The path to Kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Des Moines, IA. My name is Lisa, and I am the school director. I have over 25 years of experience in early childhood education.

Whether it's through our loving Infant Care or superior Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs, we will ensure your child loves what they are learning through our assessment-based curriculum that is taught by our experienced teachers. We are lucky to have a team with a diverse background of education and experience. On top of the experience, we offer monthly training and development opportunities to ensure our teaching staff is constantly learning.

Our school participates in the Quality Rating system through the state of Iowa. We at this time currently have received a Four-Star Rating.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Call us today to schedule a tour! We cannot wait to meet you and your family!

We've had a wonderful experience at Childtime. The teachers are very caring and go above and beyond. My daughter is thoroughly enjoying being in Ms. Robin's classroom.
Verified Shopper
Love our room and teachers! Our child is welcomed and the atmosphere is wonderful! I wish the toys were a bit cleaner. Overall experience, we are happy and feel comfortable with our child attending.
Verified Shopper
We have had a very positive experience. The transition from in-home daycare to the center was a definite change for our daughter. The teachers and staff there made Her feel welcome and she now loves it. She has learned so much in her short time.
Verified Shopper
Our little one seems to have a good time at school, and her teachers already know her little quirks and where she is developmentally. It makes me feel better about her well-being to know that she's with people who care about her. Even though they have a room full of infants--sometimes screaming infants--to care for, they always have something nice to say about each individual child that day. I'm sure
those little ones tax their patience sometimes, but our daughters teachers do a great job anyway.
