Welcome to our Childtime educational daycare in Chester, VA - a Virginia Quality Rated school. We offer a curriculum based on the philosophy of Reggio Emilia to families in the Chester, Chesterfield, Richmond, Tri-Cities and Ft. Lee areas. My name is Nikki and I am the center director. I have a master's degree in early childhood education, a bachelor's degree in business administration and over 18 years of experience in child care.
During the COVID-19 outbreak we have remained open to service our community. Our commitment to the health and safety of our families is evident as soon as you enter our school. We require all adults entering our facility to wear a face covering. We have a commitment to cleanliness that includes a three-step sanitation process and wiping down of high contact areas throughout the day. Families and visitors are limited to common areas in the school.
We are also offering our newest educational experience with The Prep Lab. The Prep Lab was created to stop the learning slide that occurs when children are out of school for extended periods. The grade level based workbooks with a focus on math and literacy are fun and child friendly. We also offer student internet for the students participating in virtual Summer School.
We offer live camera access to our school for our families through the WatchMeGrow app. All enrolled families have the option of signing up for the app which allows families to view both the classrooms and the playgrounds.
We service the following elementary schools with before- and after-school programs and flexible care: Salem Church Elementary, Curtis Elementary, C.C. Wells Elementary, Beulah Elementary, Harrowgate Elementary, Hopkins Elementary, Bellwood Elementary and Ecoff Elementary.
We invite you to schedule a tour to learn more about our excellent programs, curriculum and staff members here at Childtime Learning Center in Chester, VA!
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.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
