Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime in Southfield, MI! My name is Melissa and I am the school director. I have a Master of Science degree in early childhood studies and more than 10 years of experience in early childhood.

Whether it's providing care for infants or participating in activities in our preschool programs, I take pride in being a part of the life and development of every child we care for. Our staff has 150 years of combined experience in the field. Staff members are CPR/First Aid certified and participate in training each year.

We value families and offer a variety of opportunities for them to be involved. We also offer parent-teacher conferences twice a year to discuss developmental progress in a more personal setting.

Safety and security are a priority and our front door is always locked and secured with a state of the art security system. Families are assigned a code to enter the building and visitors are greeted at the front door and identification cards are always checked.

At our school, you'll also love staying connected with your child all day long through our mobile app. Get real-time updates via text and email, so you don't miss a single moment.

We invite you to schedule a tour of our Childtime educational daycare in Southfield, MI today!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
This place is fabulous. The care is wonderful and curriculum is well suited for my child and my family.
As our second daycare facility we are blown away by the professionalism and level of care our child receives.
This Daycare is the best!!!! I love the very friendly staff. I brought my daughter in at 5 months and I did not want too, I cried the first day! They made us feel very welcomed and loved. She is 3 now. They are always doing fun things with the kids ((fun fun stuff))., teaching them things, they help with potty training. Literally whatever to accommodate me and my child. I love how all the kids are
in rooms with kids that are the same age as them. They send me pics and vidoes throughout the day. Everytime she eat, sleep or potty they send a notification to the app. I love this center. It is truly the best hands down.

I have enjoyed this school and the teachers. My child has learned several things. Loves her homework.
I absolutely love everything about this Childtime. My sons teachers are incredible and love and teach our children as if they are their own. Melissa is amazing and is so caring and sweet. She accommodates anything that we need and makes us feel so comfortable. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this school!
All the staff and teachers are really nice and my child really enjoys going to school.
I love how the teachers all know my children, all care about them, speak to them and give them hugs. It’s nice knowing that if I can’t be with them, they are with people who still care about them
I am so pleased with my daughter’s development at this school. She’s been there since she was 8 weeks old. I know that I would not be able to help her live up to her full potential without Child Time. While I am aware that the curriculum is the same at all locations I have to tell you, Ms Melissa gives me the peace of mind that is necessary when you are a working parent. I do not worry about my child,
at all. That is priceless. I am truly grateful for the long tenured staff and the warm and genuine concern they have for our children. Thank you

We adore everyone at our location. They all care very deeply for our child and make us comfortable leaving him so that we can continue on our daily lives and continue to be as successful as we can. Without your services, we would be far less along in our career paths and because of you, we are thriving professionally and making the moves that we had in mind. THANK YOU
This has been an awesome experience for both us and our daughter. She's grown socially and in her education. We love it here.
