Kindergarten & Distanced Learning Program for Elementary Students
Kids’ Zone is excited to offer an in-person, full-time Kindergarten program and Supervised Distance Learning (SDL) program for Grades 1 and higher, starting August 17 from 7am – 5pm Monday through Friday. The program includes all meals (breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack) and After School care. We will offer traditional camps when Cobb County Schools are out of session (such as fall break).
Below are our options for Kindergarden and Elementary School Learning
We are pleased to announce that we will offer in-person Kindergarten classes to replace virtual learning for students. This will help them transition from Pre-K while making learning more effective. Teaching times will follow the school system’s schedule which run from 8am to 2:30pm, with before- and after-care included in the tuition fee.
Tuition for Kindergarten will be $225/week.
Supervised Distance Learning
For grades 1 and higher, we will provide virtual learning assistance during scheduled learning hours as prescribed by the school system followed by after-school care. Your child will need to bring a laptop or tablet and headphones to engage in the virtual lessons. We will provide wireless internet access.
Tuition for SDL will be $215/week.
Staff for Supervised Distance Learning
Full time supervisors will provide virtual learning assistance and enrichment activities for the students. Our capable staff will keep your child safe and make sure he/she is fully participating in their virtual learning school day. There will be one mentor per classroom.
The staff will:
- Ensure that students log-on and participate in their virtual classes
- Check the students’ classwork and homework for completion and errors
- Guide the students in various enrichment activities such as art and science
- Supervise the students during recreational/playtime.
The mentors will not communicate directly with your child’s teacher, schedule parent-teacher conferences, or facilitate home projects.
We will follow the school system’s guidelines once it is made available.
Communication with School Teachers
Please ask your child’s teacher to include this email on any classroom communication: firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help us stay informed of what is going on in the students’ virtual classrooms.
Due to safety concerns we will not permit any third-party vendor to conduct activities on-site nor will we conduct any field trips.

Cobb County has extended their virtual learning for the first 90 days of the school year. If Cobb or Fulton County returns to in-person instruction during the fall semester, we will continue to offer SDL for our students if you choose, as long as we have a minimum number of students for a class.
Withdrawal from the Program
Kids’ Zone requires a 14-day written withdrawal notice to leave the program.
If you wish to only join us for camp when Cobb County Schools are out of session (Fall break, Winter Break, etc.), the cost will be $65/day or $215/week. Information for these holiday camps will go out the month before each camp.
