A place to put your creativity to work.
Master Teacher (Current Employee), Nichols Hills, OKOctober 21, 2014
Pros: paid vacations
Cons: short breaks, healthcare
Everyday at The Learning Center is productive and exciting. Teaching children and watching them develop is the most rewarding thing in this field. We have a diverse community filled with creative, energetic people. The hardest part of the job is letting your children go and move up to a new class. The most rewarding part of the job is knowing you are the stepping stone to a brighter life.

A fun place to work
Pre-Kindergarten Teacher (Former Employee), Bryant ARAugust 14, 2014
Pros: working with childrean
Cons: the company did not advance people or their saliers much.
Opening the building for the day, setting up each classroom an all the activities for the day, preparing snacks and beverages, driving kid's to and from daycare to their schools, making sure vans were clean at all times.
I learned a lot in management and working with children, driving a small day care van.
The hardest part of the job was leaving my kid's.
The best part of the job was all that I learned, the great staff and kids.

This place made me laugh!
Lead Teacher (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLJuly 19, 2013
Pros: pay is ok, raise every year and free lunch (some days), teachers are great and hard working.
Cons: managers gossip and are disrespectful and high turn, difficult to advance
Starting off I would like to say. I loved working in my classroom and my children were awesome, of course you know you have one or two that will have behavior issues but that is expected in any child care center you work at. But this job made me laugh on many occasions and not in a good way. Managers are the main issue within these centers. The managers the owner puts in these positions become to controlling because most of them get hired within the company and once they became managers they start to treat employees like s***. I had a manager which once was a teacher that also trained me and was a person I actually looked up to there. She was the only one I looked up to there and I had her put her fingers in my face and she disrespected me on so many levels all because she lied and was talking about other managers and staff members and didn't want to own up to it. So instead she treated me like s***. What makes me laugh is they still expect you to respect them at the end of the day after they treat you like s***. The owner of these centers is only out for money and she will continue to let the worst children stay enrolled there to get their money. When I say worst, I mean children that would physically hit the teachers and hurt other children around them for attention. I had one child that would throw Bucket of Toys, chairs, books. Anything he could get his hands on. He would randomly get up climb cots and tables forcing you to get up from circle time or any teaching time to stop him. This would happen about 23 times a day ( I counted). Image this in your classroom 23 times – more... or more a day. If you would buzz the office no one would come. They expected you to control it on your own even if he was hurting me or the children. Management also have a problem gossiping with employees but try to tell their employees not to gossip. My mama always said practice what you preach. You can be the best employee in the building but if you miss a day or two because your sick, you then become unreliable and your job is at stake. They make promises they can't keep. I was promised a Management position and never got it, even when there was 3 openings...yes i said 3! I admit I had a few call outs but all employees from each center plus some managers said I should of got moved up and was one of the hardest workers there and could have made a big difference in the center because everyone looked up to me and respected me. They came to me before a manager and I was only a teacher. I knew it was sad when managers started to come to me. So I left because I was not able to advance here even when promised. What I loved most about my job here was my kids and I cried everyday up to my last day. The kids is why I do what I do. I just couldn't take enough of the stress of no help from management when needed, the disrespect from mangers, and not being able to advance when I knew they knew I deserved it. Also they have a high turn over so expect to work a lot of Overtime. I never minded the overtime myself until I found out they didn't pay time in a half for OT! This made me very upset. I noticed it really when I started my new job (as a manager :-) ) I worked OT and noticed a big difference. And I was making the same as I did their minus 5 cent. I'm only 3rd key manger and still a teacher as well so I didn't mind that I didn't make more. I do make more now though. They do give raises but they play favorites. I was lucky to be one of those but not a favorite enough to move up. Anyways just watch your back if you decide to work here. Don't get involved with gossiping and being friends with managers because they will turn on you. Control your controllable's which is staying in your classroom doing your job and go home. Don't expect to advance if you have your director's. I personally would not come back here even if they bought me on as a manager. To much stress. I would recommend you search hard before you think about coming here. – less

Warm working environment
Teachers Assistant (Current Employee), Mesquite, TXNovember 27, 2012
Pros: vacation and holidays
Cons: the salary for teachers assistants is low.
Management ensures that the working environment is safe and productive. The staff is in a o-operative working environment where employees work together to accomplish a common goal of helping to prepare the students for the world outside of school.

The hardest part of the job is not making enough money.

The most enjoyable part of the job is making a difference in the life of the students and showing them that even though they make wrong choices they can still be successful.
