Welcome to Our School

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!

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
We love Childtime. Our little girl absolutely adores her teachers. We appreciate how the curriculum has really advanced her learning every step of the way.
We love it! Our daughter loves her teachers and is in sprout yoga.
I am very impressed with this center, Lisa has been the best and very welcoming. All staff within the building are always so nice and very helpful. The center and all rooms are exceptionally clean/ organized at all times.
Our daughter loves her school, and we love the warm and welcoming staff. We recommend ChildTime of Des Moines!
All my interactions so far have shown me how individually they know and care about my child! The director and assistant director never fail to greet me and always have an open door to questions!
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.
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.
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.
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.
