About Kid Time, Inc.
Kid Time is a small, private preschool that is not only a safe place for our parents to leave their children while they go to work, but is also a Community for their families and alumni as well. Kid Time has been providing quality childcare in the Walnut Creek area since 1984.
Pizza Pups: Ages 2-3
Pizza Pups are our twos and young threes. Their day is comprised of lots of singing, hands on activities, and learning how to interact with others, both children and teachers! They are our youngest group, and much of their time here is spent figuring out how to be a part of a group, use their words, and transitioning from parallel play to playing with others.
Since for many this is their first foray away from mom and dad or in preschool, we spend a lot of time balancing between nurturing and showing firm boundaries to make them feel safe in a new environment.
Lunch Box Kids: Ages 3-4
Lunch Box Kids are our threes and young fours. At this age the children are learning social skills, and a large part of their time is spent negotiating during play, learning problem solving, working together, taking turns and sharing, when appropriate. The teachers spend a lot of time on one knee with this class, working out social issues with one another and assisting in the process of problem solving!
While there is some focus on “academic” learning, it's all done in a developmentally appropriate way, and the children are given as much choice as possible in how to spend their day.
Ruff Dogs: Ages 4-5
The Ruff Dogs are our fours and young fives, or pre-Kindergarteners. There is a lot more structure in their day than in the two younger groups; much focus is given to Kindergarten Readiness, while at the same time making sure that the children are enjoying their time at school. One of our core values is to meet the needs of each individual child, and much effort is made to meet each Ruff Dog where THEY are to be sure that they are getting as much as possible from the program.
Our children leave for Kindergarten very well prepared, and more importantly, ready and excited to learn!

Our Kid Time, Inc. Staff
Kid Time prides itself on its teachers.
Our staff consists of caring individuals who enjoy their jobs and at the same time bring a level of professionalism with them. Kid Time strives for low turnover and fosters relationships with long time teachers who help out as needed; we never call in strangers as substitutes. Both Kid Time's Owner and Director work with the children daily, keeping them in touch with the day to day activities and schedules which helps keep the quality level high.
Like learning, we believe staff training is an ongoing process. Staff meetings, training sessions, conferences and classes are offered to keep the teachers learning and growing throughout their employment at Kid Time.
