Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Welcome to Our School

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.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Everyone is welcoming and understanding
Overall, absolutely wonderful. We love everything about it.
The school is great! The director really cares, she takes the time to explain things and loves all the students. The teachers are warm and welcoming. My kids love it and i can tell they are learning
My kids love it here! I have built strong relationships with the teachers and trust them with my kids.
From our initial meeting with director Joanie Ruiz we have felt at ease with Childtime at Harbourside. The teachers in both in the infant room and 2’s room have been welcoming, communicative and professional and we appreciate the effort everyone makes in creating an educational, fun environment.
Amazing. We love our school. They have truly gone above and beyond. I love that every single teacher knows my child’s name.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Childtime - Harbourside. The staff creates a family environment and truly get to know your child as an individual. My son and daughter both attend and from the infant room to Pre-K everyone is amazing and my children love going to school. Leaving your kids in the hands of other people while you're at work is scary, but I have not one hesitation or concern
when I leave my kids at Childtime every morning.

We love this school and all of the teachers !
My six month old daughter has been at this Childtime for almost three months, and I love it! The teachers are so sweet and they genuinely love my daughter. The director is also very involved and responsive. I get updates throughout the day about my daughters meals and naps, and I even get a picture or video of her most days. I have had a great experience, and I tell everyone this daycare has made
returning to work after maternity leave much easier.

I randomly visited different day care facilities when moving to the area, and Childtime was only the 2nd school I visited. I showed up without a scheduled visit, and the director, Joanie, immediately welcomed me and gave me a tour. i was impressed with how much she cared, along with knowing that they had 3 teachers that had been there for over 5 years. Every teacher my son has had has been nothing
but loving and welcoming. They really care about each kid, and it shows. I highly recommend at least touring this location and meeting each teacher your child may encounter. They truly are remarkable people and I know I am leaving my kid in good hands each day. Thanks for everything guys.
