Welcome to Childtime Learning Center of Martinez, CA. Childtime offers Infant & Toddler Care, programs for Twos through Transitional Kindergarten, an accredited full-day private Kindergarten, and Before & After-School care for elementary school students.
Our school has always had a high quality of cleanness & safety but now our safety & security has increased due to COVID-19. We take everyone's temperatures upon entry & conduct daily health checks for students. Group sizes have been reduced, toys are sanitized several times a day & the entire building is cleaned & sanitized nightly. Your children's health & safety is our #1 concern.
We offer two great APPS for parents to stay connected. WatchMeGrow, where parents can access their child's classroom through live cameras & Brightwheel- a direct-messaging APP to Teachers.
Our school is nationally accredited by NECPA meaning we are recognized as leaders in Early Childhood Care. Together our team of teachers has more than 200 years of experience. I believe in our program, as my two grown children attended Childtime. During their time here they had meaningful & valuable experiences that helped them become who they are today.
All of Childtime's programs, including our Infant & Toddler program, are assessment based; focusing on observing our students to see where they are at developmentally so we can create learning experiences that meet their individual needs. Additionally, we now offer updated technology in our Preschool, Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten & School-Age classes including a STEAM Studio with hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts, & Math.
We are also offering The Prep Lab for all our school age students during this pandemic so that they don't miss out on education. We will also be assisting in distance learning with the new school year

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

I have been working in the field of Early Childhood education for over 25 years. I believe that our community's children hold the future of the world in their hands. It is our job to support them in becoming the best people they can be and to support their Families in navigating these first years of their development. I am thrilled to be a part of the Childtime Community of Learners so together we can help make the future bright.
