About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Columbus
Hello! My name is Ashley Holland and I would like to personally welcome you all to our wonderful preschool in Columbus, GA. I have over 15 years of experience in childcare, and worn many hats during that time! I have been in every age group, including several administrative positions. My goal as Director of Childcare Network #218 is to create an environment where children and staff are excited to come to school, and every parent knows their child is safe and well taken care of!
We are so proud to announce that we have been rated 2 Stars for Georgia's new quality program! We're excited to continue offering the Columbus families a reliable and safe environment for their children to learn and grow in. Our school strives for our families to receive support and understanding along their journey as well as form great connections between the children, families, teachers and the community.
Our Pre-K program is a lottery funded educational program for children residing in Georgia that have reached the age of four, in order to prepare them for Kindergarten. We accept children four years of age by September 1st of the current school year, who are Georgia residents. Therefore, the enrollment in the Georgia Pre-K program is entirely voluntary and there are no income eligibility requirements; however, it is provided on a first come, first serve basis.
In addition, we offer a Young Achievers Program for school age children during the school year for before and after school, teacher workdays and holidays. Then during the summer break, we offer our Adventure Summer Camp program which operates on a full day schedule.
Come visit us here at our school, tour the classrooms and meet the outstanding staff. We are looking forward to meeting your family soon!
