My family and I are "possibly" moving to the Atlanta area, it would be great to get some feedback from families that have children about the best daycares, and the best private schools from pre-k until 12th grade?

The area's for right now are open, since we are still looking into that too what area to live (possibly a new thread for this topic).

Any feedback would greatly be appreciated!

It would really depend on where you chose to live which should be based on where you'd be working. The metro area is very large so it is hard to give advice without specifics.

I understand the need to pin point an area, first, BUT just forgetting a "specific" area, and just advising what daycare's you think are best in the Atlanta area would be helpful. We are trying to avoid the cookie-cutter charter daycares.

Thank you!!

My nephew went to the Suzuki School, it is expensive but they teach different languages and he did well there. It is among the best. To find more ratings including pediatricians, etc. I would encourage you to look at the Atlanta Magazine website and find old issues for those ratings. My sister went through all of that before she chose his pediatrician, daycare/preschool, etc.

But, given the traffic that we have in the city, it would be wise to mention what area you are in. Because what is the point of sending a child to a great school if it takes you two hours each way to get there?

Money, location no object...

Suzuki > Westminster or Marist or Lovett.

I know a lot of people that went to each. Marist would probably be my preference if we were to send our kids to private school, but not likely that we will. Just don't see the cost benefit when weighed against the area's top public schools.

We just moved away from Atlanta to NJ, and one of the hardest people to say good bye to was our pediatrician. The practice is called Sandy Springs Pediatrics and they are located across the street from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta/Scottish Rite near Northside Hospital.

Our doctor was Dr. Balcarek, but I found all the female physicians to be great, as well as most of the males.

Thank you for all of your input, it's greatly appreciated!

Sorry, the reason i did not mention area, was because we are still shopping around for that right now, and it would help to see what are the best daycares to look out for.

So, thank you once again, everyone!!

Daycare is only a short time when compared to K-12. I would look at job location first, then schools. Do you have a child with a chronic or significant illness needing specialized care? If so, I would suggest looking at the Children's Hospitals in the area and their affiliated physicians.

To answer your question about daycare, we use Primrose School of Dunwoody and absolutely love it. Primrose has other locations around ATL, so check out their website. It's on the high end of the price range but we feel it's well worth it for the care and attention our 10-month old daughter receives.

Cooper Pediatrics on Howell Ferry Rd.

My children have been going for years since my oldest was 5 and the other two since they were born. I LOVE them.
Best perk~~ They are open amazing hours (till 7 most nights) and fit patients in like no other.
