Administration and Education Center


From the time you walk into the Wallace-MacKinnon Administrative Building and into the brightly decorated lobby, children and guests are treated to a warm, happy atmosphere.  The Welcome Center boasts a life-size tree with a play area nestled into the trunk.  Video game consoles, televisions, air hockey, and toddler play areas assure that there is something for everyone.  The Activity Center opens up to the spacious campus and provides plenty of space for games and crafts as well as the occasional party or dance.  Rounding out the building are offices for administrative staff, classrooms, and a library. 


Classrooms devoted to our Toddler Class, the Pre-Kindergarten classroom, and the Hillsborough County classroom for grades kindergarten to 5th are always buzzing with activity.  Based on the child's individual needs, he or she might be engrossed in a Pre-K science project creating a paper mache' globe or forming real crystals.  Toddlers play dress-up and enjoy story time, and the Hillsborough County classroom hosts children from kindergarten to grade 5, working in tandem with Brooker Elementary School.


Volunteers are always welcome at A Kids Place and there are numerous ways you can be a part of what we do.  While hands-on time with the children is extremely limited, we offer other opportunities to get involved such as special events, campus clean-ups, and on-site summer camp.  Our donation room and pantry are staffed exclusively with volunteers, and our facility remains sparkling clean thanks to industrious people who help us keep it that way.  Last year our volunteers logged over 4800 hours in service!

My Philosophy - Dottie Berger MacKinnon

"Our kids have had a rough time before they came to us, and chances are they will have a rough time after they leave -  maybe for a long time.  Somewhere down the road they are going to remember that there was a period in their lives when life was good, when people cared, and there were loving people in this world who made them feel special - because they are.  That's A Kid's Place.  We all do our little part to make these children feel loved."
