Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime in Tustin, CA! My name is Kristina and I am the director. I have my bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in education from Occidental College. While at Oxy, I also earned my Master of Arts degree in teaching as well as my California State Teaching Credential. In addition to that, I have a master's degree in educational administration and an Administrative Credential from Concordia University. I have spent over 12 years in early childhood education.

Our location offers infant and toddler care, preschool, pre-kindergarten and more. We also offer various ancillary programs such as dance, sports and music.

Our school is filled with enthusiastic and qualified teachers who are CPR and First Aid certified, as well as recipients of a minimum of 12 ECE units. Our teachers have over 148 years of combined early education experience!

We offer parents a mobile app that provides them with real-time updates of their child's day! In addition, we now have interior and exterior cameras to view our classrooms, playgrounds, lobby and entrances to ensure our school is safe and secure.

We invite you to come in for a tour of our Childtime educational daycare in Tustin, CA. We can't wait to meet you!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Everything has been great very accommodating and great care of my son.
It was not easy having to drop my son off at daycare starting at 8 weeks old, but the director and staff at ChildTime of Santa Ana have helped make my transition back to work the best it could possibly be. The ability to receive photos and updates on BrightWheel and see video footage throughout the day also helps tremendously! I am forever grateful for this team and the love and care they have shown
to my son!

Our daughter has been enrolled at Childtime Tustin for nearly one year, and we have been really happy with our experience here. My husband and I routinely talk about how wonderful it is that Childtime is part of our lives, giving our daughter thorough care and varied, stimulating experiences, like creative arts and crafts in class, a morning of bowling instruction, and spontaneous dance parties with
her teachers. Her teachers have all been loving and joyful towards her. I also enjoy the BrightWheel App with the updated pictures of her throughout the day as well as her activities. Also, the live-feed camera provides me a peek into her day, always reassuring me that she is having a great time with her toddler friends and teachers. Childtime Tustin feels like another member of our family with the great care they provide to our daughter and the peace of mind they give to us. Thank you so much for all that you do!

I’ve only had positive experiences so far.
As a mother who were anxious to bring her child to daycare, I really appreciate the consistent update in BrightWheel. It’s heaven-sent to ease my worries not seeing her for whole day. Also I appreciate teacher’s attention and patience with kids. They also try their best to communicate with parent. Keep up the good work!
I love the atmosphere at Childtime Tustin. The teachers are genuinely friendly and loving. The children are taught the skills that they will need for kinder and they help develop the whole child. They are the perfect example of what I want in a preschool (and I am a teacher). I am very happy with everything at Childtime Tustin.
We appreciate the child/teacher ratio and the use of the apps. The staff is very friendly and kind.
