Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

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.

I began working in childcare in 2003, and have been in childcare management since 2011. I joined the Childtime team in January of 2019 and am excited to say that we have a wonderful team of dedicated teachers. My life is so much better when children are around and I love being able to see their smiles throughout the day. My main focuses are security, safety, and education but our team here provides so much more than that on a daily basis! Come on in for a tour sometime!

I have been working in early childhood and secondary education with children ages six weeks through 18 years since 2010. I have been with Childtime since June 2018 and have loved working with such a dedicated and loving team of teachers. I love working with children of any age because no matter how much you think you're teaching them they always find a way to teach you and remind you of the simple joys in life.
