Complaint / review text:
Please do not put your children in any Kindercare center. They truly are all about the money and getting enrollments up. They make the center look pristine and your initial tour may seem excellent, however, I have seen the directors lie to prospective parents and say whatever they think they parents want to hear (so they will enroll their kids).
Teachers never receive necessary classroom supplies or materials for the children, so it makes it very difficult to make arts/crafts or educational projects of any sort. Because I cared about these children and doing a good job, I would go and spend my own money (of which I hardly have any) in order to buy supplies and materials for the children and the classroom. I would go above and beyond all the teachers in the school (and I had the most education, too) and I was never appreciated or thanked in any way. I was there for a year and never received my promised pay raise after a promotion. They fired the cleaning staff, and therefore required teachers to mop, sweep, vaccuum, sanitize toys, chairs, and tables, and clean bathrooms every day ALL WHILE supposedly taking care of and TEACHING the children. There is no way that much education is going on when teachers are having to work as maids at the same time. It simply is not possible to be doing both at the same time. I was working like a dog.
Kindercare would move kids around constantly to other classes (to maintain required ratios), and they would consistently send MY classroom of children in to another room in the afternoons so that I could watch younger children from another class in my room (so that their teacher could go home for the day). Forget about planning exciting lessons each day - you never know if they will send your kids away.
Also, because their sole focus is on upping enrollments, they will not suspend/remove any child from the center, even if their behavior is dangerous. I had several out of control, violent children come through my class, and they refused to help me in any way or kick the children out. They would just turn a deaf ear to me, even though I felt that the other children were at risk. I did not want to be held liable if anything were to happen in that room, but they did not care. Needless to say, I am no longer there.
I repeat, do not put your child in a kindercare!
