Welcome to the Childtime Learning Center in Manassas, VA. My name is Samantha Young and I am the center director! I have over 15 years of experience in the early childhood field, both as a teacher and a member of management. I have a passion for child development and truly enjoy building strong relationships with the children and their families. Partnerships between home and school are vitally important in the overall developmental success of a child. I am proud of the sense of community we have at Childtime and would love to welcome your family into our school.
Childtime Learning Center provides quality care and learning experiences for children ages six weeks to 12 years of age. With a team of incredible staff members with a combined total of 190 years of early childhood experience, I am confident that you will love the fun and safe learning environment they have created for your child.
There are warm colors and natural touches throughout the building, making it feel like a home away from home for your family. Our curriculum offers age-appropriate learning activities and experiences that target every area of your child's development. Our school is equipped with 21st century materials including Smart Boards in our Pre-K and School Age classrooms, tablet stations in Preschool through School Age, and a cameras in and around our school. We also use a fabulous program called brightwheel to send you updates, pictures, and videos of your child throughout the day!
Stop by and see us at your convenience and we would be more than happy to give you a tour and show you all that Childtime has to offer your family!
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
