  1. KIDS’ STUFF OFFERS SCHOOL READINESS ACADEMICS EVERY MORNING FOR EVERY AGE GROUP, FROM TODDLERS THROUGH VPK, TO HELP PREPARE YOUR CHILD FOR SCHOOL.
PRESCHOOL/CHILDCARE DEFINITION

Childcare is defined as any time before or after academic hours, and/or a Childcare Day

(determined by the Pasco County School Calendar when preschool classes are not held due to public schools not being in session.)

  1. Morning-only attendees are considered Preschool.
  2. All-day attendees are considered Childcare.

PUNCTUALITY

Punctuality is very important for your child as a sense of structure, and a sense of respect to the other students. Program start and end times are as follows: 

  1. Toddler/Twos     8:30 – 12:15
  2. Threes                  8:30 – 12:30
    Pre-K                    8:30 – 1:00
  3. Kindergarten/First Grade      9:00 – 3:15

ABSENTEE/VACATION POLICY

Full tuition is required even when your child is absent.
