Attention to detail is the key to an unsurpassed early education experience
Policies for excellence and peace of mind
The relationship between families and school staff is vital to the success of a child’s early learning experience. Through the use of open communication, we believe building a teacher-parent partnership will benefit the child in making a positive connection between school and home.
We offer healthy meals and snacks which include fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. We have a 5-week rotating menu and a copy of each menu is provided in the lobby and café weekly. Daily we provide morning snack, lunch and two afternoon snacks. Our meals comply with the state nutrition guidelines judged by the National Research Council to be adequate for maintaining good nutrition based on recommended nutrient intake.
Tuition rates and all applicable information are included in your enrollment packet or are available upon request. Please feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (706) 546-9400. We offer sibling discounts and “absent credits” for two vacation weeks per child each calendar year.
Kids ‘R’ Kids After school program has been a hit with our children since opening in 2000! We transport our kids in our buses from the Oconee County schools each day back to Kids ‘R’ Kids where we begin our afternoons with homework time and then straight to fun educational activities with friends. We offer tutoring and a full curriculum for our school age children and also provide holiday camps for when schools are closed.
We pick up from the following schools: Dove Creek Elementary, Malcom Bridge Elementary, Rocky Branch Elementary, Oconee Elementary, Oconee Primary, Colham Ferry Elementary and High Shoals Elementary.
Our Pre-K and school age children go on a variety of fun and educational field trips throughout the year.
Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Watkinsville offers parents and other selected family members anywhere in the world, secure on-line video streaming of their child’s classroom via Watch Me Grow.
The safety of the children is our first concern in the event of an emergency such as severe weather. If there is an emergency and it becomes necessary to close the school outside of normal operating hours, parents will be notified to arrange for early pick-up. Parents will also be instructed by the school, using our facebook page, our website, or Tadpolesto provide closing information if there is inclement weather and it is determined that the school will not open.
If an emergency develops and it is determined that the building or premises is unsafe due to a severe weather situation, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location. Families will be notified of the situation.
Note that we perform regular tornado drills in the school to be best prepared for an emergency.
At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we use positive redirection to guide the children toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will “redirect” the child toward appropriate behavior. The use of physical punishment and harsh language is prohibited.
Praise, positive reinforcement and positive redirection are effective methods for the behavior management of children. When children receive positive, non-violent, and understanding interactions from adults and others, they develop good self-concepts, problem solving abilities and self-discipline. We use positive behavior management techniques such as positive phrasing to further develop self-discipline.
The relationship between families and school staff is vital to the success of a child’s early learning experience. We believe building a teacher-parent partnership, using open communication, will benefit the child in making a positive connection between school and home.
