Welcome to Childtime Learning Center on Alverser Drive in Midlothian, VA! My name is Leigh Mertins and I am the director. I have been working with children for over 25 years with the last 15 plus, in daycare management. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and am working to finish my bachelor's degree.
We offer care for children six weeks to 12 years old through our Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and School-Age programs. We also have a Flex Care Program for those days when you need extra help. Our devoted and skilled teachers offer quality child care along with our age-appropriate curricula. Our staff has 205 years of combined experience in child care!
Safety is a top priority at our school! Visitors' IDs are always checked upon entry and our doors are equipped with a security system that only allows those authorized to enter the building. With the current health crisis, visitors and guests are limited to the front lobby and temperatures are taken at arrival. We have continued our rigorous cleaning and hand washing routines to maintain a healthy environment for our families and staff!
Everyone on staff is trained in CPR and First Aid to ensure the safety of our children throughout the day.
Due to COVID we are now offering The Prep Lab, this will provide support to students and families that will be facing education changes and challenges. We will offer a flexible schedule and a full day option for school-agers.
We are excited to offer free Live-Streaming video of your child's day, watch for more information to come.
We look forward to meeting your family here at Childtime in Chesterfield! Schedule your tour today!
