STARS & COMETS BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE FOR 2023 – 2024
Stars & Comets before and after school care is beginning registration for the 2023 – 2024 school year. Priority registration for the families of Robin’s Nest will be May 8 – 12 BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
To download the registration packet and/or make a priority registration appointment please visit http://www.starscomets.com/registration
Please be aware that Stars & Comets typically fills very quickly. Usually shortly after open registration to the public begins and well ahead of the actual start of the new school year. So, it would be a fantastic idea to take advantage of the priority registration window that is just for families of Robin’s Nest (and a few other select groups).
If you are not familiar with Stars & Comets, they provide high quality, fun, and safe before and after school care with age-appropriate classes and a low student/teacher ratio. They are open from 7:00 AM until school begins and then again from school dismissal until 6:00 PM. At Stars & Comets, your child will experience a caring, devoted staff, fun activities, and even exciting trips (on breaks and full days). And with competitive rates and a tuition fee that covers everything (regular care, full days and breaks, field trips & activities, snack, and much more) Stars & Comets is a great choice for your before and after-school care needs. Daily activities include things like PM snacks, arts & crafts, homework time, group games, computers/video games, board games, recreation time outside or in the gym, and much more. Stars & Comets is licensed by the Pinellas County Child Care Licensing Board, a division of the Pinellas County Dept. of Health (Lic. #C950796).
