Stay away from this company
Underpaid comparing to how much they charge the parents. Stressful work environment. Head office is a joke, they’re so cheap and disrespectful. Everything it’s a show. Site office is super unorganized, the director has no idea what she’s doing. Staff are miserable. Workplace is dirty and old fashioned.

Hight quality of food. High level of education. Safe environment
I am working in kids and company as a teacher. I am recommending here to my friends if they looking for a safe, clean, and perfect care centre for their kids. I saw all the children have lots of fun in the second floor playground, they also had a big separate nap room. It can make a amazing nap for them. The teachers provide good education for improving physical, cognitive, and affective outcome development of kids every day.

Don't do it!
From the very first day I saw red flags. Management likes to gossip about other staff and pin employees against one another. Pay is considerable low for all the work you are expected to do.

Great kids and families, some great coworkers, bad company culture.
I learned a lot while working at Kids & Company and appreciate the experience for its ups and downs. I had some really good coworkers and we balanced out each other’s interests or strengths, ensured that things were getting done and planned together. The kids were amazing, and I had the opportunity to begin learning about documentation, programming, etc. Having said that: While I was there, the turnover rate was high and staffing was an issue at times. Compensation is not adequate, particularly for a company as large and profitable as Kids & Company. Materials and curricula were limited and outdated and trying to update programming and documentation to be consistent with current best practices was difficult due to requirements about weekly curriculum and what could be put on walls, boards, etc. Staff relationships and management relationships were mixed from very strong to contentious, and there were some really great folks on staff and some who should probably find another field. Pretty much everyone ranged from professional to friendly with each other, but there could be underlying tension instead of communication and problem solving when concerns arose among staff. Professional development was extremely limited.
