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.

During this time, we have stepped up our health and safety practices with enhanced cleaning procedures, staff wearing masks, and keeping visitors and parents to common areas. Additionally, we will be launching WatchMeGrow, a technology where parents can live stream into their child's classroom from any device. Also, for school-age students, we have the Prep Lab, which will help support elementary students with distance learning in light what the local school districts decide to do with schedules this upcoming school year.

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

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Very positive experience. We have been happy with all our child's teachers and the director has been very helpful and understanding.
Everyone at this school is simply amazing. My children love their teachers, their classmates, and the directors. They talk about their friends, teachers, and what they do everyday with enthusiasm.
We love Childtime and have always felt welcomed and valued there. My child has some special needs and they are always willing to partner with us to best serve his needs. Very caring staff!
I greatly appreciate that all the staff know my son by name and are happy to see him and that he's happy to see them. Even the staff who aren't normally in his room as far as I know smile and call him by name.
My wife and I have been very happy with our son's experiences at Childtime.
Our children have been enrolled at Childtime since birth, and we have loved our experience with both our children at this school. The teachers are wonderful (great longevity), my kids have a ton of fun, and I can watch them grow and learn new skills and abilities.
Great experience and environment where my child can grow. The staff is focused on the students and introducing new ideas to the learning and growing experiences.
I really enjoy it. My daughter seems well cared for, and the teachers seem friendly, professional, and genuine.
We love everyone. Our kids know all the teachers even from other classes and the entire staff makes an effort to know our kids.
School overall has been great. It’s brings such joy seeing how happy my child is with the staff and other kids.
