Prime Time offers a loving home away from home for young children and their families.

We want your child to establish a confident, self-assured foundation as they socialize, learn, and grow.

Our Programs


Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is an important part of our monthly curriculum and the foundation of our school’s culture. The goal of Kind Child is to improve the emotional well-being of each child in our care through the development of valuable character traits such as Empathy, Responsibility, Respect, and a Positive Self-Image. Our teachers focus on developing social-emotional skills each month and a different character trait every two months. The result is a preschool environment where every child feels welcome and valued.


At Prime Time we believe:

  • Play-based learning is essential to early childhood development.
  • Problem solving opportunities occur within the context of genuine questions and child-directed investigations.
  • Interactions that are rich for learning are cultivated by teachers who are receptive to children’s interests and needs.
  • Appropriate and rich learning materials should be selected and provided according to the individual interests of children.
  • Our classrooms and schools should be filled with love, laughter, and learning.

Without a doubt one of the best places to help your children grow. Wonderful learning environment My son has more than teachers. He has a family. Everyone is absolutely amazing, from Eva the director to the after-school teachers.

Our daughter has only been going here for a few days, but the difference between primetime and her previous daycare is night and day! The staff is caring, and she's clearly happier.

Sent both my boys to Prime Time at different stages. Much appreciated the open communication from school director, always treat us as human beings. We enjoy the school app that tracks activities in the classroom and always love the pictures sent home via the app!

My original review still stands; PTELC in Middletown NY is an awesome educational institution. My daughter is now a Scout and has thrived in leaps and bonds. Everyone at PTELC are phenomenal and have true love and concern for every kiddo under their care. We have a wonderful relationship in which we can freely have conversations and set up game plans for success. Their encouragement and positive knowledge as helped so many times in reinforcing school to home practices. From my very first experience with just wanting more information about the school, Mrs. Sharon and Mrs. Eva were there to answer all of our questions, navigated a virtual tour and placed us at ease about finally sending our 2yr old to begin her own life adventures. As a PIONEER, my daughter's knowledge and experiences exploded. Ms. Emily and Ms. Olivia are fantastic teachers that have poured into my child tremendously and I have seen her growth in areas of socializing, pretend play, sharing/caring of others, etc. They have impacted her to the point that she includes them in stories that she makes and verbally recites. For a moment, it was very difficult to leave her in the morning as my daughter would scream cry for us leaving her, but Ms. Emily/Olivia were on the move ready to sweep her in and walk her through the process of handling her emotions and we can now honestly say that our child has surpassed this detachment milestone and is thriving. Thank you, PTELC!!
