Chula Vista Childtime provides a home-like setting to create a sense of warmth and security while implementing the Reggio Emilia approach to learning.

Extremely pleased. Especially since the cameras became available. I love to see how my child is interacting with her teachers and peers throughout the day.

Our child has grown and flourished at this school. We have noticed a big difference in her social and academic capabilities. We think ChildTime is a great place for children and we would recommend it to others.
Verified Shopper
The school is great! Our oldest went here and we didn't hesitate to bring our youngest also. The teachers are loving and nurturing. My wife and I always feel that our youngest is in great hands and she will graduate from the curriculum ready for her next challenge just like her older sister.

I have had 3 of my children attend Childtime as well as my grandson. I know my children are in a safe, educational and nurturing environment. I am always warmly greeted as well as my children. The staff are friendly and caring. I have been seeing the same happy faces since 2007. The building is safe with a locked lobby and cameras all throughout the school. I like the updates on Brightwheel and I can
message the teacher throughout the day. My son has learned so much and made so many friends. I have no worries he will be ready for Kindergarten next year!

I (like many moms) had a difficult time deciding to put my son in daycare/school at 2 years old. He's only been in 3 months and we've noticed such an improvement in his speech, social skills, and independence. The school makes him feel like he's important and proud when he accomplishes tasks. Yesterday his teacher made up a song about being a good listener at pick up when she asked him to grab his
jacket. At drop off he's always welcomed with a smile and excitement to see him. It makes him feel so good and it makes me feel safe knowing he's in loving hands.And honestly, it's taught me better ways to parent at home. We are definitely so happy with our decision to go with Childtime.

I am so happy to have joined the Childtime team here in Chula Vista. I am originally from Michigan and graduated from Central Michigan University. After moving to San Diego in 2008, I decided to go back and obtain my masters in Psychology while working full time in a local Head Start program as a Health/Safety/Nutrition Specialist. I have been in the field for 20 + years starting as a nanny, to teacher assistant and working my way up to Director. I look forward to meeting you and your child!!
