I have worked for this company for 5 years. Recently, I fell ill with possible COVID-19 and I found out that Kindercare is not following federal and state regulations around sick pay. They literally do not care about their minimum wage workers. I'm currently looking for new employment. I can't stand the culture of this company anymore.
Pros
You get paid, sometimes the kids are cute
Cons
Overworked employees, little opportunity for advancement

Management was terrible and unprofessional. Very petty and not willing to help or assist. I was hired as full time but never received full time hours.

The overall job is fun and being able to make a difference in each child's life is fulfilling. However, there is little room for advancement, raises aren't given as told in the beginning, pay is low.
Pros
Children learning and growing....teachers are excellent
Cons
Low pay

Management is horrible. They only care about money not the children or the staff. They don’t care about children being sick, they let them come to school sick. They do not clean the school very well. It’s so dirty.

They care about making families happy. They do not believe employees. Constantly moving kids before parents know about it to balance ratio.they want teachers to watch kids and if kids destroy posters etc they blame it on teachers.

The director was changing time cards so you’d receive less hours, there were multiple reports of children being abused, there was never enough staff, the list could go on and on on why it was a horrible center to be at.

I worked at Kinder Care Totem lake for 16 months. Management was poor and the work place was dysfunctional. After a Left, one of the parents who still had their daughter enrolled there said it was like the inmates were running the prison. It got really bad. they charge large fees and the children are not the first ones thought of, its how much money the company can make.

Kindercare was a great base for anyone who wants to get into childcare or who have a great love of working with kids. The employees were great for the most part beside a few. The assistant manager is amazing with what she does and super helpful! 10/10 recommend this job and would possibly come back in the near future

There are high expectations as a KinderCare teacher, which is to be expected as you're taking care of other people's children. The wages for teachers at KinderCare are very low. All teachers are college educated, yet most barely make above minimum wage.

Management only concerned with enrolling more children even when a room was full or not enough staff. Management would not assist with behavior issues or follow DCF contagious disease policies. Management seems to be poorly trained and did not attempt to learn state regulations.

The children and co-workers are great, but there is no room for advancement and they do not compensate well. The curriculum is all given to you so there is not much room for creativity and variation

I applied through an online job board. There were some adjustment problems as I thought there would only be women employees (not that I am not ok about it) but the company is quite open minded and helps struggling individuals especially high schoolers with training and benefits as needed.It needs more communication and equality amongst its employees.
