From the beginning, Prime Time Early Learning Centers has focused on family. As one of the six tenets of our child care philosophy, “Family Owned, Family Focused”, instills the importance of providing a loving and enriching environment not only for the families of our enrolled children, but also for our employees. Our founder, Ricci Wasserman was working with children with disabilities in Englewood Cliffs when she was inspired to found an early childhood center in Upper Saddle River in 1983. She realized that the disabled children had siblings that were not disabled, and their parents needed to bring them both to a quality preschool. Now, over thirty years later, Prime Time continues to specialize in providing quality child care by our well-trained staff, and still pride ourselves on being family owned and operated.

When Prime Time Ricci and Joel Wasserman, decided to step back from the daily operations of our six Prime Time Centers in early 2015, they asked their son and daughter-in-law to join Prime Time. As Executive Director, Julie Harris Wasserman is responsible for overseeing all six schools and supporting the Administration and Operations Staff. Jeff Wasserman, the Facilities, Safety and Security Director, keeps the children safe by making sure each center is in working order, safe and secure. Our tradition of “Family Focused” continues with our employees, many of whom have been with us over ten years. We emphasize strong family bonds with our employees and our families that leave their children in our care. Come join our family!!
