Company summary

Our Approach to Education

Our approach to learning makes all the difference, and the research shows it!

Little minds are wide open and ready to learn, and we have a unique way of encouraging children to become life-long learners. A recent study of 5000 KinderCare children using the nationally-recognized BRIGANCE® Early Childhood Screens III found that our students are exceeding expectations on their assessments.

  • Language and Literacy Development
  • Executive Function
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Wellness
  • Cognitive Development
  • Creative Expressions

Communication

This doesn't even deserve starts, honestly. Communication is the worst thing here. The managers are absolutely horrible with this.

Work-Life Balance

The managers at this location can have outside lives but want the employees to stay at least 30 min. past their scheduled time and want them to be married to the job, it is NOT worth it.

What I like about the company

The children, that is it

What I dislike about the company

Managers, the terrible communication, the managers not caring what outside things you have going on, can't take time off when able to
