Welcome to Childtime a nationally accredited school in Bel Air, MD! My name is Mari Ficocello-Tabor and I am the Center Director. I have a degree in early childhood education and have spent the last 17 years as a teacher 8 years as a Director.
Drawing from my experience and education, I can truly say we offer the best infant-toddler care and private preschool in Harford County. We also service most of the local elementary schools. Our curriculum provides hands-on activities with individualized lesson plans that inspire creativity and a love of learning.
Our teachers are the reason we are a nationally-accredited center and have been a part of this community for more than 20 years. There is a lot of longevity within our staff; some of our teachers have been here over 15 years. Combined, our team has over 175 years of experience! Ongoing staff training is conducted and our teachers are CPR and first aid certified.
Safety is our top priority. The main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters.
We are excited for the opportunity to invite you to become part of our family. Schedule a tour or stop in anytime to visit our amazing Childtime of Bel Air!
