Teachers Assistant (Former Employee), Fort Belvoir, VAFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: going outside with the kids, doing arts and crafts with the kids
Cons: management
Typical day at working at Bright Horizons, depends on which location and your employers. I learned alot from the children I supervised, and alot from my coworkers. My coworkers, were just that coworkers we didnt feel like friends or sisters and brothers. The hardest part of the job was having to see the babies not feeling well at certain times.

Good pay, Bad Management, Bad Communication, Favoritism,
Center Support (Former Employee), Lafayette, INFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: good pay, parents were nice, teachers care a lot about the children
Cons: very bad management, ran out of gloves/etc, favoritism
I have been working in childcare for over 8 years and never have I seen such bad management. They show favoritism; allowing the staff they like to get away with a lot and staff that won't suck up to them they try to fire or make so unhappy they quit. They wouldn't allow us to tell children that they couldn't yell, kick, or hit us or others and their – more... favorite saying was "They are JUST 1 (or 2,3,4,5)". We ran out of gloves to change the children with every few weeks and the menu was rarely correct due to them running out of the food they were supposed to serve. I wouldn't but my child in this center, nor would I work there ever again. – less

Great for kids to go bad place to work
Associate Teacher (Former Employee), Greenville, scFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: great long lasting relationships with parents and child. great teacher parent communication.
Cons: it is an understatement to say that management was a joke. immature staff (not all but most)
Built a great relationship with several parents and children. Still interact with many of the parents and children... some have become very good friends. If I was a parent I would take my child there but if I was looking for a job I would not advise anyone to work there. Staff was full of gossip and dishonest people. Terrible communication between management – more... at staff. Very immature and lack of basic business comman sense. Overworked and underpaid with no reward, no appreciation, not even a pat on the back. – less

Fun work place
Lead Teacher (Former Employee), Commack, NYJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: fun environment
Cons: not a lot of room for advancement, low pay
Loved working with kids and their families to help them through their developmental milestones. Management was fun and helpful. Coworkers were great! The hardest part was working with difficult parents, but the most rewarding part was when you got through to them and actually helped their child.

productable, fun place to work at
VPK teacher (Former Employee), New Tampa, FloridaDecember 27, 2013
Pros: knowledgeable staffpositive, supervisor, healthcare
Cons: no cons
I was the lead teacher of four and five year olds. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Steve, the director, was always positive and his door was always open to ask questions or needed to talk. The parents were positive and they were easy to talk to when they would come in and either pick up or drop off their child. The children were a delight. – more... They were all eager to learn and I enjoyed getting to know the children by talking with them or joining a center they were in. I taught at the Bright Horizons in New Tampa. I would definitely return to this job if I lived in Tampa. – less
