Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our Childtime educational daycare in Mechanicsville, VA. We are nestled in a very quiet suburban area and have been serving families for more than 20 years. In addition to providing superior local Infant care, our Preschool and early education programs can offer the best learning experience for your child.

My name is Betsy and I am the director of this wonderful school. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and more than 30 years of experience working with children of all ages.

I strive to create a nurturing and safe environment that encourages confidence. My outstanding teachers have between five and 20 years of child care experience. Our staff participates in ongoing educational training, CPR and First Aid certifications, as well as MAT certification.

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.
