Kids’ Zone Latchkey Program Enrollment Information

Application Procedures

The Kids’ Zone early application window is now closed. Families will receive notice of acceptance into the Kids’ Zone program by April 28, 2017. The first month’s tuition will be due in September.

Applications for Kids' Zone may still be submitted by completing the forms above and pressing the submit button on the form itself, in person at Tyndall, or email Vickie Roy. Enrollment will now be on a first come first served basis for Fall 2017.

New This Year

  • After the early application window closes, all applications will be considered in the following order for placement: 5-days/week; 4-days/week; 3-days/week; 2-days/week; 1-day/week. We anticipate all requests for placement to be honored for those who register during the application window. If we receive more applications than slots, it might be necessary to hold a lottery for remaining slots in each day/week category. For example: If, after placing all slots except the 1-day/week requests, 1 slot remains for 5 applications, a lottery will be held for those 5 applicants only.
  • Hourly Coupons into the Latchkey program, which were offered in the past, will not be offered for the 2017-18 school year.

If you have any questions or concerns email Vickie Roy or phone 248-837-8905.
