How do you approach potty training?

We encourage potty training by incorporating it into our curriculum. We suggest that children try it when they show curiosity about friends who have already learned. Our classrooms are equipped with low toilets so that children can use them by themselves. We accept accidents as part of the learning process and gladly help children change into clean clothes. Children will be taken to the potty several times per day. They will be taught the proper way to pull pants up and down, wipe, flush and wash hands. Once you feel that your child is ready to move from diapers to underwear, we ask that you start this process by allowing them to practice wearing underwear over the weekend. The last step in the transition is to have a conference with your child’s teacher to discuss the progress being made at home and school and set a date for your child to start wearing underwear fulltime.

What is your staff-to-child ratio?

We generally keep a ratio of 1:4 in our infant and toddler classes with each classroom having between two to four teachers and eight to twelve children. Our preschool classroom generally has two teachers and fifteen to twenty-five children.

What is your discipline policy?

We encourage positive guidance. Positive guidance teaches children where limits are set, how to maintain control of their bodies, and how to problem solve in the event of the conflict. When an issue arises, teachers provide positive guidance and help them to realize how to make safe, healthy choices.

What is your policy regarding illnesses?

In addition to the physician’s examination and immunization records required for enrollment, we will observe each child’s health. If we observe your child developing symptoms of illness during the day we will isolate him or her from the other children and call you to pick up your child. For the health and well-being of your child and others, a child must be kept home if he/she develops any of the following symptoms of contagious disease until symptom free for 24 hours or the child’s physician indicates a child can return to the center:

  • Diarrhea
  • Tears, redness of eyelids with discharge
  • Mouth sores with or without drooling
  • A fever of 101°F or above
  • Unusual spots or rashes
  • Sore throat or trouble swallowing
  • Infected skin patches
  • Vomiting
  • A parasite
What forms of payments do you accept?

We encourage families to enroll in our automatic bank draft program. We also accept major credit cards.

How do you deal with food allergies?

During our initial parent interview, we create a written action plan for children that have allergies. In this plan we outline how our teachers will handle daily avoidance of allergen exposure in the classroom environment.Our teachers are trained to avoid food sharing, they closely observe children during mealtimes, and they make sure that art activities do not include allergic foods or ingredients.

How do you help children transition from home to preschool?

We allow children to come in for a free “try it day” to familiarize you and your child with our program. We give you a list of some things to expect from our program and allow you the opportunity to speak to your child’s teacher and discuss your child’s habits, allergies, etc.

How often do you clean toys?

Every time a toy is placed in a child’s mouth, it is set aside in our mouthed toy bucket until it can be cleaned and disinfected. Toys are also sanitized each evening.

How do you communicate with parents?

Communication is one of our highest priorities. We believe that the quality if children’s development is dependent on the communication between parents and their teachers. When you enroll your child in Kidovations you will be introduced to our Tadpoles program. Our tadpoles program allows you to receive photos and daily reports via the tadpole app or your email box. We also communicate via phone calls, family conferences twice per year, our Kidovations facebook page, and our Kido blog. We also send out emails regarding special events. You will also receive a weekly curriculum newsletter from your child’s teacher and a monthly newsletter from the center.

Do children play outside everyday?

Absolutely if weather permits.

Are you closed for inclement weather?

Kidovations follows the Bulloch County School System regarding closing during inclement weather. If Bulloch County Schools are closed, our school will be closed. If Bulloch County Schools open late or close early, our school schedule will do the same.
