Welcome to Childtime Learning Centers in Tamarac! My name is Zoraida Zarate, and I am the Center Director. I have been in the early childhood education and child care industry for more than 20 years and truly love what I do.
At Childtime, we offer Infant, Toddler, Twos, Preschool and VPK Programs, as well as before-and After- School care.
Every day is a new journey, and our dedicated staff and management team loves making a difference in the lives of our youngest generation. To stay current in the field of early childhood education, all staff members participate in training throughout the year. We have our own school curriculum, which will take your child through a customized learning path. Our School is NECPA accredited and it is a proud participant in Florida's Gold Seal Quality Care program.
In this challenging and uncertain time, we recognize the strain the current climate creates for families. We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state, local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe and healthy school environment.
Being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we're excited to provide ways for you to stay connected. To keep you updated with your child activities we offer our brightwheel App. And soon, you will have access to WatchMeGrow, a live feature that will let you watch your kids in real time video.
We have The Prep Lab program for our Before and After Care School Age Children, which offers a safety, a flexible scheduling, a new full-day option, and distance learning support, based on our local school district’s plans for school age students
