Welcome to Childtime Learning Center 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.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
