* We understand that children develop at different rates, but our three-year-old classrooms are designed for children who are potty trained. Having a child who is not potty trained in one of our three-year-old rooms requires additional staffing to meet the diapering needs. As a result, we will hold tuition to the two-year-old rate until the child has successfully learned to use the toilet. If there is a medical condition that does not allow the child to be successful in toileting as noted by a physician, we will waive the two-year-old rate in place of the three-year-old tuition.

** The Methodist Children’s Academy offers school-year Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK). VPK is a free, half-day (9:00am – Noon) educational program through the state of Florida that prepares 4-year-olds for success in kindergarten and beyond. Contact for more information on how to get started. Click HERE to find out more from the Florida Department of Education.
