On Fridays we provide pizza and snacks for your child if you choose to participate. Also, on occasion we provide snacks such as goldfish, air-popped popcorn, or a special holiday treat.

Do you offer a VPK program?

Do you accept vouchers or government supplements?

  • We do not accept either at this time.

How long is your waitlist?

  • It is impossible to answer this question due to the many variables that impact when a child can start, such as classroom availability, child’s age, toilet training status, when the child was placed on the list, etc.

What time is drop off/pick up?

  • Drop off is between 7:30 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. Currently each class has a second drop off time as follows: Coconut Class 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. and Key Lime Class 10:35 a.m. – 11:10 a.m.
  • Pick up – your child may be picked up at any time of the day except between 11:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. unless there is a true emergency.

What are the startup costs?

  • Parents/Guardians can apply for enrollment of their child(ren) by submitting the following:
    • A registration fee equal to one week’s tuition
    • A deposit equal to two weeks tuition
    • A label order fee of $30

Do I have to pay tuition even if my child is out sick or we are on vacation?

  • It is our philosophy that clients are paying for the spot that their child will take in our center. This is not based upon attendance but rather on a set weekly fee that is due regardless of the attendance of the child that holds the spot.
