Welcome to Childtime Learning Center on Newbys Bridge Road in Chesterfield! 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. Everyone on staff is trained in CPR and First Aid to ensure the safety of our children throughout the day.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
We look forward to meeting your family here at Childtime in Chesterfield! Schedule your tour today!
