Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Byron Center, MI. My name is Melisa Ricketson-Bowman and I am the school director. I have over 23 years of experience in the early childhood field. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and my minor is in early childhood education. I have been with Learning Care Group for 7 years.
Our management team consists of myself, Desirae Snyder, our School Education Manager, and Virginia Green as our Team Lead. Desirae 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.
Please calls us today or email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
