Frequently Asked Questions

What are your hours of operation?

6:30 am - 6:30 pm Monday through Friday.

What age children do you accept?

Children beginning with ages 6 weeks old through 12 years.

Is transportation provided to local schools?

Yes, our school has school buses with seat belts to transport children from school in the afternoon, and on all field trips. We provide service to the following schools: Weddington, Wesley Chapel, Stallings, Newtown, McKee, Socrates, Union Academy, Providence Springs, Antioch, Indian Trail and Sun Valley.

Are field trips offered for the children?

Yes, our buses are available for area field trips. We transport children who meet the state's age requirements. These children are given opportunities to see their community and other places of interest year-round. Whether it is the local grocery store, the petting zoo, the library, or entertainment places such as roller skating, bowling or putt-putt golf, we provide fun and learning for the children and guarantee the maximum protection plan for parents` peace of mind.

Is playtime/outdoor time available?

Yes, our schools are equipped with four areas of outside play, each age-appropriate and sectioned off from the other three areas. The children have scheduled times in the morning and the afternoon to explore their outside world. As an added safety feature, our school has six-foot fencing around the outside perimeter of the play areas. The play equipment is state-of-the-art, and Kids 'R' Kids abides by the federal regulations on safety equipment and the surrounding fall zones.

Are meals and snacks provided?

Yes, we serve hot "home cooked" meals and slice up fresh fruit daily with nutritional snacks each afternoon. You will not need to worry about providing any food for your child...no packing lunches, juice boxes, or hanging onto those leftovers from dinner the night before. In fact, as an added safety feature for many children, we are a peanut-free facility and do not allow outside food to be brought in unless approved by a director. Our location is equipped with a full-service kitchen and staff trained in nutrition, USDA guidelines, and proper portions for young children.

Is your staff trained?

Our staff is trained in First Aid/CPR, Infectious Disease Control, Injury Prevention, and Child Abuse Awareness. Additional training in our amazing, nationally recognized curriculum, child development, classroom arrangement, classroom management, age-appropriate activities, nutrition, field trip planning and OSHA regulations provide the staff with skills needed to create a quality learning environment. Our owners and directors encourage and pay for staff to further their education through Early Childhood programs and are given opportunities to attend professional training conferences. While many of our teachers already have Early Childhood degrees or equal education, Kids `R` Kids pays for the continuing educational efforts for all of our teachers.

Is there internet viewing of my child at your center?

Yes, we have 32 cameras throughout the building that provide an amazing resource in connecting family members with their child. Whether you are a parent at work during the day or a distant family member living in another part of the country, our cameras provide you with the opportunity for real-time viewing of your child while at our facility. Every parent and family member has access to this feature through an individual passcode protected website. These same cameras are fed to the front desk for additional monitoring by administrative staff.

How can I get more information about enrolling my child?

We are glad you are interested in finding out more about our school. Please use the contact form to provide us with your name, address and phone number. We will send you more information through the mail. We look forward to meeting you when you come in for a tour. Thank you for your time and for visiting our website.
