Child-Centered Philosophy
Each child is different and learns at their own pace.
We aim to meet the individual needs of all children.​​​​

Play-Based Environment

We believe in letting children do what they do best;
to play and interact with the world around them, learning as they explore.

Community-Focused Program
It is very important to us that we walk along-side parents​
as partners in caring for their children. We are truly a community​
and find that experience very valuable for all involved.​

Kindergarten Readiness

We ensure the children are well prepared in all aspects,
from gross/small motor skills, academic learning, social and emotional
development, to group play and activity, and working within a group.


My son went to Kid Time 13 years ago and to this day we are still connected with the staff and quite nostalgic for the three years he spent there. It is truly a  remarkable place where your child will be part of a very strong community, where the emphasis on acceptance and learning through play creates a very safe, secure and fun environment. I really can't say enough about how my now 16 year old benefitted from this experience!

If you live anywhere near Walnut Creek, you are crazy to choose any other preschool for your child.  You can leave your precious ones here with no hesitations, knowing that the teachers and every staff member truly, truly cares.  They have a comprehensive program that focuses both on allowing your child's emerging personality to blossom, as well as preparing them for, well... life.  They also help you as parents keep those goals in front of you too ;o).I could go on and on, but basically KT is heads and shoulders above the rest.  My daughter just "graduated" after 3 years here, and she and her fellow KT-ers who are now in Kindergarden are so READY and well-equipped for embarking on their new school adventures, and I know that so much of that is attributable to her time at KT.   My son is in his second year as well. If you are searching for a preschool program, go and visit.  You'll feel the positivity and nurturing environment right away.  It's not a mirage.

We fell in love with Kidtime the first time we visited there.  I tell every parent that the only question you need to ask is how is the turnover of staff.  With Kidtime, there is none.  Mr. Steve (the owner) has been there 20+ years and has been invited to weddings of kids that he at one time taught.  We had 2 kids there and were members of this exclusive fraternity for over 4 years and both of our kids were taught by the same great teachers.  Leah, Ms. Jessica, Ms Svetlana, Ms. Anita, and all the others.  One final point to mention, when we visited the first time, Leah (the Director) told us that be prepared to have the kids covered in paint or grime or any other kid-friendly concoction and they'll probably need baths every night because we're here to let the kids be kids.  While we didn't have to give baths every night, it was the attitude and declaration that their mission was to let the kids play and have fun was all we needed.

We feel very lucky to have found Kid Time when we relocated to Walnut Creek from the UK.

We were first attracted to the preschool by their wonderful yard, happy and engaged looking children, and cheerful staff. And we have not been disappointed!

Our eldest son has been there since Aug 2010 (full time) and has settled in beautifully. He has come on leaps and bounds in confidence! He very much enjoys Miss Jessica's pre-school learning activities (Ruff Dogs), loves the art projects, cooking fun with Miss Sarah and playing in the yard outside.

Our twins started at Kid Time in October 2011 on part-time basis as Pizza Pups. Although I was a little worried how our slightly less adventurous /more clingy boy-twin would do, it was completely unnecessary. He and his sister absolutely love Kid Time, they adore their teacher Miss Lana and on most days it's difficult to tear them away to go home.
The staff at Kid Time are wonderful - they are warm, cheerful, have positive attitudes, and really care about the kids well-being and development. We like the 'learning-through-play' philosophy, the tasty on-site-cooked meals, and the helpful and 'can-do' problem-solving approach of the director, Leah. We would highly recommend Kid Time!
