Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to Kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness.

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 keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.
