Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Silver Spring, MD!
My name is Stefanie Folta and I am the Director of the new Childtime in Silver Spring. I am so proud to present to the community our state-of-the-art center that boasts a STEAM lab, brand new playground, and so much more!
At Childtime, we strive to be your child's second home. You'll find experienced, dedicated teachers who are passionate about education. We provide a welcoming environment where children are free to learn at their own pace. Most of all, you'll find that we will care for, love, and respect your child in a way that will foster individuality.
We have a state-of-the-art security system at our front door that requires a unique code to enter. All of our parents have access to real-time updates of their child's day with our brightwheel app. The app features a communication portal so that while you are working, you can seamlessly communicate with your child's teacher. We are also excited to roll out WatchMeGrow, a parent streaming service that allows you to peek into your child's day.
We know that safety is your number one priority -- we provide a safe, loving environment for everyone. We take everyone's temperature upon arrival to ensure no one enters our building with illness symptoms, we are wearing masks throughout the day, we are having families remain in common areas and out of classrooms, and we are limiting our group sizes. We are also offering virtual tours to protect our children and families.
Schedule a virtual tour of Childtime in Silver Spring, MD today! We can’t wait for you to see our amazing school firsthand. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
