Academy Kids Learning Center


Originally developed by Pepin Academies for their faculty and staff in 2004, the Academy Kids Learning Center has since expanded its facility to include all families within the Tampa Bay community interested in finding quality care and education. Serving children from ages six weeks to five years old, our teachers and staff are certified through the Florida Department of Children and Families and complete additional training each year. 

Our teachers use the Frog Street curriculum to plan lessons that are engaging and adapted to the learning styles and needs of each child. Frog Street provides a comprehensive continuum of research-based curriculum in both English and Spanish. The curriculum supports key learning domains and is aligned to state and national learning standards. Conscious Discipline (social-emotional development) is integrated into the curriculum each day

We currently provide our program at the Pepin Academies Tampa campus (3916 E Hillsborough Ave, Tampa, FL 33610). Our center is open *Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and currently follows the Hillsborough County School District Calendar.

*Summer hours may vary

“When my husband and I had our first child, choosing the right daycare seemed like such a difficult task. But from the moment we stepped through the Academy Kids’ door, we knew this was the right place for our family. Our son has flourished under the care of his teachers, who seem like family, and when we found out we were having our second child, we had no doubt where we would be enrolling her. It’s so easy every morning to drop our kids off somewhere they love!”
