Welcome to Tutor Time Learning Center! My name is Alison Simmons and I am the Center Director at Tutor Time Learning Center, Matthews.
Tutor Time offers Infant Care, Preschool, and a School-Age After-Care program that provides the perfect foundation of learning and development. Our top-notch Life Smart Curriculum is inspired by the Multiple Intelligences theory of learning and education. The heart of this theory is the belief that children learn and understand in different ways. LifeSmart educators value the variety of ways in which children learn and provide opportunities to develop their minds abilities through different approaches, materials, and experiences.
Our school culture fosters positive and nurturing child/adult interactions which sets the foundation for student learning, an emphasis on health and safety, and a team of distinguished educators which helps us stand out from other child care programs in the area. Our entire team of educators are certified in first aid and CPR, attend monthly training sessions covering a variety of topics, and participate in yearly training to stay up-to-date on best practices and child development.
We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Our exclusive mobile app, SproutAbout, provides families with access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, real-time updates about your child's day, and the ability to message your child's educators directly.

I've always had a passion for helping others, a love for school supplies and writing on the chalkboard, and always being the teacher when playing school! I take pride in the fact that I have been privileged enough to turn my passion into an amazingly fulfilling career as center director where I have been able to be a part of children's growth and development, witnessing the "a ha" moments in a child's day, and building lasting relationships with families and my team.

Since 2008 I have worked in the education/youth development field in various positions including youth advisor, after school program director and dean of students. Now I find new reasons to smile and laugh on a daily basis working with children. It has been my life’s work and I’m glad to be on this journey for our little friends and their families.
