Ivy Hall Day School Closing: Invitation to Families and Teachers

The closing of the Ivy Hall Day School in Kennesaw is an unexpected loss during this holiday season for the approximately 70 families and 20 teachers that were a part of that program.  Foundations School in Kennesaw would like to warmly welcome the Ivy Hall daycare families and teachers to come visit Foundations, located just about a mile down the road. Foundations provides child care for children six weeks old through preschool, as well as private Pre-K, private Kindergarten through 6th grade, and before and after-school transportation to and from Hayes Elementary school, with a fantastic and active after-school program.   Foundations is working hard to accommodate the Ivy Hall child care families and teachers displaced by this sudden closing announcement.  Foundations is committed to assisting families in finding ways to bridge the gap between the current rates at Ivy Hall school and Foundations School.  Foundations accepts CAPS funding, as well as funding for military families through Child Care Aware.  Foundations may also be able to help families find other scholarships as well.
