Welcome to Childtime in Troy, MI! My name is Tamika Spence-Beeks and I am the director. I have an associate's degree in elementary education and a bachelor's degree in early childhood education.
All of our lead teachers are highly qualified and participate in training throughout the year. We provide a safe environment for children, families and staff and have a coded entryway that ensures we are able to monitor who is entering our building. We also offer parents a mobile app that provides real-time updates of their child's day!
Our Preschool, Pre-K, and School-Age classrooms are overflowing with 21st century age-appropriate technology. The Pre-K classroom features a learning center focused on STEAM learning with innovative materials in the areas of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math! For School-Agers, we have iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding and more!
To ensure the safety of our families staff and children, we are screening staff and children upon arrival for their temperature and symptoms. We are providing protective face coverings for all staff members to wear when working with children. Having parents remain in common areas only and conducting regular wellness checks throughout the day. We are eliminating family-style dining, only serving pre-plated (or teacher-plated) meals. We are also enhancing our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices (more frequent, longer hand washing) as well as cleaning and sanitizing surfaces and items in classrooms. We are also helping children understand events, such as the Coronavirus. As teachers, we can support children as they learn how to work through a traumatic experience. Providing children with stability and reassurance can help them feel safe and secure as they work through their feelings.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
