    Working with children is rewarding no matter where you are.

    Take leadership trainings.

    Pros

    Decent Hours
    Supplies
    Size of Classroom
    Benefits
    discount for child care

    Cons

    No support for staff
    Too much paperwork
    Not enough training

    Advice to Management

    Support your teachers! A 10 to 1 ratio does not work when three of the children are autistic and/or non-verbal. Taking a child out of the room to sit at the front desk is NOT discipline.

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

    Pros

    The kids. You absolutely fall in love with the kids you work with. If you’re someone who’s already decided to dedicate your life to working with children, it’ll have all the pros of every other job you’ve had working with them. They’re hilarious and fun. Working with other people who are passionate about the development of children is a joy, everyone is hard working, kind hearted, and warm.

    Cons

    My director and district manager have no clue what they are doing as of running a facility. Ratios can be off, breaks are consistently missed, late lunches where the times are conveniently changed to when they were supposed to be on the login system. Training is confusing and does absolutely nothing for when it actually comes to the classroom. With the lack of teachers and subs, children don’t actually stay with their primary caregiver(unlike the programs advertising says) and are moved to a room where they can fit in. Sometimes this means children are in classrooms inappropriate for their age or with teachers that are unfamiliar. This creates a stressed environment for children and teachers both. Add missed breaks, late lunches and sometimes still being over ratio despite all of the exchanges of children, it leave teachers bitter and tired behind managements back. All of this on top of recording attendance of two separate sheets of paper, an app (where you also have the responsibility of taking photos and updating parents ALL day on every little thing) it begins to feel confusing on what you’re supposed to prioritize in the classroom, and often times it doesn’t not feel like your prioritizing the children, but pleasing corporate is.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t overload your teachers with so many responsibilities for little pay.
    The many responsibilities don’t only wear your poor teachers out, but hurts more when the appreciation or acknowledgement isn’t there for all that we do. Teachers work hard and it’s be great if they could provide more opportunities for feed back for change that don’t involve going straight to your director.
    Make sure each center has enough staff so people aren’t begging to leave work on their scheduled time, or just dying for their break to relieve themselves. And how about district managers that have a history in childcare and have a decent understanding of licensing? Directors that have organizational skills and can manage not just a classroom but a building full of them. Having enough staff would make it so the director could be in their office and not always in ratio. There’s already a standard in the child care industry that workers are underpaid and overworked, aim to be better than licensing (lower ratios) and aim to be better than the average center in the industry (fair pay for hard work).
