Welcome to Pleasant Time Learning Center!


We are an educational service caring for the Winthrop community since 1993. Our programs include care for infants through age 6.


Here at PTLC, we strive to provide an exciting and educational environment for your child. Children learn best through exploration and discovery, mixed in with consistency and structure. Our programming incorporates all four! Our weekly themes include activities that touch on math, social and developmental sciences, gross and fine motor, sensory, literacy, STEM, and art. These activities provoke curiosity, thus promoting social and emotional growth through positive interactions with teachers and friends! 

PTLC is in full operation under restrictive guidelines during the current COVID-19 pandemic.


Our facility has been adjusted to ensure we meet all mandated operational criteria set forth by The Center for Disease Control, and The Department of Early Education and Care.


We offer brightwheel to our families! It's an informative and interactive app to help you stay connected to your child throughout the day.


PTLC does not discriminate in providing services to children and their families on the basis of religion, race, color, cultural heritage, political beliefs, maritial status, disability, national origin, or sexual orientation.
