School Operational Hours

Life gets busy and schedules get hectic. Being a working parent can mean a daily scramble for child care. At Smart Start Academy, we keep busy, working parents in mind with extended hours for most days at each of our four education centers. While the operating hours may vary on holidays and among each location, we are generally open from 7 am to 7 pm, with the last child pickup at 6:30 pm. At each of Smart Start Academy’s locations, a $1.00 per minute late pick-up fee will be assessed after 7:00 pm unless prior arrangements have been made.  For the most current hours of operation, we encourage parents to contact the specific campus for their hours.
