Message from the owner, Veronica Nelson

Owner Veronica Nelson joined Child Time in 1995. She loves seeing the “aha” moment when your child makes connections and learns new concepts thanks to the unique, child interest-led curriculum that defines the Reggio-Emilia approach.

We aim to give your child an early childhood education that is unmatched.

The most defining characteristic of our philosophy is the way a child is viewed.
The Reggio Emilia approach views the child as strong, resourceful, and curious, capable of constructing his/her learning. This means that the children determine the topic of study and participate in planning the curriculum.

Low Teacher-Student Ratios Give Your Your Child More Attention

Young children thrive thanks to the one-on-one attention of caring adults. Our class ratios are lower than the state’s, providing the space and bandwidth for teachers to encourage thoughtful exploration and gently guide hands-on learning.

Motivated By A Passion For Meaningful Learning

Child Time Inc. was established in 1988 to fill a massive void in the community–a need for quality education and childcare. There was also a void for the tried and true Reggio-Emilia approach, one that we at Child Time are thrilled to fill.
