Caring & Dedicated
At Tyke Time we are passionate, dedicated, and caring committed to making a difference in children’s lives
and supporting their parents and caregivers.
Tyke Time Founder/Director
I am a mother of two and come from a family of teachers. I love teaching my children through the art of play and I am thrilled to bring a child-led play space like Tyke Time to our community! I adore children and think they are beautiful creatures that yearn for knowledge and are molded by their environments. I also think it is amazing that 90% of a child's brain development happens before age five! I want to provide a space where they thrive; a place where we can watch their brains develop each day. I also know that parents and caregivers need continuous support. Tyke Time was born to focus on both child and the parent or caregiver offering a space where we can connect with our children and simultaneously with other parents or caregivers in the community.
Share stories. Share experiences. Share knowledge.
Dedicated to my teachers: Samuel & Esme
Tyke Time Teacher
I am a mom and grandma who has worked with children since high school. I majored in art college, but found my true calling when I became a preschool teacher at St. Andrew's by-the-Sea and have worked in children's programming for 17 years. I love working with kids and their parents!
Program Director, St. Andrew's by-the-Sea

Emily and her husband of nearly 20 years, Greg, have four children, ages 4-13. She loves God, reading, traveling, sewing, Vacation Bible School, and eating dark chocolate.
What People Are Saying
Tyke time is such a warm, loving, educational, and fun environment for Hudson and I to come to each week. I love exposing Hudson to children of all ages and allowing to be a part of this phase of socialization before he enters into pre-school. I am so grateful that this place exists for all Moms!
