Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our Childtime educational daycare in Laguna Niguel, CA! My name is Nikki and I am the director of this NECPA-accredited school serving Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo, and many more local communities. I have been in the child care field for more than 15 years as a teacher and manager.

We offer infant and toddler care, preschool and pre-kindergarten programs for children six weeks to six years old. All of our teachers possess backgrounds in early childhood education. Combined, we have over 90 years of experience together. Staff members are each certified in First Aid/CPR and participate in ongoing training.

With new Watch Me Grow technology, parents will be able to view their child's classroom activities on any smart device or computer. We also have a mobile app that provides parents with real-time updates and photos of their child throughout the day!

Safety and security are top priorities and each family is given their own personal access code to enter the building. We also require that every visitor or volunteer show their I.D. upon arrival.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My child really likes childtime and feels comfortable there. We like the teachers and all the fun the kids have at school.
without the help of our sons teacher I don’t think our son would ever have been potty trained. Can’t thank her enough.
Love the teachers and staff!
Very caring teachers. Our daughter loves going to school every day. They’ve created a positive atmosphere where she can excel and develop new friendships.
We love Childtime. The staff and property are amazing and charming and we feel as though our child has advanced mentally and socially while attending Childtime.
We truly feel like the entire staff (directors & teachers) have provided an incredible environment for our children; nurturing, educating, warm, safe, & loving. We partly love our childtime school in Laguna Niguel, CA due to its enormous outdoor areas with natural grass, trees, sand and dirt for the kids to play in! We love that it's an accredited institution and have seen during the audit how this
helps keep the bar high for our children. Nikki, Jessica, Piyali, Marieva, Rossana, and Ursula have all been a blessing! My children have both thrived and I can see how my daughter (after 2 years) has excelled in learning across all domains. I think there is a lot of room for improvement with the meal program, which costs 1 point--so overall the school is a 9 out of 10, which is still an A!!!

It's a very good school with friendly professional staff that provide a wonderful atmosphere for children
I really enjoy the overall experience at this school. Staff is very friendly and attentive, kids seem to really enjoy each day at school, and I feel they are learning quite a bit for a preschool/pre-k class. I asked my 5-year old daughter what she likes best about the school and she said “the teachers. They help me and take care of me.”
We love the school. We are very happy there. The teachers always make us feel welcome. The director is very responsive.
Director Nikki is fantastic. She takes a sincere interest in our child.
