We offer weekly classes to improve your child's language and literacy skills.  These include Baby & Me, PreK Prep, Kindergarten Readiness/Magnet Prep, and Kindergarten Reading. We also offer special camps and events such as Juneteenth celebrations and MORE!



We invite you to book an assessment to see where your child is scoring academically compared to others. These tests are perfect for kindergarten magnet testing and overall kindergarten readiness. 

What is Daytime 

Feeling overwhelmed with preparing for kindergarten testing?

We administer standardized assessments for ages 3-6 for you to see how your child is currently performing academically. Then, we review your child's scores and provide consultation on skills to be improved. 

VALUABLE BONUS: You get to watch the beginning of testing, so you can see how your child answers questions and interacts with an unfamiliar adult.

My name is Shannon Ali, M.A., CCC-SLP. I started Daytime Playtime in 2020 when I noticed the need for more language, literacy, and kindergarten readiness skills in our area. With my background as a speech-language pathologist and certified teacher, I knew the importance of involving a child's parents in early childhood education. While I now have other amazing teachers leading our classes at DTPT, I host a FREE podcast called Keys to Kindergarten Readiness where I teach parents how to raise smart, independent preschoolers who love Jesus.  Check it out below!

We attended the Magnet Test camp and she was so detailed and helped my daughter Mya to prepare for the test. Mya just got into her top choice. Definitely one of best rewarding experiences so far. I highly recommend the Daytime Playtime to everyone.
