Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime Learning Center on Alverser Drive in Midlothian, VA! My name is Leigh Mertins and I am the director. I have been working with children for over 25 years with the last 15 plus, in daycare management. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and am working to finish my bachelor's degree.

We offer care for children six weeks to 12 years old through our Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and School-Age programs. We also have a Flex Care Program for those days when you need extra help. Our devoted and skilled teachers offer quality child care along with our age-appropriate curricula. Our staff has 205 years of combined experience in child care!

Safety is a top priority at our school! Visitors' IDs are always checked upon entry and our doors are equipped with a security system that only allows those authorized to enter the building. With the current health crisis, visitors and guests are limited to the front lobby and temperatures are taken at arrival. We have continued our rigorous cleaning and hand washing routines to maintain a healthy environment for our families and staff!

Everyone on staff is trained in CPR and First Aid to ensure the safety of our children throughout the day.

Due to COVID we are now offering The Prep Lab, this will provide support to students and families that will be facing education changes and challenges. We will offer a flexible schedule and a full day option for school-agers.

WatchMeGrow is coming soon offering live-streaming video of your child's day, watch for more information to come.

We invite you to call us or stop by to schedule a tour of our wonderful Childtime Learning Center in Midlothian, VA.

Here's what people have to say

4.6 out of 5 stars
LOVE this school - love the people and the way they love my child.
The teachers and director are always welcoming! They help my son make a smooth transition on mornings that he may be a little more clingy. My son is able to come home and tell me things he's learned that day. The homework exercises are great to help him adapt to Kindergarten next year. His social skills have also improved tremendously!
They love our kids like their own!
My daughter has been going to Childtime since she was 1.5 years old. They have always taken great care of her and everyone is very friendly and professional. She has learned so much since she started and I know she will be more than ready for Kindergarten when she moves up. She loves playing with other students and I'm happy that she gets outdoor time as well. I like the variety of activities and projects
she gets to work on.

The center is very welcoming. Within a week, everyone knew my child’s name. He loves the center and his vocabulary has improved greatly, which is a big deal since he has a speech delay.
I love this school. I always feel like my child is cared for - probably better than I could do myself. He's learned so much during his time at ChildTime and I know that whatever silly request or question I have, they will assist me and offer better solutions or ideas. It's been like having 12 moms help me raise my child during his most formative years. It really does take a village and I'm lucky that
I have that.

Very positive staff, wonderful and incredibly dedicated, hard working director and assistant director, good people, the Toddler classroom teacher (Ms. Megan) was super organized, enthusiastic about his learning and was a fantastic communicator.
This is the only care center I have ever seen that actually feels like family. The director, Leigh, is FANTASTIC and so incredibly caring. Each of her staff members takes their kind lead from her wonderful example; they are all delightful. These are truly the people you want looking after your children.
We have been so lucky to find this school. Our child has grown tremendously. He has made great long lasting friendships.
I absolutely LOVE the teachers and director of Childtime in Midlothian (Alverser). They are so nurturing to my infant and truly feel like family. She's gaining so many skills while being in the infant classroom - from play time to learning English and Spanish. She's even learning sign language, thanks to the amazing teachers that she has. Early morning drop-offs are easy and comforting thanks to Ms.
Yolanda and afternoon pick-ups are so fun with Ms. Elizabeth and Ms. Kim. I look forward to the pictures and updates posted throughout the day in the app and it makes me feel like I'm able to be a part of my little girl's day even though I'm at work. 5 stars for this daycare - I am so thankful we found them.
