Kidsí Advocacy Coalition

After-School Program


What is KAC?

Kidsí Advocacy 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?

The KAC 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?

Students are 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 the after school program, children have the opportunity to try out problem solving skills and to further develop socialization skills.  Above all, the after school program is a place to have fun and relax after a hard dayís work at school!!


                    How do I obtain more information?

The KAC office is located at 1402 Newton Drive, next to G.O.Bailey Primary School.  We are open from 830 a.m. to 5 p.m. to provide you with any additional information concerning our after-school program.
