Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Ellicott City, MD! My name is Bethanie and I am the center director! I have a degree in early childhood development and elementary education. I have worked in the field for over 10 years.
Whether it's providing loving care for infants or participating in activities in our preschool programs, I enjoy what I get to do each day and that is to watch so many little ones learn and grow. We have added additional health and safety protocol, like temperature checks at drop off and wellness checks throughout the day, as well as our brightwheel and WatchMeGrow applications to give you a real-time look into your child's day.
Children are the leaders of tomorrow and we understand the importance of their developmental milestones during the early years. Our staff members participate in training throughout the year to ensure we are providing the best care and education for our students. We're also implementing a Prep Lab program to bridge the gap from any missed educational time during the pandemic to ensure your child is on track for their next education year.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships, as well.
Please come tour our Childtime Learning Center in Ellicott City, MD - we would love for you to be a part of our family.

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

I have been in the early childhood field for over 14 years. I enjoy going on new adventures with my husband and son. Seeing the excitement and accomplishment from the teachers and children when a new skill or milestone has been achieved is the highlight of my day. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to teach tomorrow's leaders!
