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
The job is highly stressful with an extremely low pay if you drive the bus they expect you to do it for free the children are wonderful and amazing but the company itself is too demanding and refuses to give workers what they worth you can work there for years and still don't get a raise.
the children are great and the company provides many supplies
Head Start Teacher (Former Employee) – Powder Springs, GA – June 29, 2018
I loved my Director and enjoyed working with both the staff and families of La Petite!
The school provided much support and trainings throughout my tenure. I will always remember the love and nuturing given via our Administrators and that in return given to the families via the teachers and myself.
I felt at home and lived close by the job never wanting to leave at the end of a day.
I also worked during the summer works and help organized the end of the year classroom graduations.
The culture awareness month was one of my favorite. I also loved the field trips planned and the children most of all.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 27, 2018
In a typical day I would work with the 2-3 year old children and then prepare lunch and snack with the same rate of pay. I was not pleased with the support of the facility. The team and the work that was required from all of us was not supported verbally are financially for the amount of expected work that is required.
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – June 26, 2018
I do like working here , but as a Assistant Director we are like the person behind the scenes, that is there but seldom seen. I like working to achieve a goal when working on a project or helping children reach a goal.
The interaction, field trip s with children, lunch
No consistent hours, not knowing what I am doing from day to day or which class. Being hit and toys through at teachers.
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – June 25, 2018
Working with the children was wonderful, the other lead teachers were helpful. The only problem was the management cut my lunch time so another teacher could take their lunch. Which of course was unfair.
PRESCHOOL TEACHER (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 25, 2018
La Petite is a company that puts their corporate employees first. You may be lucky as I was to work for a good management team who cares for the their staff but if not you are surely sol. They put all of their money into things they don't need and give very little money to their centers staff and schools.
Most employees really do love their children they care for.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – June 25, 2018
Employees were very welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, hours of employment are not guaranteed and if there is too many staff members to child ratio, someone would have to go home and not complete their shift which affects overall salary. Enjoyed the work and the children. It allowed me to be creative with lessons.
