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.
In this challenging and uncertain time, we remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community and to provide families with peace of mind. That starts with providing a safe, secure, and healthy environment for your child when they're away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain a safe, healthy school environment.
We know that being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we want to make sure you feel connected throughout the day, every day, sharing in all your child's experiences.
We offer the very latest in technology, which includes a mobile app brightwheel that sends parents real-time updates of their child's daily activities, as well as photos of your child that will brighten your day.
We're also thrilled to offer a new, free service to our families. Live streaming through WatchMeGrow technology, you'll be able to view your child's activities in the classroom on any smart device or computer.
Thank you and I invite you to call and set up a tour!
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

Education: Continuing education course work in Early Childhood Education
I have been working in the education field for over 30 years. I have been a two year old teacher, a preschool teacher, and a Kindergarten Teacher. I enjoy teaching children and have found that they teach me just as much as I teach them. I love reading, baking and spending time with my family and grandchildren.
