FAQ


When are you open?

We are open for childcare from 6:30am-6:30pm Monday-Friday. If children are not picked up on time a fee will be charged for every 5 minutes late.


What ages do you accept?

We are a licensed facility for ages 6 weeks-12 years old. We have classes for infants, toddlers, Pre-K as well as elementary aged children before and after school.


Do you provide meals?

Yes! We provide breakfast and lunch as well as a couple of snacks each day for children. If your child has food allergies you must speak with our director on how we can handle these items.  We are a peanut free facility.


Are your staff trained?

Yes. Our staff must meet state requirements to be employed. We encourage them go past just the requirements and earn special certifications.


Do the children get playtime?

Yes! We love for our children to learn by playing. Not only do the children play inside but we have age appropriate play spaces outside.


Do you have a school bus?

Yes. We have a school bus that seats 15 children. In the past our GA Pre-K classes have taken a field trip using it. We primarily use our bus during the summer for camp field trips.


Do you pick up from elementary schools for before and after care?

We do have a bus. We have the capability to pick up from surrounding schools such as Liberty and Sixes Elementary Schools.  The Knox Elementary School Bus picks up and drops off at our school.  If you are interested in RGA picking up your child at a nearby school please call and speak to our Director on how we can make this possible.


May I come see my child at school?

Of course! We have an open door policy for parents and guardians. Often parents come in on special occassions such as birthdays and bring a treat for the class. If you plan on bringing a treat please contact your child's teacher so they can plan for it. Sometimes we have parents or grandparents come and have lunch. If you come please stop at the front desk and check in before heading back to the classroom.


Do you have tours for new families?

Yes! You can stop by but it works better to call ahead and set up a time frame. Our directors know the daily schedule best and can let you know when it would be good to come see classes in action.


What are your rates?

Our rates are available by coming to school. Our tuition is due every Friday. If tuition is not paid by Tuesday that it is considered late and a late fee will be added. We hope we never have this problem but if tuition is continued to not be paid then we will turn it over to a collections agency.  We accept cash, credit cards, and a personal check. If a check is bounced twice we will no longer accept a check from you and you will have to offer another form of payment.


May I smoke in the parking lot?

No. We are a tobacco free campus. You may not use alcohol, drugs, or tobacco on our campus. You may not use these products while participating in a field trip or while in a vehicle used to transport children to a RGA sponsored field trip.


How do you discipline children?

We will redirect children to a positive activity. We hope to make all situations a learning process. While you are on the RGA campus you must adhere to this policy as well.


Do you have any extra activities for children?

Yes! The Tons of Fun Bus comes once a week. We also offer dance classes once a week. New this year is the TOT program. All of these activities are an extra fee but the activities are done on site. For more information stop by the front desk.


Do you give children medicine?

You must have a prescription and a dr's note with an explanation. The medicine must be in its original prescription package. More information on our medicine policy can be found with our Directors.


What if my child has an emergency?

We will contact the person listed as an emergency contact first. If necessary we will seek medical attention and call 911. This is why it is critical we have all emergency contact information filled out on the application as well as medical insurance information.


Are you on social media?

Yes we are on a variety of sites. Look at our " we're social " page for links to check out what we have been doing.
