Welcome to our recently remodeled Childtime in Chesterfield, VA! My name is Melissa and I am the school's Director. I have worked in the field of early childhood education for the last 14 years.
We offer Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs, and we service the following schools: Salem Elementary School, Ecoff Elementary School, O.B. Gates Elementary School, Beulah Elementary School, and Salem Middle School.
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 are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. Enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie-making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and a secure WiFi network for homework.
I invite you to schedule a tour of our Childtime educational daycare in Chesterfield, VA to see what we can offer your family! We look forward to meeting you.
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

We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.
Our School-Age classroom is a perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, where children become thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Is your child scheduled to start kindergarten? Will changes in your district impact their school year? We have a solution. Private Kindergarten is a small class with big opportunities for your child.
