Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

A Powerful Beginning to a Lifetime Love of Learning

Childtime’s educational philosophy is based on the Reggio Emilia approach, named after the Italian city and the surrounding villages where the method took root after World War II.

Central to this philosophy is the belief that secure relationships with responsive and respectful adults provide the basis for all learning. With these relationships in place, children develop a capacity for trust, competence and independence that helps them grow as students and people.

Our The Empowered Child™ curriculum strengthens children’s emerging physical, social-emotional, cognitive and language skills, to prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond. We do this with developmentally appropriate experiences, wondrous classroom spaces and responsive teacher-child relationships.

From our dedicated teachers to our administrators and support staff, everyone at Childtime is committed to:

•Providing a secure, caring and enriched environment that promotes learning and the development of the whole child.
•Developing lifelong relationships and creating family solutions that enhance the quality of life for our children and their families.
•Providing a fun, challenging work environment that fosters teamwork, inspires excellence and encourages contribution by all team members.
•Leveraging technology to develop innovative learning products and solutions.

A Typical Day

Our curriculum engages children in learning through play, large and small group activities, and interactions with peers and teachers. Children are learning fundamental concepts such as problem solving, critical thinking, reading, writing, and mathematics that ensure Kindergarten readiness.
