Welcome to Childtime in Midlothian, VA located right off Hull Street behind Glory Days Restaurant! My name is Joanie, the center director. I have a degree in social and behavioral science from Santa Rosa Junior College and am currently working on my bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Liberty University. Drawing from my background and over 14 years of experience, I can confidently say we offer the best Infant Care and Preschool in Midlothian!
We are focused on health and safety in our school, we are taking temperatures upon arrival, all adults in the building are wearing face masks to ensure the are keeping your children safe. We are taking many steps like using hospital grade cleaners each night to ensure the cleanliness of our school.
We know the fall will look very different for your school age children this year so we are offering The Prep Lab for them to work on their virtual learning and to bridge the gap between school years.
Our teachers have longevity with Childtime some have been here as long as 13 years and majority have been with us for more than five, so you can look forward to consistency in your child's classroom. Every staff member is First Aid and CPR certified and several are MAT certified. We have monthly and ongoing training with all staff members.
We are excited to offer new technology in our school-age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more! We'll also have improved technology for our families like brightwheel that provides updates in real-time and WatchMeGrow offering live-streaming camera access, both available on your smart device.
We host events and activities for our families including Parents' Night Out, fall festivals and enrichment programs. Plus, our front door has a security key pad with a code unique to each parent!
I invite you to schedule a tour of our wonderful Childtime educational daycare in Midlothian, VA today.
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
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
Our School-Age classroom is a perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, where children become thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Education: Associate's Degree in Social and Behavioral Science
My true desire is to nurture and educate children. My passion for early childhood education evolved from working as an infant teacher. As a director, I take pride in having a school that feels like family.
Education: Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts
I have always wanted to teach children. Here at Childtime, I oversee the curriculum and ensure our students are learning and having a blast as we introduce them to new concepts. I love football and crafting and I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband.
I have been a part of the Harbourside Family for eight years! I love teaching Pre-K and ensuring that our students are ready for Kindergarten and beyond. I am also our yoga teacher and enjoy teaching our students fun poses and relaxing breathing techniques.
