FAQs

What are the Child Development Center hours of operations?
The Child Development Center is open from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm, Monday – Friday. It is a year-round program and is only closed for major holidays and for teacher training days. For elementary school-aged children enrolled in the After School Hut program, the hours are 2:30 pm – 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday during the school year and 7:30 am – 6:00 pm during the summer. The Child Development Center offers full Hut days on many of the Atlanta Public School holidays.

Do you offer carpool?
Haygood Child Development Center does not offer carpool, however we do have a drive-up lane that is available during specific times for short visits, during the morning and afternoon. The carpool lane is NOT available from 8:45 am – 9:15 am and from 12:45 am – 1:15 pm, Monday through Friday. This is when the Preschool is running their carpool sessions. Parents are required to sign their children in and out each day, therefore you must drop off and pick up from the classroom each morning and evening.

When should I apply for admission to the Child Development Center?
Registration is open beginning December 15th, 2016.  Applications for the program may be submitted during this registration period. Tours are scheduled throughout the year, by appointment only. The Child Development Center does not maintain rolling admissions from the previous school year, so each family must re-apply each year. Families are notified by the director when a space becomes available for your child.

In addition to language, what other enrichment are offered?
Along with Spanish, offered to children age 3 and older, the Child Development Center also offers Music to all the children who attend the Child Development Center.
