of the job because you find yourself working on your break and at home. When you have a great team of co-workers like I do, it makes for a positive work environment, a happy employee, and ultimately a happy baby. Management is very up and down, black and white, but very open table for conversation and listening to ideas and solutions.

It is a privilege to work with kids.
Head Toddler Teacher/ Center Event Coordinator (Current Employee), Armonk, NYMay 18, 2015
Working with children is truly a blessing. This is not a job that you do just for the money. It takes a lot of patience and dedication. Children are challenging, curious, innocent, and honest. They are so innocent that you can never really get upset at them. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep them from getting hurt but they do get into everything. The most enjoyable part of my job is just being around the children. My Co-workers are awesome, we share our knowledge and look out for one another. You are constantly learning in this field and for the sake of the children it is important to stay in the know to ensure that you are providing quality learning experiences for the children in your care's growth and development.

Making education fun
Education Coordinator/ Teacher (Current Employee), Manhattan, NYMay 12, 2015
Pros: Working with children of various backgrounds
Cons: the benefits are not the best
A typical day consists of teaching children ages 1-12. I learned how to properly manage a classroom so it is conducive to learning and creates an environment where children feel safe. My co-workers depend on me to assist them in the classroom whenever needed. The hardest part of my job is working with a limited budget to order classroom and educational supplies. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I see a child smile because they are having fun learning.

Opportunity for advancement in career.
Lead Teacher (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 12, 2015
Pros: Career Advancement
Cons: No matching of benefits
A bit corporate, so commensurate benefits are smaller than at other organizations. However, there do seem to be opportunities for climbing a career ladder towards becoming education coordinator or assistant director.

ok
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMay 3, 2015
Pros: Teaching children, advancement and learning
Cons: No support or back up from management
I worked with amazing children, wonderful co-workers and an amazing co-teacher. I loved my job. A typical day was supervising and interacting with 5-10 preschoolers and I loved it. Those kids were amazing to work with along with my co-teacher. We got along fantastically and I knew I could always go to her about anything. My coworkers and my lead teacher were very approachable. Management was sometimes another story. I was very comfortable with my education coordinator, however the directors were another story. I felt as if they were not approachable and made me feel guilty about asking for help when they always encouraged it.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working and teaching the children playing and watching them grow however it became to get hard to do since the management was so picky about family style dining and changing diapers/potty training that I felt as if that's all I did. That I rarely got to sit and play and interact with the children. My coteacher and I tried all these ways that our lead teacher was advising and nothing seemed to work. When I went to management about it, they didn't care. So that was the hardest part, finding solutions to problems with no back up support. We were told to be teachers, but they never helped us grow or supported us during conflicts.

Management could do much better when it comes to taking care of their employees. This place is unorganized and has poor communication skills. My patience has grown from working with children and I have learned how to better care for children.

Bright Horizons was my first big job, and it was a great experience. Sometimes it could be stressful working with 20+ little kids that were ages 5-12, but it truly was a joy to work with them. The management at the center is great, and they were so encouraging to me throughout my time there.

Nice place to work
Transition Teacher (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXApril 23, 2015
Pay was a little low but most childcare centers are not going to pay you much. They offered good benefits which was a plus and I loved my coworkers, kids and their families. It was a nice place to work. I am currently a teacher at an elementary school but would come back and work here in the summer.
