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 educational learning center in Kentwood, MI. We offer programs for Infants through School-Age students and our educational philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. In this philosophy, the basis of all learning is secure relationships formed between children and responsive, respectful adults. Through these relationships, children develop a capacity for trust, competence, and the independence to grow academically and socially.

Education is not a one size fits all experience. All children have different needs and abilities. They learn in their own way and at their own pace - so we have designed our School Readiness Pathway to provide educational options and choices for every age and developmental stage.

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.

We pride ourselves in our schools warm and welcoming environment. We would love to have your family visit ours. Schedule a tour today!
