Too much other stuff to do besides teach. No feedback from management.
Assistant Teacher, KinderCare, Soapstone Rd (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – 17 August 2019
Enjoyed working there at first, but it became obvious that budget cuts were coming. AD made sure we were all out at our scheduled time, but they didn't have a cleaning service and teachers were supposed to fit in chores before they left including cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming and cleaning hallways. Lunch hours were then extended to 1-1/2 hour, basically leaving no time to teach yet we were expected to fit in curriculum. I was the last one hired. They made up an excuse out of the blue to fire me because I was "disrespectful to the kids". They told me they had observed me - NOT. I asked for those records and they wouldn't show me. Parents loved me. I constantly heard other teachers yelling at kids, but I only did when needed. I was also thrown into the role of co-teacher instead of asst. and wasn't reimbursed for that. The principal never came to me to talk about any issues. I never met the dm, who was there to fire me for reasons she had not seen. Found out she was later fired as well. I complained to HR. The rep never returned my calls. When she finally did, she said the accusations were founded. I have since moved on to another preschool with rave reviews. I DO NOT recommend KinderCare

I worked for Kindercare for over a year and was trained for about two weeks. I was thrown into a broken center with AR’s that were not managed and employer moral that needed so much work! My DM made sure I knew I was not her favorite, and just who was. This company does not choose wisely when it comes to leadership. I have been a director for over 15 years, and have never dealt with so much unethical behavior

No room for growth. Low pay. Stroked on hours. Inconsiderate about traveling mileage for non effective meetings. They require you to go to meeting even outside of your city and then expect you to be back at your site on time. There are no perks. The salary does not equal the work at all. You’re expected to eh higtut there are no rewards. A
