Welcome to Childtime daycare and preschool in Renton, WA! My name is Bj and I am the school director. I have had 14 years experience in early childhood education, facilitating opportunities for learning, using our GrowFit program to help our students develop lifelong healthy habits, and providing a safe and nurturing environment.
We offer loving childcare for infants of six weeks through seven years. Education has always been a focus of mine from my early days doing research in learning and memory to my current passion , providing a warm, caring, and safe environment for our early learners.
Our first priority has always been to provide a safe environment for our little friends. We have recently enhanced our already strict and thorough sanitization procedures and increased their frequency throughout the day. We now require a temperature and symptom check for children, teachers, parents, and visitors as they enter our school. Face coverings are required to enter our facility and we only allow one person in our entryway at a time.
The relationship between our school and families is very important to us. We are constantly looking for more opportunities to enable interaction between teachers and parents. We are also very happy to provide two amazing apps that give you a window into your child's day. The first is brightWheel which allows you to receive photos. videos, and notes throughout the day. We are also adding the new WatchMeGrow program which takes advantage of our live camera security system. WatchMeGrow allows for secure live classroom streaming. Very exciting!
Our curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood learning. That means you can expect a homelike environment, curriculum based on student interests and developmental progress, and experience based learning.
We would love to show you our school. Please set up a tour soon!
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.
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:
Dance, Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math

Prior to my current work in Early Childcare, I did research at UCSD in learning and memory. For the last 14 years I have applied what I learned as a researcher, broadened my knowledge through Early Childhood coursework, and have learned so much more from my in-classroom experiences!
