Getting Your Little One
The Reggio Emilia philosophy guides our daily programming and places child-led play at the center of learning. Teachers build weekly curriculum that focus on students’ interests while equipping them with the necessary academic and social skills to succeed at school!
A Caring, Inclusive Space
Designed Just For Kids
Our beautiful classrooms make young students feel comfortable and right at home. Special attention is given to design a creative and engaging space that will encourage the children to explore and create.
Learning How To Read and
Write While Improving Vocabulary
Learning How To Read
A strong emphasis on building your child’s literacy skills means frequent storytime, practicing letters and sounds, and having them write their names. Exposing your child to a rich language and taking turns independently reading simple texts.
Creating An Unshakeable
Your little learner will begin recognizing patterns, identifying numerals and quantities, and gaining an understanding of basic addition and subtraction. They’ll become comfortable with concepts such as number sense, measurement, and spatiality.
Developing A Sense of
Empathy and Self-Awareness
Developing A Sense
Alongside their academic and physical growth, socio-emotional development is also an essential part of your young learner’s journey. We will teach them how to recognize their feelings, understand how their actions impact others, be patient, take turns, share toys, and much more!
Daily Outdoor Play To
Improves Health And Wellbeing
Daily Outdoor Play
With more space to move in, little ones are more active when playing outdoors, which helps them build strong muscles and bones. They’ll play outside twice a day to improve their balance and coordination while burning off all of that extra energy!
Teachers are trained to be non-reactive and to guide children through the process of modifying their actions or behaviors if they’ve failed. By engaging in trial and error, your child will develop a sense of autonomy and self-respect for their capabilities.
Providing Ongoing Support
and Resources To Parents
Each day, you’ll receive detailed progress reports, photos, and tailored advice from teachers through the Brightwheel mobile communication app. We maintain an open-door policy for you to drop by and ask questions and offer a parenting library filled with helpful resources.
Caring, Educated And Experienced Teachers
Each of our centers has degreed teachers, teachers with a Child Development Associate, and teachers working towards both. We have several staff that have been with us over 20 years and are now teaching the children of former students.
Proud to be

Our daughter consistently comes home excited about discussion topics from class, her art projects, and of course copious amounts of free play. Her teachers have supporter her love of learning and helped foster her confidence in playing with her friends. On the rare occasion where I have reached out with a concern, the office has been prompt and respectful in their responses.
My daughter has been going to Eastside for two years and we have loved having her attend. Eastside handled the pandemic as best they could with keeping the children and staff as safe as possible. They helped her come out of her shell and be more comfortable around new teachers and friends. She has grown exponentially over the past two years and they even helped with potty training!I highly recommend this school because Lacey (the director) and the staff are so wonderful!

I cannot say enough good things about this preschool. My son loves to learn but also be nurtured. A spot opened up at Eastside and we jumped at the opportunity. Lacey (director) and his teachers were immediately welcoming. They helped him transition and he began to flourish. Eastside does a wonderful job appreciating my son for his uniqueness while helping to inspire development. His teachers have always been extremely caring, communicative, and supportive. I highly, highly recommend this center.
My son attended ChildTime Cottonwood Heights and we loved everything about this facility and program. It’s leadership was excellent and the teachers exceeded our expectations. My son went to preschool here and stayed for the Private Kindergarten, the class was small and the teacher was excellent. I cannot recommend this group more.
After looking into and visiting SO many schools, my husband and I walked into Childtime and we knew it was the school we wanted to send our daughter. She went to Childtime from when she was an infant. Childtime is the perfect mix of being loving, welcoming, and educational. My daughter is so sad to leave and absolutely adored all the teachers she has. Thank you to the amazing teachers and admins for making my daughters daycare experience so amazing. We will miss you all so much!
My 2 year old son has absolutely loved school, and his teachers. They have wonderful communication, and are quick to give updates or answer my questions. It has been a stress relief to have my little one being so well taken care of while I’m at work. I would recommend to any friends or family.

ChildTime Inc, and more specifically, Eastside Preschool has been a wonderful center for our son. The facility is safe, clean, and has a great outdoor space. Our son has made exceptional emotional and cognitive growth since starting here and the teachers are kind and caring about their well-being. They use a great app for updates and pictures of your child throughout the day. I highly recommend any ChildTime Inc center for any family and child!
My daughter has been going to Cottonwood Preschool for 3 years. She started in the daycare, then did the preschool program, and is completing their Kindergarten program now. We have been so happy with everything about our experience there. The staff has always been amazing and the director is fabulous. They care very much about learning about all the kids at the center and meet each child where they are. Thank you to the entire staff.
My kids have attended the Cottonwood Preschool for the last three years and it's one of the best decisions I ever made for them. I trust the staff of this school as much as I could trust anyone with my kids. My children have learned, grown, and thrived at the Cottonwood Preschool more than they ever could have at home. They absolutely love their teachers and their friends here. My kids view this as a safe place just as they view our home. I can't recommend this preschool enough.
Childtime has an excellent program. Our child loves being there and has enjoyed all the teachers. They have great apps to facilitate ease of payment and daily interactions with pictures. I get an end of day summary to know all the details of food, nap time, diapers, and games/activity. This has worked out perfectly! Thanks so much.
