Child Care

City Of Augusta Childcare

 The City of Augusta Child Care Bureau provides quality childcare in a safe environment for families and children enrolled. Through activities, we will involve, challenge, intrigue and assist children in ways that enhance their character and develop their minds and bodies.

The City of Augusta School Age Childcare Program operates with a philosophy of service to the children, parents and community. For children, the program offers a safe, supportive environment that encourages creativity and positive self-esteem. This is accomplished through wholesome and fun activities; including age appropriate education activities, arts and crafts, literacy activities, creative play, and nutritious snacks. For parents, the program offers affordable childcare with dependable scheduling and flexible enrollment policies. For the community, the program provides support for families of local business, social services, and school. 

City of Augusta Childcare offers School Year and Summer Camp care programs for children grades K through 6th. Childcare offers multiple care options.

City of Augusta Childcare's registration applications are submitted online through MyRec. This system also allows for you to make payments online at your convince and manage your child(ren)'s care accounts. To submit your registration, first you will need to create an account, if you do not already have one. Once that is set up, fill out a registration application for all children you wish to enroll. Setting up a MyRec account does NOT fully enroll your child in childcare. You will receive a confirmation from the office. Summer Camp is a separate program from School Year Care and registrations will need to be submitted when registration opens in the spring.
