Whether you're planning a date night, have last-minute plans or just want to go shopping, parents have a new option for childcare.

KidsPark Tampa offers childcare by the hour, seven days a week, for ages 2 to 12 years.

"With KidsPark, they always know we're there," said CEO/owner Amanda Justus. "You don't need a reservation. Drop in whenever you need us."

Opening in May, KidsPark Tampa is the third location in Florida for the California-based franchise. Justus felt there was a need for this type of facility in an area with so many families.

"It's definitely the only type of business like this in the area," Justus said.

KidsPark Tampa has 6,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. The indoor area is divided up into several different activity zones, such as a science station and a theater that is used for acting classes and karaoke.

"The center, it's completely different than what people are used to," Justus said. "We want this to be a place that kids ask to come back."

In addition to hourly childcare, KidsPark Tampa will offer preschool programs for 2- to 3-year-olds. State-funded VPK will be offered for children getting ready to enter kindergarten, with the option to add on hourly childcare.

Justus encourages parents to come tour the facility. There is a one-time registration fee of $25 per family, and hourly rates are $7.75 per child, with discounts for siblings.

KidsPark Tampa is located at 26240 Golden Maple Road, near the Tampa Premium Outlets. It is open 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-midnight Friday, 10 a.m.-midnight Saturday and 1-6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call (813)618-3823, or visit kidspark.com/tampa.
