Skycrest Child Development Center


The Skycrest Child Development Center offers high-quality child care for children ages 2 and up, including a free Voluntary Pre-K program.  We also offer before and after school care with bus transportation to and from several local elementary schools.  

Our Voluntary Pre-K program just recieved a 100% Kindergarten Readiness Rate, which is the highest possible score, indicating that 100% of our VPK students were academically well-prepared for kindergarten.  

At Skycrest Child Developement Center, we believe every child is a special and unique gift from God.  Our primary goals are to enhance the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual development of children. Contact us to schedule your tour today: 727.446.5047 or 

 "I have been wanting to tell you how much your care and support meant, not only for [my child] but for the whole family.  He was very blessed to be in your care.  I couldn't begin to say all the nice things that need to be said about the school, and the most wonderful staff I have dealt with in my 28 years of dealing with preschools.  If you should ever want a reference from an overprotective grandmother, please don't hesitate to share my contact information."
