    Pros

    Working with Children and watching them grow

    Cons

    Benefits and pay are horrible in New York State
    Most classrooms are chaotic because teachers let the students do whatever they want. The company policy says it is very similar to a Montessori school but management wants structure in the classroom with no policy in place for that.
    Company policies are very strict but very contradictory.
    Most people have to put in overtime and work their days off due to management scheduling and frequent occasions of staff quitting the job.
    You don't get paid for the time you clean your room at the end of the night.
    Supplies are not delivered on time (but that's just a general teacher problem).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff!
    Know that staff is not perfect! Treat your staff with respect and kindness!

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

    Pros

    *The staff is amazing. Everyone gets along great, no drama!
    *Awesome administration that helps in any way they can!
    *Great parents!

    Cons

    *The company policies seem to contradict itself at times making it very confusing.
    *Breaks are horrible. Sometimes all of my breaks were given to me in the beginning of the day, leaving me stranded for the rest of the day with no relief.
    *They don't really train you on the schedules and flow of each classroom you're going to be in. Sometimes you are just thrown into a class full of kids and you have to just figure it out. I feel like its setting us up to fail.
    *Most of the staff there are underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth! They work so hard and I feel like people wouldn't leave so often.
    Before throwing a new employee into a classroom, give them an overview of the schedule/ flow of the classroom and let them know of children who may have special needs that need to be attended to.
    Breaks should be given throughout the day not all at once.

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

    Pros

    The interview was easy, the facilities are nice and the hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, the work is difficult with little to no help/acknowledgement or benefit. Some of the policies make no sense and make the teachers lives very difficult. The classrooms are underfunded. Assistant teachers sometimes have to do all the work of lead teachers with none of the pay or privilege. They expect a lot with very little training

    Advice to Management

    Consider listening more closely to the needs of your employees. Find out what things each classroom needs and focus on helping teachers make their classrooms more efficient rather than filling the schools quota. Too much emphasis is placed on filling the school to capacity rather than the actual students and teachers

    Pros

    cute kids, adorable kids and even cuter kids

    Cons

    Staff members complained to me how things were being run. Said they hated the location after 2 days of employment i understood why they claimed i had gottin into it with a parent and lied to my temp agency. When i called to ask them why they would say such a thing she claimed they never said that. That a kid claimed he was pulled off of his bike by his legs and they were "investigating everyone" i personally believe they were trying to assign blame and blamed me.

    Advice to Management

    quit

    I worked at Tutor Time Child Care Learning Center full-time

    Pros

    If you love to teach, and are preparing for a job in education, this job is great preparation for learning how to deal with different situations, parents and management.

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay, long hours, management is unqualified, high turnover rate. The company has this horrible policy of giving 2 hour lunches, then asking you to come come back and practically work another shift, avoiding paying overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your wages. No one could possibly live, or care to stay for the poverty pay you offer. It's a disservice to the children and parents because teachers leave so quickly. I qualified for welfare because the pay was so low and I have a Masters degree! That says a lot about how poorly teachers are compensated and the lack of concern of the children's needs. Parents were fed up with food qualify as well. This company cuts corners in all the wrong places.
