Playtime Child Care is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment
to introduce and develop the child's cognitive, social and motor skills
to be courageous achievers. We will reinforce this foundation throughout
your child's daily activities and play. We will incorporate tools that aid in
your child's social skills (sharing, manners, patience, problem solving)
and social integration to boost self-confidence your child will carry to the
