Drop In Caregirl-525886_640

Drop-in care is a form of childcare where you can pay for only the time that you need. This means that parents are free to design a childcare schedule that fits their needs. Most childcare providers ask that you pay for a full week of care, even on weeks that you may not need every day. Drop in care is available for as much or as little time as you need. Our staff will check your child in upon arrival. This starts the time clock for your family. When you come to pick up your child, we check them out and the cost is rounded to the nearest minute. You pay for only the time present. Reservations are recommended for drop-in care as this is limited to space available in each room.

Full Time Care

baby-444950_640Full-time care is a more traditional approach to childcare. This care is provided from 6:30am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. In the event that you are late past 6pm, we will simply convert to our hourly rates between 6pm and 7pm. No more stress attacks every time you get stuck in a traffic jam on the way to pick up your child! Any fees accrued from care after 6pm will be in addition to the full-time rate. 7pm is our firm closing time.

Before and After School Care

Because we are so close to New Kent Elementary, Stay & Play is in the perfect location to provide before boy-286241_640and after school care. Our morning schedule includes breakfast and free play time. After school, we will provide a snack and homework assistance. Once the homework is done, we offer playtime, both inside and outside, weather permitting.
We also know that time is a precious resource for families.  That is why we also offer music lessons (additional fees apply).  We offer after school lessons for guitar, banjo, mandolin, and piano.  Won’t it be nice to pick up your child knowing that homework and music lessons are already done and you can just go home?


A weekly menu will be posted at the front desk for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Each a la carte breakfast is $1, and lunch is $4. Snacks are included! If you are part of the Before and After school program, an after school snack is included in your plan.
