Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Byron Center, MI. My name is Ruth Zaagman and I am the school director. I have over 10 years of experience in the early childhood field. I have a CDA in Infant/Toddler/Two's and numerous college credits relating to Early childhood Education as well as Program Administration from Grand Valley University. I have been with Learning Care Group for over 6 years.

Our management team consists of myself, Pam Krolik, our School Education Manager. Virginia Green and Ariane Tall as our Team Leads. Pam as our SEM, mentors our teaching team to implement and provide a safe, creative and educational environment for our students.

Our school offers classrooms for Infants, Toddlers, Twos, Early Preschool, Pre-K, State funded GSRPR program, and School-Age students. The talented teachers at our school have varying credentials, ranging from bachelors' degrees to CDAs. They also participate in multiple professional development training opportunities throughout the year. We also require First Aid and CPR training yearly.

To help keep our parents connected to the classroom, we offer live feed video streaming through WatchMeGrow. This allows access to the room your child is in. We also use brightwheel to keep open communication with our families. You will be provided with pictures, videos, updates on daily curriculum, and one on one messaging between parent and teacher.

The safety of our children is a very important to us. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented a few policies. During this time, we are requiring all staff and parents entering the building to wear face masks. We take the children's temperature every morning and we escort the children to the classroom. We are not allowing outside tours in our building. Our focus is on handwashing, cleaning and sanitizing the school and classrooms.

We've loved all of our child's teachers. We love Brightwheel for communication, especially the daily notes we receive. We also love the pictures.
I have had nothing but positive experiences with the staff and teachers at Childtime. The curriculum is creative, challenging, and enlightening. Watching my little ones flourish and retain the education provided, along with the relationships they have developed makes me so greatly appreciative of the teachers. Thanks for all that you do!
All my son’s teachers have been exceptionally friendly as well as an outstanding influence on his education.
We are very happy with the teachers & facility at Childtime. Our daughter spends a great deal of time there, and is comfortable socially & emotionally, so she is able to learn a lot. Thank you!
Enjoy all the people that work there. Very kind and always feel seen. I am greeted kindly and my child is quickly taken care of.
