Your Toddler Thrives with
Cuddles and Compassion
As your toddler grows seemingly at the speed of the light, they can count on teachers to guide their learning with respect, empathy, and patience at all times. We provide the necessary encouragement to help them blossom into well-rounded, curious little learners.
A Child-Centric Environment
Makes Kids Feel At Home
We have created a colorful, artistic space that allows your toddler to express themselves and feel accepted at all times. Each child has their name painted on a wall. We teach the value of diversity in the classroom early on.
and Pre-Reading Skills
Teachers will gradually prepare your kiddo for their entry to school by equipping them with valuable pre-literacy skills. They’ll learn new words, understand how to form sentences, and will practice holding and opening books.
Child-Led Learning Plus
Regular Daily Routines
At such a young age, toddlers benefit significantly from the consistency of positive habits and routines. Our daily schedule allows them to anticipate meal time and nap time in between all of the learning and play.
Teachers develop the curriculum weekly based on the interests of Toddlers
the curriculum weekly
based on the
interests of Toddlers
Our unique curriculum is built weekly based on the Reggio philosophy, which values children’s interests and personal preferences; this allows teachers to create engaging lessons depending on which stage each classroom’s development is at while addressing any weaknesses.
Built With Positive Guidance
Through gentle redirection, your little one will learn how to share, take turns, raise their hand to ask questions, and care for others. Understanding how to express emotion helps foster a sense of independence and self-awareness.
Keeps Parents Up To Date
You’ll be fully informed about what your toddler has been up to all day, thanks to daily progress reports and photos via the Brightwheel app. Our staff is always available to provide feedback and answer any of your questions.

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.
