ALL-INCLUSIVE BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL CARE AVAILABLE
We want to ensure that GA Pre-K parents are aware that the GA Pre-K program follows the Paulding County School calendar. This means that the GA Pre-K program is closed during five (5) weeks of holiday breaks, four (4) scheduled off days, and thirteen (13) early release days.
If you need care for those 42 days during the school year, Noah’s Ark Christian Academy (known as NACA) has an all-inclusive Before/After School Enrichment program which allows your child to come before school as early as 6:00 am, stay after school until 6:30 pm and provides all daycare in a ‘camp’ experience for those long school break weeks. The weekly tuition is $79.00 and annual registration fee of $75.00. If you are interested in taking advantage of this program, contact Ms. Lindsay for registration.
