If I can’t be home, let me be Almost Home!

Our Programs

Our Story

Built on the idea that kids deserve programs that will enrich their lives, Almost Home was founded by a mom who couldn’t find a daycare that would provide her children with the care and safety she knew they needed.

She decided to meet that need by opening one herself, believing that she could create a fun, engaging environment that would support both kids and their parents.

With a particular focus on safe transportation, homework completion, and a balance of indoor and outdoor activity, Almost Home’s staff of licensed and accredited teachers prepare every child for an evening of quality family time.

Almost Home - VPK Tampa Fl


Be the Thunder

Almost Home had a surprise visit from The Tampa Bay Lightning’s own Thunderbug at the 2019 VPK Graduation. The kids were in love the minute he walked through the door.


Hot! Hot! Hot!

Here at Almost Home we love to burn off some steam with a dance party. After a long week of homework, the kids can relax and unwind with a Friday Dance Off!

Notes From Our Families

"If you don’t want to have to worry about the safety and well-being of your children, Almost Home is it. Not only is that their top priority but they also work in keeping the kids active and engaged. Our son is never ready to come home! We’re pretty convinced he likes the center and being there than coming home! This team is the best in our area."

"Babysitting on Fridays is the best. I love being here and the field trips in the summer are my favorite. Ms. Kaylee is awesome! She’s my favorite, too."
- Thomas MacKenzie
"Almost home is an incredible facility. Our Daughter Aubrey has attended for the past 2 ½ years and I’m beyond grateful for how well they’ve taken care of her. The staff has become like family to my daughter and to us. My daughter is very smart and I give most of the credit to them!!! They teach to the child’s individual needs, it’s truly incredible. Anyone that asks me where my daughter goes to school I proudly tell them and rave about how awesome this school is!!!"

"Kaylee and her staff at Almost Home have been amazing to our family since our son has been attending. They’ve watched him grow through his elementary years and have helped him grow into a young man. They do a great job communicating with us about homework and all the activities that take place at the center. Even on non-school days, our son asks to go to Almost Home. The afternoon structure with homework time is amazing and we truly appreciate all the time and effort the staff puts in during the school year to help our son be successful. Our sons biggest request comes in the summer with their theme weeks, field trips, and different activities that go on during the week. We can’t thank the Almost Home staff enough for all they have done for our son and family."

"There are Daycare’s and then there are places that feel like “HOME”. Almost Home is the home away from home that I chose for my boys. When you are a parent who works full time you have to make the tough decision of where to send your child when you are working. My husband and I made the best decision when we chose“Almost Home”. The staff is so warm and dedicated. They know every child’s name and personality and that gives me comfort that my boys are in the right place. As parents we don’t always make the right decision but picking “Almost Home”was the best decision we made. Plus date night what a great bonus.. We love this place and the people that make it so special. If you choose “Almost Home”you have been given a golden ticket to the best."
