Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Childtime in Southfield, MI! My name is Melissa and I am the school director. I have a master's 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.

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.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

We invite you to schedule a tour of our Childtime!

My two children attend Childtime and I absolutely love everyone there, they are like family. We are so lucky to walk into a building, be greeted by such amazing staff, and to have my children run up to their teachers (past and present) and give them huge hugs. My family is so fortunate to be attending Childtime and I would recommended it everyone.

I am happy I chose this location because they have a great group of people who are kind, trustworthy, and sincere. I couldn't be happier with how prepared my son was for kindergarten this year!
Verified Shopper
This school has a wonderful staff. Ms, Joyce, Ms. Rachel, Ms. Melissa, Ms. Beverly, and Ms. Frederika are the ones who I consider to be the leads of the school. School director, Ms. Melissa, sets clear expectations and her team executes them completely. They are guiding the new team members in an exemplary manner and overall the entire staff does a wonderful job.

As our second daycare facility we are blown away by the professionalism and level of care our child receives.
