Kid University operates Monday through Friday, August through May, with holiday breaks scheduled to coincide with the La Porte ISD Calendar. A yearly calendar of events and closings is published in August each year.
Kid U provides a Breakfast Club for all students from 7:30 AM which includes a hot breakfast and play time in centers. The cost is $5 a day.
Children not in the Breakfast Club may arrive no earlier than 8:40 and all children must be picked up no later than 2:10.
Classes start at 9AM and will end at 2PM. Academic learning will start at 9. The entire day is filled with hands on curriculum, designated lunch and playground times.
Parents are expected to drop off and pick up their children on time. A charge will be assessed for late pick-up. Kid U will offer an after school program beginning in the Fall of 2013 care. Currently we do not provide evening, weekend, or summer care.

Parents may obtain an enrollment packet and information at Monument Baptist Church during the regular business hours or print them online. Please contact the Monument Baptist Church office, April Tolley, Kid U Director or Tammy Massey, Kid U Administrative Assistant (information above) with any questions or concerns you might have.
A completed enrollment packet with a copy of a current immunization record, a health statement signed by a physician and a birth certificate is required before Kid U will assume responsibility of caring for your child.
You are welcome to visit the school during Meet the Teacher/Parent Orientation night in August.
