Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting the Childtime educational daycare in Evanston, IL! My name is Joi Pearson and I am the director here. I am a graduate of Lewis University and have more than 12 years of experience in the field. I am confident we can provide your family with the safest childhood education environment around.

In addition to providing superior local Infant care, our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs offer the best early education in the Evanston community. Our staff is very experienced, and 75 percent of the teachers have been at this center for more than seven years. These teachers are trained professionals who truly love every child that comes into their classroom. I am excited to show you what our child care facility can bring to your family.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Schedule a tour today! We look forward to showing you all that we can offer your family.
