A child's learning, growth and development...and ultimate success...is built on the foundation
of family, community and shared values. Prime Time Academy exists to nuture and reinforce
these values and to guide our children: physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally.
Prime Time is where children flourish and where children are cherished.
"...we could go to work and relax knowing Katie's care at Prime Time was just about as close
to parent's love and affection as she could get away from us. You have been GREAT teachers.
GREAT substitute parents and WONDERFUL friends."
Pat Greg and Katie

Would you say...."I sure hope the Cardinals have an ordinary season and finish in the middle of the pack."
"Honey, let's go out for an ordinary dinner and follow it up with an ordinary movie that nobody really
wants to see."
Doesn't your child deserve better than ordinary?
At Prime Time we reinforce traditional values... like respect, common courtesy, politeness and manners.
Our children know the magic words... "please" and "thank you". The Prime Time difference is evident
as soon as you walk through the door. Rather than chaos... even controlled chaos... you can feel the
calm orderliness of children learning... and having fun doing it. Yes, we're kind of old fashioned
this way. But we believe that as a teacher works with a child, the child learns self esteem;
when teachers clean up play areas with children - and when children clean up after themselves -
children learn about an orderly life and self responsibility; when teachers say "no", children learn
limits; when teachers hug, hold and comfort a child, a child learns about love, trust and
supportive relationships with adults.
Our teachers are, quite simply, incomparable. collectively, they are better trained, more experienced,
and more committed, motivated and dedicated than the industry standard. Your child's teachers are
always accessible, and are always willing to lend assistance. They give more to your child than we -
or you - could ever attempt to repay. They deserve our utmost respect and courtesy. How do we
attract and retain the best teachers for your child? In addition to a stimuating professional
environment, we provide our teachers with one of the best and most comprehensive benefit packages
in the industry, including: paid personal leave days, a generous vacation plan with up to four weeks
paid vacation, professional development and advancement opportunity, health insurance, matched employer
contibutions to a 401K plan, and more. These are some of the ways we attract the absolute best
teachers for your child, and why Prime Time's teacher turnover is among the lowest in the industry...
assuring you and your child of the continuity that is so important.
"They all laughed when I said my childcare was better than grandma". That's what a Prime Time parent
told us, and we think it makes our point perfectly; we understand that your child is the most
important person on earth. And we provide your child with love and attention and guidance and,
yes, discipline. All of this, combined with our award winning academic program and your positive
involvement, assures your child's readiness for school and for life. You absolutely cannot do better
for your child than Prime Time Academy... at any price. On this you have out solemn promise and our
written guarantee. But talk is cheap... and lots of centers talk about their "program". These pages
contain excerpts from some of the hundreds of cards, letters and notes that we have received from
parents, teachers, administrators and other professionals about Prime Time Academy... people right here
in the community. Every one of these is reproduced in it's entirety in the "Book of Prime Time" and
awaits your review at our school. We invite you to stop in... anytime... and see for yourself.
