About Us

Research has shown that children take in more information between the ages of one and six years than they do the remainder of their lives.  Kids `R` Kids #23 in Watkinsville wants to be part of that very important time in your child`s life. 


Kids `R` Kids has consistently provided a very high level of care and education to all of its students since opening in the Athens / Oconee area in 2000.  We invite you to visit us to see the difference in the care we provide for our children.  Our low child-to-staff ratio allows us the ability to give the extra attention to detail to every aspect of your child`s daily care and learning. 


Learning should be a happy and rewarding experience and we created our learning process with the child`s physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs in mind.  We have instituted a unique approach of delineating our classrooms by organizing the classrooms by developmental milestone groupings in addition to chronological age groups.  By diminishing gaps in behavioral development within the class, peer groups are created that share similar cognitive aptitudes.  This approach allows the children to enjoy a higher level of accomplishment in the classroom.  The lessons in each classroom can then be customized to more specifically meet students` abilities.  We have arranged our classrooms to give each child the opportunity to explore language, art, science, math, reading and writing.  Our environment provides the tools to develop the child`s social and physical skills, as well as nurture their emotional growth. 


Innovative year-round age appropriate programs include weekly Spanish instruction, Chinese instruction and live music instrumentation instruction for all students from infant through pre-k.  Sign language is integrated into our daily infant and toddler programs to enhance communication. 


Our staff is professionally trained in classroom management, positive discipline and parent/teacher communication as well as CPR and first aid.  We employ a variety of learning methods (e.g. visual schedules) to help guide children through their day.  Resources from Child Care Resource and Referral have been used to assist children in furthering their opportunities in the classroom.  Additionally, a great deal of attention is paid to ensure that each classroom environment meets the needs of the children collectively and individually.  We are constantly creating new ways to better our environment for our children.  We have received Georgia`s Center of Distinction accreditation, the highest quality designation awarded to Georgia preschools, are currently a 3 STAR Quality Rated school and are moving forward to receive our NAEYC accreditation. 


We are the only preschool in the area that offers internet viewing access to our parents so that you can watch your child grow and learn with us each day.  This service is included in your tuition and we are proud to provide it to your family.    We use "Tadpoles", a digital communication tool, to update parent's daily on their child's day and activities.


Kids `R` Kids #23 provides for our children a safe and nurturing learning environment.  We are proud to have served the Athens / Oconee area since January 2000.  At Kids `R` Kids, we want the best for your child and will provide the environment to help them mature into a fun filled individual - ready to take on all the world has to offer!  We are looking forward to having you as part of our Kids `R` Kids family.
