    I worked at Childcare Network

    Pros

    Working with the Children was the only Pro I had.

    Cons

    No room to grow. My pay started minimum wage and stayed minimum wage. The director at my center didn't care about the children or her employees just wanted to make sure she had children always coming in the door. She lied to parents all the time. We would be so over booked in a room and she would have 2-year-olds in with the infants which would be a huge problem. They never gave kids food on a schedule. No time off. It was horrilbe.

    I worked at Childcare Network full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much other than the teachers being saints and loving working with children.

    Cons

    Poor management. Poorly treated. Poor wages. Long hours. You will stay long past your shift without being asked to stay. During hiring you will be told one thing about the job and end up in another. Schedule told to you day to day never week by week. If you are sick or in the hospital you are still expected to come into work. Children have had contagious viruses and the director/ asst still allowed the children to come and never notified parents of the sickness. Constant hand, foot, and mouth going around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management needed all over

    I worked at Childcare Network

    Pros

    I love kids but the adults running the show are not competent.

    Cons

    high teacher turnover, no respect from management, all about the numbers and giving teachers the max# of children they can have which is often too many, especially with the younger kids, I was never told what my vacation or sick time benefits were, I could not be out without eye rolling and/or chastizing from the director/assistant director. Backbiting, disgruntled employees...a very unpleasant atmosphere in which to work. Also, you WILL be expected to come in even if you have a contagious disease like the flu or pinkeye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn who your true hard workers are, dont believe everything you hear...and realize that some of your favorites are abusing the kids.

    Pros

    Encourages new ideas and strategies to better the company and the work environment. You're not tied down to one way of doing something and everyone is open to new ideas. Very good at providing positive feedback as well as constructive criticism.

    Cons

    Since it is a growing business, the current corporate office is too small for the number of employees. But they are currently working on relocating to a bigger building.

    Pros

    Although large in size of employees and wide spread, being part of the organization feels like you are part of a family. Each department within the company truly cares about what they do and each school and director cares about the children in their care, the families and their staff. You have the ability to really grow here and to really make a difference!

    Cons

    Being a company that is very forward moving, we tend to wear a lot of hats. To some, that may be frustrating, but if you like to work hard and help as much as you can, then it is exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Childcare Network full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Childcare Network offers educational opportunities with room for growth. It also offers a comfortable work environment. I have learned many different skills that will help me throughout my career. I couldn't think of a better place to work. I love what I do and have fun doing it.

    Cons

    Sometimes when there is a change it is hard to adapt and it makes the job challenging. More team building activities would be a plus.
