What is KAC?
Coalition (KAC) in Tifton is a non-profit agency offering safe,
affordable, high quality care for children of parents who are
working or are in school or job training. KAC serves between
300-350 children per school year.
Where and when is this care offered?
After-School Program is held at Annie Belle Clark, G. O. Bailey, J.
T. Reddick, Len Lastinger, Northside, Omega and the Tift County
Pre-K Center. Students from Matt Wilson and Charles Spencer are
transported to J. T. Reddick. The program begins as soon as
students are dismissed from school and runs until 6:00 on all full
day school days.
**KAC is unable to offer after school care on early
release days and holidays.
How much does this program cost?
The cost per
week is $32 for students who are picked up by 4:45 and $40 for
students who remain after 4:45. KAC offers a discount for each
additional child in the same family. A $40 registration fee per
child is required. Any family for whom these fees present a
hardship are encouraged to apply to the Department of Family and
Children Services (DFCS), located on 2nd Street, for
child care subsidies. If you feel you qualify for fee support and
are determined ineligible for DFCS subsidies, please contact the KAC
office or your lead teacher for reduced rate applications.
What activities will my child participate?
given an opportunity to complete homework. Help is given when
requested. Opportunity is provided for students to choose to
participate in outdoor activities, games, toys, arts and crafts,
reading, selected videos, drama, and just visiting with friends. In
