I liked First Pres. Pardon for the barge. If you are going to be in Druid Hills (did I read that right?) you should check out International Preschools (International Preschools: Growing the Future). This place is nothing short of amazing. I am going to the one in Buckhead which has a slightly different name but same curriculum (has flexible hours as well). I have never seen anything like this school and am really excited. Good luck! Would be happy to give you any info on the schools.

How about Atlanta International or Holy Innocents and all those big church pre-schools?

Amazing program in Virginia Highlands. Opening one in Morningside (near Ansley - where the little Jumping Bean is) because they were running with 200 ppl on the waitlist. I am going to their Buckhead location next year (which is a full day as well as a preschool option).

It teaches to every type of learner and is spectacular. I like Montessori, Reggio and all of those preschool teaching methods but they were created a long time ago and most have not been updated for our changing times. Kids need to learn certain things before the age of five (new research - check out Nurture Shock and the Global Achievement Gap). IPS has an amazing curriculum that covers every style of learning. Art, music and gym every day because some kids learn through movement, some learn through art, some learn through music. Add in foreign languages and you build pathways in the brain that will stay with them later so that languages are easier to learn. The entire school is activity based rather than play based so the kids are doing things, learning things but it feels like they are having fun. Another benefit is that they provide lunch! No additional "lunch bunch". I just love it and shout it from the rooftops.

You are coming to the game a little late but sometimes there are openings. I highly recommend that you check out IPS as the new location was announced about 2 months ago. They are likely to have some space.

HA! I just realized I already wrote to you but thought I'd chime in again. I'm their biggest cheerleader. I also love a few other schools but we chose this one because of the languages and learning approach.

I don't know what we will do when we hit 1st grade though. Not happy with our elementary. I need advice on private and best public. I love Sarah Smith but we are not zoned for that one. Darn.

There a few good schools for language based learning disabilities (dyslexia)...Schenck, Wardlaw School (see Atlanta Speech School). I think mostly they start in Kindergarten but I am not quite sure.

If you need state funded preschool, unless you qualify for Head Start, you will most likely need to contact your local school system. In which school system, do you live? Is you child 3 yet (or when will he/she turn three?

we are looking for our new home to be in most likely North Druid Hills or Decatur area but before we make the move we want to make sure local school district offers head start. Yes my kid is 3 already and attending a pre-school that offers EIP (early intervention). Thanks for your replies.

Oh, just head over to Epworth Day School in Candler Park, Atlanta's cutest historic neighborhood. The little preschool is in a historic church that sits directly across from the neighborhood park/playground/golf course. It's an old-fashioned little play-based preschool with a huge outdoor classroom. The preschool exists to help out the neighborhood and tuition averages ~$270 a month - you won't find that anywhere!! The teachers are like out of a dream - it is too cute for words and it is by far the friendliest, most open preschool in town. You will be immediate best friends with the director and the parents will make you part of their family right away. There is no elitism here and the tuition can only be described as 'friendly,' just like the people! I think it's Epworth Day School - Here we grow!, but you can search for it on google!
