LEAD TEACHER (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – June 18, 2013
La Petite Academy is a great school. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming. The director and assistant are hard working and loving. The children and their parents are the best part. You develop such wonderful relationships with families!
free lunch, good hours
very long lunch breaks to cut off overtime, low salary
Teacher (Current Employee) – Cypress, TX – November 8, 2017
This job feild is stressful but so loving at the same time when you are seeing infants and toddlers all day. The cons are no advancements, company does not go through with something they tell you, the company is great I received many benefits when Hurricane Harvey hit through Corporate. Management is never on the same page (at my location)
Early Preschool Teacher (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 3, 2017
I enjoyed my time while I was employed there. The staff was friendly and management was fair. I loved working with the children. It was just too low paying of a position to stay at that point in my career.
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Taylors, SC – November 2, 2017
The management are unbelievable, the place is hot mess no control at all since you enter the center until you go home you have to hold your breath I worked after that for another company truly can tell la petite it’s not daycare unfortunately is a market .
Preschool Teacher (Current Employee) – Castle Rock, CO 80104 – November 1, 2017
Great work atmosphere. Lots of students, good management. Building is in good aesthetic condition. Uniforms are instilled on staff. Most teachers/staff are friendly/communicative towards parents and visitors.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – October 31, 2017
There was not very much consistency in the teachers that would show up, or show up on time. Management was very slack about this, causing much stress to other workers. The atmosphere was petty and gosspiy, with everyone talking behind everyone else's back and people poking their noses into everyone's business. Children were judged racially and so were parents. I may be out of a job, but it's better than working there.
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 28, 2017
The kids make it worth it but, expect to take work home with you daily because prep time is unheard of and breaks are hit or miss.If you have a great director it is better but, most are to worried about the bottom line because of corporate to care about the teachers.
Benefits for full time employees are average
Breaks are rare, demand is high, to much paperwork
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – October 27, 2017
As a teaching assistant for a summer at La Petite, I felt that we were taken advantage of. My lunches were stretched so that I could be there longer but not meet the hour requirements for being paid full time. There was no organization throughout the day and while it was advertised as a learning environment with a curriculum, no curriculum was enforced.
Treated new employees better than veteran employees
Teacher (Current Employee) – Washington State – October 25, 2017
New hires get paid more with very little education than someone who has been there for 11 years, a lead teacher and is just half a quarter short of an associates degree. They play favorites and let some teacher get away with doing whatever they want and some get talked to for everything. Would not recommend them to my worst enemy. Would give it negative stars if I could.
VPK Teacher Teach a VPK (Former Employee) – Kissimmee, FL – October 22, 2017
Work hours are cut during the summer time. You do not always work the hours scheduled. They can send you home early when not enough students are in the center to support the number of staff members. Management does not support teachers well and do not communicate well with staff in regards to changes, expectations, and/or conflict resolution.
