Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime in Columbia, MD! My name is Nytia and I am the Center Director. I hold my degree in business administration. I have education and training in early childhood, along with more than 19 years of experience working with children.

Whether it's providing loving care for Infants or participating in our Preschool programs, I love what I do each day and that is watching the children grow and learn. Our curriculum provides exciting hands-on activities with individualized lesson plans that inspire creativity and a love of learning. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk.

The staff here is second to none. They receive monthly training and participate in various other training opportunities offered in the community. We exceed the yearly training requirements imposed by the state of Maryland, and we are also trained in First Aid and CPR, as well as Medication Administration and Emergency Preparedness. Safety is also a priority of ours. The main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters.

Our school is located off of Snowden River Parkway in Snowden Center, tucked away in a quiet little corner of Columbia between Oakland Mills Rd. and Oak Hall Ln., next to the My Gym Children's Fitness Center.

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 invite you to schedule your tour today of our Childtime Center so that your family can experience the wonderful care and learning we provide!
