TodayCare Children’s Center at PHSC is a nationally accredited center and meets the standards of excellence set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. TodayCare has been providing full-time, part-time and evening drop-in child care for PHSC students, faculty and staff, as well as community families since August 2003. Located on the PHSC West Campus in New Port Richey, the 8,000 square foot building is located across from the Anne F. Bucy classroom building (G).
TodayCare Children’s Center at PHSC opened the doors of this contemporary, state-of-the-art child care facility on August 4, 2003. Since that time, along with the collaboration of PHSC staff, we have maintained one of the highest quality preschool centers in Pasco County. The dedicated staff here at TodayCare take their profession very seriously. The work we do here at the earliest stages of youth will be the most effective through life. Since our opening, we have seen seven graduating classes continue on to the next levels of life and education with positive enthusiasm and great self esteem. We are very proud of our accomplishments here at TodayCare Children’s Center at PHSC and look forward to our future.
