Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to Kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime, our wonderful educational daycare in Hanover, MD! My name is Kim and I am the school director. I have a bachelor's degree in early childhood education and special education along with more than 15 years of early childhood experience.

Drawing from my background, I can truly say we offer the best Infant Care and Private Preschool in Anne Arundel County. If you're looking for School-Age Care, we provide service to some of our local elementary schools.

We have new technology in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! Children have iPads with educational apps, plus, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class features a STEAM Studio with learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts, and Math. For our School-Age classroom, we have iPads, tripods for movie making, robots for coding and more! We also have an indoor gym area called our Grow Fit room for gross motor times when weather does not permit outside time.

Our teachers have nearly 200 years of combined experience. Ongoing staff training is conducted, and our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified. Safety is also a priority of ours. The main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Call us today to see why our Childtime in Ellicott City, MD, is the place for your family!
