Although there are bus routes, in and around Tampa, I couldn't imagine not having a car for too long just for convenience. Here is their website. You might see where their routes are. Finding an apartment near the bus route might be a plan if you decide against getting a car.

HART - Hillsborough Area Regional Transit

Can't help you with the other questions about kindergarten, etc.

Possibly University of South Florida or Hillsborough Community College has ESL (English as a Second Language) classes.

The University of South Florida (USF) has a foreign language academy that provides tutoring for student who need to take the TOFEL. You probably have to be enrolled at USF to attend, however, it is worth checking on.

Kindergarten costs nothing here - it is provided at no charge as a part of the public school system. Until you know where you will be living it will be difficult to tell you more, as this will determine what school your child would attend.

Public transportation is marginal at best. You may want to identify where you wish to live and see how close it is to the HART (bus) routes.

Are you of the Muslim faith? You may be able to search for organizations in the area that may be able to help you out.
