Koalaty Time

For good beginnings that last a lifetime.


Providing a safe and loving environment...


Where children can flourish...


In mind, body, and spirit...


And reach their maximum potential.


Outstanding Kindergarten Prep

Developmentally appropriate curriculum.


Koalaty Time Child Development Center and Pre-School believes every child is unique. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can develop their sense of curiosity and learn life lessons that build character and enhance a love of learning.

Koalaty Time strategically researches and designs curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate for each classroom. Having eighteen classrooms, divided into four PODS, allows the children to move through our program based on their development.

Our curriculum is not only educationally stimulating but also encompasses a variety of imperative life skills such as respect, manners and etiquette, bullying awareness and prevention, self esteem, and self efficacy.

We make it a priority to maintain a clean learning environment by cleaning multiple times throughout the day and diffusing essential oils to keep the air purified.

“Koalaty Time is truly amazing! Jan and the entire KT staff make our two kiddos feel extremely welcome. With a teaching background myself, I searched for a center with excellent curriculum. I’m thrilled to say we have found that at KT! Thank you Jan and all the amazing KT teachers and staff.  We are blessed to be part of the KT family!”
