In August 2010, the CDA launched Kids Express, a drop-in early learning center in the North Fulton Service Center in Sandy Springs. Youngsters play and learn with CDA teachers in an enriched learning environment, while their parents avail themselves of government services at the Grady Clinic, WIC office, Workforce Development, and other agencies located in the Center.
In June 2012 a second Kids Express location opened at the new Adamsville Regional Health Center—also in partnership with Fulton County. For many low-income parents, Kids Express is their first exposure to a high quality early learning environment with qualified teachers, so we are delighted to bring this program to Adamsville. At both locations we use Kids Express as a platform to educate parents about early literacy and school readiness.
Kids Express serves about 2,500 children each year.
