Teacher (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 3, 2017
With a supportive management team, Knowledge Universe would go a much further, and have better retention. From center the center things change. I would say that some things change for the better However, more consistency would be beneficial.
Teacher Aide (Former Employee) – Braintree, MA – August 1, 2017
In tge tune that I was employed there were changes taken place, not all positive. There seems to be a lack of management and more of gossip when it cones to staff. Infant teacher was reported to director for force feeding with no disciplinary action. There is a high turn over rate and not enough advancement.
No to little benefits, min raises, cut corners to save money like running out of sanitary items and cutting down on the kids lunches
Lead teacher (Current Employee) – Brooklyn Park, MN – July 31, 2017
A typical day at Knowledge Universe is very fast- paced, we can have any where from 4-20 infants in our classroom so we are always feeding, changing or making kids laugh. My time at Knowledge Universe has taught me so many great things about how children learn and grow.
watching the children learn and be excited to learn
Assistant Site Teacher (Former Employee) – Sagamore Hills, OH – June 16, 2017
I enjoyed working for Knowledge Universe/Champions, however I requested to have more hours during the summer and that was not granted to me. I did not receive any health benefits from the company. We made sure to supervised our children at all times. The children had a great time with our location and we enjoyed the summer field trips.
Program Specialist and Lead PreK Teacher (Former Employee) – Carrollton, TX – May 24, 2017
The staff can be hit or miss, the kids are what make it worth it. The pay is too small for the tasks and responsibilities required. But overall is it a great spot to start if you're getting your feet wet in early childhood education.
Head Teacher (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – May 24, 2017
Very unorganized. Got promoted, which included a ton of new responsibilities and never got a raise. Very under appreciated, except by some of the parents. For everything that the teachers have to do (diapers changes, talking with parents, keeping up to date paperwork, checking children in and out, etc.) we were all WAY underpaid.
patient have time for everyone multitask deal with kids all the time communication with parents every day schedule we have to be really strict in the time because we had a certain time for lunch and nap time.
Center Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Arizona – March 7, 2017
On boarding process is practically non existent. Job description before being hired looks great on paper and not what you would think. no consistency. Labor system is a joke. Too many out dated systems and tons of programs for different tasks. IT department is no help. Human Resources take forever to gain support. Always playing phone tag in trying to get answers. The standard is always "I don't know how to do this try calling this person who has no idea how to do this either.". Will be burnt out in 4 months if you plan on doing 10-12 hour shifts every week with no support.Buildings are outdated and need tlc. Directors are doing the trench jobs instead of Directing.
Well thought out methods of interacting with children
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – February 14, 2017
Rules and guidelines for every aspect of interacting with the children is well thought out and very helpful. One would learn a lot from working here, especially under all the right circumstances. Kinder care constantly pushes its employees to be better for the students, and tries to educate its teachers by providing free education; I think that is every employee's dream.
Benefits, ability to nurture not only children but also employees
