  1. What is the child-teacher ratio for classes at Color Us Kids?

    View our Child-Teacher Ratio Chart for our requirements.

  2. How do teachers communicate with parents?

    At Color Us Kids, we know what a difference parent-teacher communication can make in a child’s development. Parents receive monthly newsletters and notices as they are needed. Daily reports are sent home for infants through 2-year olds. Every fall and spring, you will have a formal opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher and discuss your child’s development. We also encourage you to schedule additional conferences if deemed necessary.

  3. Can I bring a cake to the center to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with her friends?

    Your child’s birthday is a special occasion, and we enjoy celebrating with fun and special snacks to recognize your child. If you notify the Director, arrangements can be made for you to bring a specially prepared snack from home or we will provide a special snack. Parents are always encouraged to celebrate with us. We do ask that the gift giving be reserved for home. Please, no latex balloons.

  4. Do I need to send a blanket and/or a mat with my child for nap time?

    All pre-school aged children are given a daily opportunity to rest, which usually lasts from 1 to 2 hours. Color Us Kids furnishes mats for the children’s comfort, and parents should send a small blanket that is clearly marked with the child’s name. These items are to be brought in on Monday and taken home to be laundered on Friday.

  5. Can my daughter bring her favorite toys with her to daycare?

    Children may not bring toys, food, or money into the center. Our toys and equipment have been carefully selected to provide a safe and stimulating environment, and they are shared by all children. We will have “Show and Tell” days when the children will be asked to share something special from home. Nutritious snacks and lunches are provided for all children so there will be no need for children to bring additional food into the center unless your child has special diet requirements.

  6. My son is vegetarian. Do you have vegetarian alternatives within your meal plan, or do I need to send all of his food from home?

    Please consult the weekly menus to determine if you will need to send a substitute meal from home.

  7. Do you enroll children on a part-time basis?

    No. Unfortunately, we are only able to enroll children on a full-time basis.

  8. Do all of the classes play together on the playground?

    The different age-groups play on the playground at different times.

  9. Is my child’s teacher available for babysitting on the weekends?

    Color Us Kids does not render child care services off its premises, except in the event of field trips that have been preauthorized by parents or guardians. Accordingly, if a parent or guardian arranges with a staff member for off-premises care of their child, the staff member undertakes such service on his/her own behalf and not as an employee of Color Us Kids. Color Us Kids staff members are selected and retained on the basis of their fitness for rendering child care services in a controlled and fully supervised child care program. Color Us Kids offers no assurance of the fitness of its staff members for performing these and other services in an environment that is not professionally supervised (such as transporting children or caring for them in the home) and none should be implied or inferred under any circumstances.

  10. Are parents informed when a child has been injured, however slight?

    Accident and injury forms are sent home the same day that an incident occurs.

  11. Does Color Us Kids participate in the CAPS program, which helps working families afford child care?

    Yes, Color Us Kids is proud to participate in the CAPS program. For more information, visit the Georgia DFCS website.

  12. Do you offer scholarships or sibling discounts?

    We offer $10 off the total tuition for multiple children.

  13. Can I bring my child in for a pre-enrollment visit?

    Yes, absolutely.

  14. My daughter is severely allergic to peanuts. How do you safeguard against exposure to food allergies?

    Food allergies are posted in the kitchen and in each child’s room. Such foods are never to be given under any circumstances.
