Welcome to our Childtime in Jacksonville FL. My name is Jordan Lavender and I am the Director here at our Mandarin location. I have a bachelor's degree, Director's Credential and more than 10 years of experience in early childhood education.
Our Infant, Toddler, Twos, Early Preschool, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We currently serve families in the Mandarin and Bartram Park areas. Our Before-and After-School care for school-Agers currently serves Mandarin Oaks Elementary and Crown Point Elementary.
Childtime's lead teachers hold a Child Development Associate credential or higher degree. All staff maintains CPR and first aid certificates and they attend monthly training sessions to stay up-to-date on the best practices for our children. Combined, the staff has more than 140 years of experience in early childhood education.
We invite you to schedule a tour today and see why Childtime Mandarin in Jacksonville FL is considered a preferred early childhood learning center.
