About Us

Prime Time Early Learning Centers

Prime Time recognizes that the first six years of a child’s life involves the most rapid cognitive and physical development. Our Directors are college educated and hold advanced training in early child education and our Teachers and Teacher Assistants strategically challenge each child’s physical and intellectual development with carefully selected and sensitively administered curriculum and materials. Together, our dedicated early learning teams ensure that every child at Prime Time receives the careful care, foundational learning and skill sets that will prepare them for future school success.

Prime Time Early Learning Centers are uniquely designed child care facilities responding to our community’s need for professional, comprehensive child care with a focus on academic and social growth. All our facilities are State licensed and offer a superior curriculum that exceeds State licensing requirements.

Mission Statement

Prime Time Early Learning Centers’ curriculum reflects the most current educational research and is designed to assure the development of all skills necessary for students’ future school success. All Prime Time centers offer an environment that is safe and loving, with a staff that is well trained, highly motivated and dedicated to each child’s well being. Prime Time is dedicated to fostering harmonious home-school relations through open communication with parents and strives to always be responsive to the needs of families and the community.

Rochelle “Ricci” Wasserman, with her husband and partner Joel Wasserman, established a school that both teaches and nurtures children from infancy through school age. Prime Time’s comprehensive program includes fully licensed child care for infants and toddlers; a dynamic education program developed specially for 3 and 4 year olds; a full-day preschool; before- and after-school enrichment programs for elementary school students; and a summer camp for children ages 3-9.
