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 State 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 bachelor's degrees to CDA's. They also participate in multiple professional development training opportunities throughout the year. We also require First Aid and CPR training yearly.

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.

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.
