Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Des Moines, Iowa! My name is Lisa, and I am the director. I have over 20 years of experience in the early childhood field.
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.
Along with our fantastic curriculum, we also offer the very latest in technology, which includes a mobile app that sends parents real-time updates of their child's daily activities, as well as photos to bring a smile to their day.
Since opening our school almost 20 years ago, we have built a great reputation in our community and the communities of Ankeny, Urbandale, Clive, Pleasant Hill, and Norwalk. Come visit today and see how we can offer your child a brilliant beginning at Childtime!
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.
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math

I have been at Childtime for over nine years, first as a Preschool/Pre-K teacher and now as assistant director. I have a passion for the education of young children and supporting teachers with our outstanding curriculum. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
