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

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for growth with the company such as moving up from a teacher to management position or opportunities to work with the National Support Center. The children and families are wonderful and it is a great mix of being able to interact with children and be a manager. The company has a world-class curriculum developed by early childhood experts and the company is a huge advocate for advancements in early childhood education. Company is committed to providing high-quality care and achieving national accreditation. Company leadership is very inspiring and forward thinking. The company has good benefits for staff.

    Cons

    There is little to no support in recruiting of high-quality teachers. Centers often do not receive support when they are short staffed and are still expected to enroll more children even when they don't have the staff to support it. Center Directors and Assistant Directors are expected to work in classrooms when short on staff instead of using substitute companies for help. National Support Center departments do not seem to be educated on the realities of day to day operations in a center and don't seem to care about what goes on at the field level even though the field level is the way the company makes money. Even though the company leadership is very inspiring, their message and vision for the company does not seem to be getting executed in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KinderCare/Knowledge Universe needs to do more to support centers with recruiting of high-quality teachers and need to be willing to compensate accordingly for that quality. The company needs to allow centers to use reputable substitute teacher companies when short staffed so current teachers feel supported with consistent help and managers are able to do their jobs. Center Directors are not able to grow their businesses properly if they are in classrooms so often. The company needs to compensate employees better across the board. Center Directors have an enormous amount of responsibility and stress put on them and should be paid accordingly. Executive team needs to find a way to make sure their vision is getting executed in the field.
