tag, we’re IT!

 Island Time was designed with FUN in mind. We are your solution to flexible childcare. We offer hourly childcare (with reservation) for up to 4 hours, after school programs, summer camp programs, preschool, and more!


What’s Happening

Thanks for your interest in Island Time.   

We have done some rearranging at IT, allowing for more age appropriate play for all kiddos.  We now have a Toddler Room and a separate 2s/3s room in the mornings before 2pm.   As always, reservations are required.    



Date Nights are on Saturdays and we are hoping to open up regular Saturday hours soon.  Check out our Island Time Calendar for all things Island TIme.  We are also offering Create Your Own Date Nights.  Just need 5 kids to add a date to our calendar.  



Flexible Childcare

About Us

At Island Time we are focused on FUN.  We have various areas to suit all ages from 12 mo to 12 years. There is something for everyone!


Our programs include drop-in childcare (with reservation), preschool, after school programs, summer camps, birthday parties and more!


Island Time offers various programs to fit your needs. From regular programs to hourly childcare, we’re here when you need us!

Hourly Play

Hourly Play (formerly known as “drop-in”) is one of our most popular programs. With this option we can provide hourly care when you need it without the financial obligation when you don’t! Our hourly play option offers up to 4 hours of play for kids from 12 months to 12 years old.

All children must be registered before participating in any activities at Island Time. If you are new to Island Time, registration is free and you can go ahead and do it ahead of time!

“She absolutely loves it! She has been to other daycares locally in Wilmington before. This is her favorite, and my favorite to send her to as well. They are highly responsive and willing to fit you in. They have a lovely center and are genuinely friendly people.  I have seen nothing but professionalism from this place and happy children. They are trust worthy and definitely worth trying.” Dominique M.
