The Emory WorkLife Resource Center announces new centers joining the the Emory Child Care Network this fall.

 

 

Knowledge Universe manages the employee discounts/benefits for KinderCare and the Windward Child Development Center. KinderCare has over 27 locations in the Greater Atlanta area and the Windward Child Development Center is conveniently located in Alpharetta, GA next to ADP. All centers offer full and part time infant and toddler care, preschool, before and after school care, school closing care, summer and school break camp, and drop-in on a space available basis for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years.
Each day KinderCare uses the educational power of play to grow your child socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually—all while having fun.

 

All faculty, staff, employees, and graduate students are eligible for 10% tuition savings on all programs. Please visit www.kubusinesssolutions.com/emory to find a location near your home of office. You can also call 877-914-7683.

 

 

The Frazer Center is a NAEYC-Accredited early education program like no other in metro Atlanta. With credentialed and loving teachers, the nationally-acclaimed learn-through-play Creative Curriculum, an inclusive philosophy that brings together children with and without disabilities, and a stunning campus nestled in an urban forest, Frazer truly is a magical place for children to play, learn, and grow.

 

Approximately 70% of Frazer's 189 children (ages 6 weeks to 5 years old) are typically developing, and 30% have a diagnosed special need or are at-risk for developmental delay. With an Inclusion Specialist on staff and staff-to-child ratios that exceed NAEYC standards, children with special needs are fully included with their peers. All the children at Frazer benefit from this inclusive setting, developing into compassionate people and creative problem solvers. Children also broaden their world view by interacting with volunteers from Frazer's program for adults with developmental disabilities.

 

A full-time school nurse, specially trained language and literacy coaches, weekly instruction in Spanish and sign language, after school programs like Club SciKids and Drama Kids, gardening, enrichment activities like music therapy, pet therapy, Mandarin Chinese, dance, and sports, and a nutritious meal program keep children healthy, happy, and inspired. Parents love Continuity of Care at Frazer, where young children have the same teacher and playmates for three years. Parents also love the online portal that keeps them abreast of their children's progress using research-based developmental assessments.

 

The Frazer Center is located just a few minutes from the Emory campus in the Druid Hills neighborhood. To schedule a visit, call 404-377-3836 or email Ashli Washington at a.washington@frazercenter.org.
