Touching and knowledge
Certified Infant Teacher (Former Employee), Lawrence, MASeptember 9, 2013
Pros: learned everyday about the care of others young and old alike
Cons: having to long of lunches and coimg back to a crying room that missed there teacher
I would get to work most days by 8am. I would set up my classsroom for my early infants and check off on them. I would go over my curriculum and phone in on any missing infants to reassure there saftey and their health. All day doing activities and taking care of the well being of these wonderful little children.. I learned that paitients can get you – more... far. That managment can be great when working in harmony. The hardest part of the job was the end of the day the most enjoyable was spending quality and valuable time with our future leaders. – less

Focused more quantity over quality.
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Lawrence/North AndoverJune 30, 2013
Pros: children and families
Cons: money over quality
I have worked here since for 4 years and loved it. I went to college and came back hoping to be rehired but their hire person is more focused on hiring less experienced and cheaper workers. It has been affecting the the quality of their daycare creating more disappointed parents. The children are wonderful and so are the parents. With I could go back – more... but management has been caring less about their employees. HR never replies to your emails or picks up the phone. Just pick up and tell me why you refuse to offer me work. – less

Children should be the main focus of education not profits like Mickey D
teacher (Current Employee), brightonApril 21, 2013
Pros: mcdonald effect
Cons: lack of ingenuity and creative thinking....cookie cutter curriculum
Urgh, where do I begin developmentally appropriate practice is a joke take it from me I work for this company and the management couldnt care less about education . It is more about giving teachers a hard time doing their job instead of meeting the needs of every learner . The Hr continue to hire incompetent people and brush off the importance of training – more... good candidate well. Come on really! If LS would stop playing favorites this could actually be a decent company or best place to work. The hardest part is the babysitting that is still evident not among the kids but the teachers.

Low standards is also evident in their choices for where they focus the money, as a teacher at BRighton it makes people sick at work to watch what happens around here. I know I'm not alone in this view! – less

OK place to work for new, unexperienced Teachers
Preschool Teacher (Former Employee), Haverhill, MAMarch 8, 2012
Pros: great staff (teachers)
Cons: no longer a developmentally appropriate practice
You can learn the basics here. I had some fun times but this program is all about the money and not so much about what is best for the children anymore. Somewhere they lots what is important-the children!
