Every day, we see firsthand how reading expands a child’s horizons. Our belief that all children should have access to books both at school and at home - leads us to participate in literacy initiatives across the nation.
It’s our people who make Knowledge Universe great. That’s why we work hard to build an array of benefits that keep our employees and their families healthy and secure.
Comprehensive Health Benefits
KU offers full-time employees and their eligible dependents medical, pharmacy, dental, and vision coverage. New employees are eligible for benefits after 30 days of employment.
KU offers programs to provide financial security in case of an accident or illness;
- Employer Paid Basic Life and Accidental, Death and Dismemberment (AD&D)
- Additional Voluntary Life and AD&D for employee, spouse, domestic partner and child(ren)
- Voluntary Short-Term Disability
- Voluntary Long-Term Disability
- Emergency Travel Assistance
Domestic Partner Benefits
Qualified opposite-sex and same-sex partners of employees are eligible for our medical, dental, vision, and voluntary life and AD&D benefits.
Retirement Savings Plan
Employees have an excellent opportunity to save for retirement through the company’s retirement plan options. We are dedicated to help our employees reach their retirement goals through the employer match program, and the comprehensive selection of investment fund offerings.
Pre-tax benefit programs are designed to help control the financial cost of benefits for employees by deducting premiums before taxes are calculated on pay. This reduces the taxable income and increases take-home pay. The programs included are medical, dental, vision, and health flexible spending accounts (HFSA).
KU offers substantial employee discounts with any company-owned center, including childcare, preschool services, extended learning programs and more.
We offer our employees reimbursement for some eligible adoption-related expenses.
Work/Life Balance Programs
We understand that employees need time away from work to rest and rejuvenate, attend to personal, family, medical, and/or other issues, as well as to celebrate holidays. That’s why we offer a competitive time-off package including vacation, paid personal time, holiday pay, bereavement, and jury duty. KU also offers a free employee assistance program (EAP) to employees and their immediate family, as well as an array of health and wellness programs to support and improve our employees wellbeing.
Nurturing an appetite for learning is at the core of who we are at Knowledge Universe. So we understand that education enriches our personal and professional lives beyond measure. All full-time and part-time employees are eligible for Education Assistance with a calendar year maximum.
Employee Discount Program
Being the largest provider of early childhood education has its advantages. Our employees receive great discounts from national retailers including wireless carriers, travel, entertainment and even vehicles. Employees also receive a significant corporate discount with Weight Watchers®.
*Benefit packages are determined by job classification and length of service. Not all benefits are applicable to every position and may differ based on company/line of business.
