About the Provider


For over 55 years, Circle Time Child Care Inc. has prepared children for success. Our goal is to provide exceptional child care while preparing children for kindergarten. Circle Time believes that a child's infant and toddler years are a period of significant cognitive, emotional, and social development, a time where exploration, socialization, communication, and play are a critical center-point in a child's life. For that reason, we strive to implement curriculums that will individually enhance a child's natural ability to learn and create. Proudly, 70% of our children graduate with almost first-grade reading levels, while the remaining 30% of graduates achieve kindergarten level reading skills. On occasion, some students graduate reading at a second-grade level. These statistics are a solid testament to the hard work and dedication we put towards our children and the impacts Circle Time has on the future of our community through education. We are a beloved institution dedicated to the growth and success of our children as we endeavor to assist them in reaching their full potential.
