Our Groups

Ages: 0 - 18 months

Our Infant Room was lovingly remodeled by the previous owners, and the care shows.  It's a cozy room with easy to clean flooring and a great space for crawlers and early walkers alike.  We have cribs and cots for napping, and provide sheets for your convenience.  Our infant staff are warm, nurturing and loving.  They understand that they are the surrogate adult and are here to provide cuddles, comfort and age appropriate stimulation.  Daily updates are uploaded to an app for parents to stay in the loop on their little one's routines.  Full time care is provided for our working parents.  We know it's not easy to leave your baby every day, but we've got your back while you are working.

Ages: 18 months - 3 years

The Toddler/Early Preschool room is a lovely open space with plenty of activities to stimulate little brains and their development.  Small class sizes and low ratios allow the teachers to really connect with the children and to learn their patterns.  This in turn helps us to meet their needs.  Our toddlers are engaging in a lot of parallel play, and have varying speech levels, so we are all about letting them practice their words, and helping those who need more words as well.

Meals are included, prepared daily by our staff.  We are currently only enrolling for five days a week, as most of our families are working and this provides a consistent schedule for the children.

Our Kid Time Junior 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 Multi Site Coordinator are longtime teachers, and they are intent on working with staff and  the children daily, keeping them in touch with the day today activities and schedules which helps keep the quality level high.  Hands on also applies to administration at Kid Time!

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.
