I very much enjoy kids & making people happy & smile . I am a people pleaser and like to see people walk away with a big smile on their face . I like sings & dancing , teaching kids how to interact with others & everyday basic skills
Teacher (Former Employee) – Springboro, OH – January 12, 2018
Underpaid,constantly left alone at max ratio,teachers are not qualified and abusive,management and staff are nothing but drama,kids have severe behavior issues and you can't punish them, sent home all the time !!!!!
love working with the kids and the staff is pretty nice
Assistant Teacher (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 12, 2018
the amount of work they want us to do is way more than we get paid to do. they don't want to pay us anything but expect all this work. its not fair and i feel nobody can really live off of 9.00 because i'm barely making it myself so i honestly wouldn't recommend working here to anyone.
Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) – Davison, MI – January 8, 2018
Pretty typical Child Care Center. Good area, parents are reasonably understanding, program director is very supportive, senior staff are very bonded. This is a good first job, or perhaps a job for additional income after retirement.
Lead Teacher and Education Specialist (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – January 4, 2018
During my time working for this company I experienced mistreatment of employees by a constant turn over of staff and management. I gave it my best shot at trying to become a happy part of the "Rainbow team" however I would never send my child to this childcare chain nor would I ever recommend working for this company.
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – December 29, 2017
Between biting, spitting, hitting, kicking ect this place is awful. They don't protect their employees or the other children around. I got in trouble for picking a kid up and carrying him from the gym to class and told him no when he slapped me across the face then proceeded to hit me and later kick me. This is not a safe environment. Plus never have enough staff for bathroom breaks so you're always holding it. Management doesn't care as long as they are making their money. Very stressful environment always moving kids from class to class. No stability. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there. I feared for my safety a few times
Teacher (Current Employee) – NC – November 28, 2017
Some teachers make you feel not welcomed and that you don't belong there. Very stressful environment and too many chiefs and not enough Indians so to speak. In other words, some teachers control the place or feel that they have the authority and not follow authority.
Early Childhood Educator (Current Employee) – Apex, NC – November 11, 2017
There are several employees that get whatever they want as well as being able to do whatever they want. A handful of teachers get hours of "planning" whenever they want allowing them to spend large amounts of time out of their classrooms, while other teachers rarely get planning time and do not have enough support from management to run their classrooms efficiently
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – King, NC – November 5, 2017
A typical day is very busy in scheduling or covering rooms when short handed. Have learned how to manage up to 18 employees, keep paperwork under control and make sure the center is organized. I think the hardest part of my job is making sure all regulations and company policy is followed. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to see the children grow as they explore life.
Lead Teacher Toddler Room (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – November 5, 2017
Lack of management and help in classrooms makes getting things accomplished hard. Would go out of ratio consistently and got no immediate help. Good luck getting a bathroom break when it's needed. Kids are great besides the occassional spoiled undisiplined child, but dealing with picky parents is challenging. Deal with a lot of stress, parents don't realize how much we really do and put up with, and not worth the lack of pay.
Lead Teacher, Young Preschool (Former Employee) – Crescent Springs, KY – October 23, 2017
Like the title. It was fun, I loved the kids. Of course, it's a stressful job but at Rainbow, too stressful. Pay is low and when job title points a raise, you don't get it. Management doesn't compensate for their employees when on vacation or sick. There is no back up or good help, you pretty much shut up and do what you can. Everyone talks about everyone but is "friends" when around the certain person they just claimed to hate. No room for overtime which in most cases I was forced to do.
Lead Teacher in Pre-K Acadamy (Current Employee) – Millers Creek, NC – October 18, 2017
Loving environment for the children but stressful for the workers in trying to complete all the paperwork required daily/weekly and give the children all the time they deserve. Defiantly could have better benefits.
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – Indiana – October 15, 2017
This is the best company I have worked at. Corporate office does care about each individual and you just can’t go wrong with the curriculum the classrooms offer to the kids and the love for parents. There is so much included with Rainbow and so much support, they make it hard to fail.
