Welcome to our Childtime in Alexandria, VA! My name is Janet and I am the center director. I have been with Childtime for more than 22 years and have been the director here at the Alexandria center for more than 15 years.
As a director, this has been one of the most challenging times. However, our staff has not missed a beat and we quickly learned to implement new practices to our already rigorous cleaning and hygiene practices. We closely follow CDC, and our local and state health officials guidance. It is part of our daily practice to screen staff and children upon arrival for temperature and symptoms; provide protective face coverings for all staff; and eliminate family-style dinning.
All of these practices have allowed us to continue our high quality care for families. We understand how important it is for parents to know their child is in a safe and secure environment. At Childtime, our infant child care, preschool and other early education enhancement programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy and approach to early child care and education. We also feature Prep Lab which bridges the gap for any learning lost during the pandemic to better prepare children for next school year.
Many of our teachers have been with us for at least 10 years. Several have a bachelor's degree or are working toward their Child Development Associate. They receive year round training through Childtime and participate in ongoing training through local colleges, the state of Virginia and Fairfax County. All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Most importantly, all of our staff members share a passion for children and their continued growth!
We are walking distance from the yellow line Huntington Metro station and conventionally located just off the 495 Beltway and Route 1. Come visit us and see what amazing opportunities our Childtime educational daycare in Alexandria, VA has to offer your family! We look forward to meeting you soon. Stay tune as we will soon offer the WatchMeGrow live stream video for parents to stay connected!

Education: Early Childhood Education
I have always enjoyed working with children and families to support the continuous growth and development of all children. As the director, I have the wonderful opportunity of partnering with families and teachers to promote the joy and empowerment of lifelong learning. to our children.

Early childhood education has been my passion for many years. I began as a volunteer in my son's preschool classroom and loved the experience. I soon made it my career path. I have taught international in China and Vietnam plus the United States.
