Welcome to Childtime Learning Center in Ellicott City, MD! My name is Liz and I am the center director here! I have been working in child care since 2004 and I am so happy to be a part of this Childtime family.
I am confident in saying that we offer the best infant daycare and private preschool in Howard County. We also service several area elementary schools and have a fun-filled summer camp program for students of all ages. We are NECPA-accredited and meet a high standard of excellence that you can see the moment you enter our building!
We now offer updated technology in our preschool, pre-k, and school-age classrooms! Preschool and pre-k children have iPads with educational apps and games, as well as soft shapes and letters that interact with the touchscreens. Plus, our preschool class will have an Inspire Plus interactive table and our pre-k class will feature a STEAM Studio with hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts, and Math. For our school-age classroom, we have iPads, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!
Our teachers have over 200 years of combined experience. We conduct ongoing professional training for our staff so that we are always abreast of new developments in the early childhood field. Many of our teachers have degrees or are pursuing them!
We are proud of our school and excited to invite you to become a part of our family. Schedule a tour to visit our amazing Childtime of Ellicott City, MD!

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.
