About Us

Playtime Child Care & Learning Center

Playtime has been in continuous operation since 1967. Located in Poquoson, Virginia, our center serves up to 165 children per day, ranging in age from 12 months to 12 years.  Our center is designed to provide a learning environment for the children of our community as well as the children of working parents.  The Playtime environment provides opportunities to think creatively and to make decisions and choices within appropriate limits.

We know that early experiences are the foundation for the growth and development of the child. Searching for new ideas and enjoyable experiences are essential keys to the fulfillment of this commitment to the child. The Playtime child is nurtured in an environment where love and respect are shown for each child as an individual. We bridge the gap from home to school, and we guide the children to a continued good self-image while building social, physical, cognitive, and emotional skills.
