About Us

With a love of children at our core, each Kids ‘R’ Kids facility is family owned and operated to ensure a solid sense of community.

Overview of Our Campus

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of East Cobb/ Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta is an extended day preschool (ages 6 weeks through 5 years) that also offers an after school program (ages 5 to 12 years). We have been owned and operated since 1999 by loving parents of three children, Frank and Amelia Bennett. The Bennett’s passion concerning the care and education of the next generation is unmatched!

Our Learning Academy combines the benefits and resources of a franchise system with the attention and hands-on management of an on-site owner. Your child will experience a safe, nurturing, and educational environment that focuses on individual developmental and learning needs. Our goal is to set the standard for quality education in developmental learning centers and after school care in the East Cobb County area. We provide quality care with an educational focus for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age.

We desire the absolute best for the children in our care and, therefore, we provide:A safe and secure, state-of-the-art environment with onsite owners

  • Creative, fun, and technology-driven accredited educational programs
  • Dedicated, highly-trained, and personable teachers and staff
  • Nutritious meals prepared onsite that exceed USDA guidelines
  • Convenient drop-off and pick-up with flexible hours

Below we have listed a few key attributes that set our elite Learning Academy apart from an average childcare or daycare center.

•   Teachers – For every 100 resumes we receive, we hire only one person.  We have an exhaustive and comprehensive approach to hiring only the best, most qualified and caring teachers and staff.  This explains why our parents give us a 99% satisfied rating each year in our annual parent surveys.

•   Educational Excellence and Loyalty in our Staff – Our average Lead Teacher tenure is over 10 years (a rarity in any preschool!) and most hold a four-year degree in Early Childhood Development or a related field, or have a large amount of experience commensurate with a degree.

•   NAEYC Accreditation –  We are one of only two preschools in all of Cobb County to be both nationally accredited by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and a Center of Distinction as designated by the State of Georgia, the highest quality designation awarded to preschools.

•   AdvancED Accreditation – Kids ‘R’ Kids is the first national early childhood education franchise to be granted District Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation commission, the national commission that confers the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA/CASI, SACS/CASI and NWAC) accreditation seal.

•   Curriculum – Our Fast Track curriculum is written by a team of educational experts, based on the latest research and high academic standards, and provides developmentally appropriate, child-initiated and teacher-guided activities.

•   State-of-the-art facility – The spacious and secure facility boasts three separate age-appropriate outdoor playgrounds, a computer lab, café, various age-appropriate classrooms and much more!

•   Secure Online Viewing – We are delighted to offer our parents the ability to view their children in their classrooms via the Internet at any moment in the day, through our password-protected Watch Me Grow camera system. This is a very popular feature for our working and stay-at-home parents, deployed parents and many grandparents who might live out of state or even out of the country.

•   Enrichment Classes – We love introducing children to unique skill sets and abilities through our diverse enrichment classes that are included in your child’s tuition. We offer Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Music and Movement, and Yoga.

•   Extra Curricular Activities – Available for an additional nominal fee are Tumble Time Gymnastics, Happy Feet Soccer, Playball, and Ballet and Tap Dance.

•   Technology-filled Classrooms – Our 3 and 4 year-old classrooms as well as PreK classrooms interact with the Hatch Early Childhood SmartBoard Learning System and the Hatch IstartSmart touch screen computers. We also offer access to ABCmouse to our families in our older three year old through pre-kindergarten classes.  This is a school and home – based, multi-award winning, early childhood education website with learning activities for reading, mathematics, science, social studies, art, and music.

In addition to being the perfect choice for your family’s early educational needs, we seek to be your partners in the care and education of your child. Plan your visit today
