KinderCare Learning Centers Reviews

Kindercare is a great employer in my opinion especially for a mom trying to get back in the workforce after having a child. They offer you to bring your child to the center you work out for a very minute fraction of the fee. You get great benefits as well as education assistance and flexible hours so that you can spend time with family as well. They are very focused on training employees and giving second chances as well. I love working for Kindercare and best thing is they are all over and offer company transfers to other locations if you move as well! Very versatile company to work for!

The upper management within the regional portions of the company do not treat their employees well and I felt as though I was always replaceable. The children that I worked with were the main reason that I stayed. The work schedule was demanding for a full time student and I felt as though I had no time outside of work to do anything. They were quite resistant when I attempted to renegotiate my hours. I emailed my regional supervisor when I gave my notice and received no response which was disheartening after all of the work I put in for the company. Overall, the experience taught me quite a lot about working with children and at a school system.
I have worked at two different Kindercare centers. While each center has their share of positives and negatives, as with any workplace, overall working with the children is truly a joy. In my opinion, however, they do not fairly compensate their workers. During new hire training, you are told that you are a teacher. You are expected to lesson plan, complete developmental assessments and submit child portfolios. Unfortunately, they do not compensate you in the same way public school teachers are compensated. In addition, on site training in the classroom has been lacking in my experience. There seems to be no clear-cut training, expectations etc. from center to center so it feels a bit like a guessing game.
