    Pros

    No good reasons to work at Tutor Time in Itasca, IL

    Cons

    The Classrooms are ALWAYS over ratio. Management does nothing to help. The children there are not well behaved and was sometimes at the daycare from 6am to 6:30pm. There is not enough funding for proper nutrition so many days children are eating beans or some type of "casserole".
     Management promised extra help in my classroom and I received nothing.
    The Management spoke to staff like they were children. Did nothing to help but would give an attitude if you had to take a sick day.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff. Stop making excuses and help out in classrooms where we are over ratio!

    I worked at Tutor Time Child Care Learning Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've meet to two nice coworkers. Still friends to this day.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to start. My first week was kind of chaotic I was thrown into different classrooms because they were so understaffed. Many of the teachers we're really rude and made you feel so unwelcome. The director was probably the worst boss I had ever had. There was so much lack of training that if you messed up the director would call you and her office and basically tell you everything that you did wrong but let's remember she was the one training so she failed on my part. 12 children was too much for one teacher there should be three teachers in the classroom. Overworked for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    I was only with the company for about 5 months and in those five months I've seen about 7 different teachers quit so my advice is to pay attention and see exactly what management is doing wrong.

    Pros

    Playing with cute babies, watching them grow and seeing the smiles on their faces. Free food during lunch time. Sensible hours.

    Cons

    Terrible management! Director and co-director would basically sit around all day and not do much. Also they can be very rude and condescending. They cut hours without notice. Constantly understaffed. Toxic co-workers who are lazy and don't want to help. No organization. This place left me depressed, overworked, and almost to the point where I was going to collapse. Constantly switching kids around to stay in ratio and also too many babies for one person to handle. 1 to 4 ratio is too much. As a lead teacher they would never inform me of when I was getting a new baby, they would just one day pop up. No consideration for how the classroom is run. 2 people would handle 9 babies on some days! OVERWORKED.OVERWORKED.OVERWORKED.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about money all the time and think about your workers! Put 3 people in the infant room at all times!

    Pros

    Depending on the room you're in, the kids can be great.
    Half the staff care a ton about the kids in the center
    Management is supportive and typically flexible.

    Cons

    Overworked and under paid.
    Other half of the staff were awful workers and should have been fired on many occasions.
    Lots of gossip.
    Management is overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for awesome employees or fire the bad ones
