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