Childtime in Tustin is fantastic establishment! My children love their teachers and all of their friends. They have grown so much in their time here.

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!
