“The two most important points for parents to know is that our Center operates more as a preschool than a daycare,” explains Childtime Learning Center of Camby Director Nicole Scott. “That said, to accommodate the convenience and economics of the community we serve, we offer our curriculum full time or on a flexible parttime, hourly, after-school and half-day basis.” According to Nicole, the curriculum for Childtime Learning Center targets all children from 6 weeks to 12 years old.
“Our clients span all walks of life, including many stay-at-home moms, which might surprise people,” said Nicole. “For those clients, we provide structured learning and varied social encounters for their children for a couple days a week, allowing Mom to run her errands and schedule her appointments. We also serve teachers, public servants, and physicians—anyone whose schedules operate variably or out of the ‘normal’ business hours. There’s no one definition to fit our clients.”
Nicole says every one of Childtime’s staff had a degree in early education. “We separate children into seven classrooms, based on age appropriateness and distinct stages of development, so they enter school fully prepared to succeed.”Download the full September 2010 Edition here.
