Interaction with Families and children.
Assistant Teacher (Current Employee), Markham, OntNovember 25, 2013
Pros: yoga
Cons: n/a
My typical day at work would consist of me to observe the children that enter in my care, plan my activites based on what I have seen, as well as interacting with them while the child is learning through their play and experience.

its all smoke and mirrors
Primary Teacher (Current Employee), Durham, NCOctober 19, 2014
Teachers and Children out of ratio in each classroom.
I have learned about diversity.
Management is disorganized.
Co-workers are friendly and we help one another as much as we can.
The most difficult part about the job is knowing the level of stress I experience each day.
The best part of the job is the conversations with the children and their families.

Great Opportunity
Associate Teacher (Former Employee), Wilmington, DEOctober 14, 2014
Pros: great teamwork, positive enviroment, excellent leaders, co-workers become friends
Cons: low pay, children grow and move on to the next teacher
One of the best places that I have worked. It felt more like a family coming together each day for the same cause rather going to work. We watched families grow in front of our eyes one child at a time each teacher taking a chance to impact each child. It was a great experience. I love Bright Horizons

Great Ideals / Poor Management

I loved working with the children and families, but the management changed from following the best practice and encouraging to the company wants money and will stop at nothing to get it.

Productive and energetic work place.
Head Teacher (Former Employee), Madison, NJOctober 2, 2014
Pros: great work environment.
Cons: not enough aid sometimes
A typical day at work was very energetic, fun filled activities and time management. We had to make sure each child used the bathroom, eat their food, and make sure they understood the lessons that were being taught.

I learned at this job how to be organized and work as a team.

Co-workers were very helpful and energetic as well.

Hardest part of the – more... job was creating new ways to teach the same thing in order to keep the students interest in the subject.

The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the students reaction to when they could do something on their own and learn something new. – less

I just started working at Bright Horizons in June & everything started off great, until ALOT of things changed. The company itself is a great company to work because there is room to grow, but it all depends on your location. My day at Bright Horizons is busy, yet stressful sometimes.

Teacher (Former Employee), NHSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: clean, organized and friendly atmosphere
Cons: low raises, no discounts for employee children (you cannot afford it otherwise)
I was very happy, but I kept waiting and waiting for an opportunity to bring my infant son. After a long run around, it was revealed they could not afford it. BH is a multi-million (maybe billion) dollar NATIONAL corporation. There are great perks to this, but I was just a number and to bring my one child would break their bank and it broke my heart.
