Dear Prospective Family,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Mt. Elizabeth Academy, where we place an emphasis on providing exceptional early childhood development and education in a loving and nurturing environment. Mt. Elizabeth Academy is a Quality Rated, family-owned Christian preschool, pre-k, and daycare; founded and operated by master educators in Kennesaw, Georgia. We offer discovery-based learning activities, sensory manipulatives, and developmental centers fully engage our students in learning and growth. In addition, we assess your child’s understanding and gently challenge them to continue through their next developmental phase, all in a fun and engaging play-based atmosphere.

In addition to being a mother of two, I’ve spent the last 25 years professionally involved in early learning; as a teacher, a principal and a mentor to developing teachers. I have spoken at workshops around the world and I am an early learning expert. I pride myself in staying up-to-date on the newest research in early learning education and child development. While developing and delivering outstanding programs and curriculum are passions, most importantly I love children. I support our families and I cultivate an atmosphere of nurturing, comfort and security.

Please make an appointment to come in for a tour. I look forward to showing you what a wonderful school and community we have.

Sincerely,
Ann Godley, B.A., M.Ed.

  • review rating 4  We only went to Mount Elizabeth for a few days due to proximity issues but from what I saw it was a nice school. Customer service is much better in person then on the phone but the teachers seem happy in their profession.

  • review rating 5  Oh where to start... So many great things about this school. First off, I checked out almost every single daycare/school in Kennesaw and some in Marietta. There are pros and cons to each school. I have to admit, Mt. Elizabeth may not have every single pro other schools can offer, but Mt.E provides my child a loving, safe, and educationally healthy environment. My son not only loves his primary teacher, but every teacher that comes into his classroom. He is a pretty shy boy, but has grown to be confident, smart, and socially well rounded. At 3 he came home already able to spell out the first letter of almost every word. I also noticed the way he plays with other kids has become considerate and respectful while expressing himself through conversation. I also have to note, my kid barely gets sick at this school! I honestly cannot remember a time he missed school because he was sick from coming to school. Besides all these, the main reason we came to Mt.E is because of my primary impression and connection with the owners Rob and Ann. They are so easy to talk to, actually genuine in their conversations, and considerate when discussing any matter regarding my son's care. They encourage teacher communication which shows they realize so much depends on the teacher/student/parent interactions. I have spent many afternoons at pick up talking to my son's teacher about his progress, any issues, or just about what we did over the weekend! I feel the owners encourage such an environment for this to take place and hires teachers with the same views (special shout out to Ms. Corinne!! Best teacher ever!) Thank you Ann, Rob, and all teachers and staff for making such a great place for these young ones to be!

  • review rating 5  Mt. Elizabeth Academy is EXCELLENT. The staff and center is caring, knowledgeable, professional and family oriented. The communication through out the center and home is exceptional. I couldn't imagine sending my infant and toddler anywhere else. The care they receive from all of the staff is the equivalent to a family member caring for my children.

  • review rating 5  We have absolutely loved our time with Mt. E. We wanted a place for our child that wasn't just a paid babysitter, but that took the time to educate and help her grow. Our child has attended since just after the school opened and in just two years, she has grown so much! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The costs are comparable to the area. Rob and Ann are wonderful directors. We love and trust Mt. E!!

  • review rating 5  As first time parents, it was very important to my husband and I that we found the best care possible for our child. Many hours of research and tours took place before Mt. Elizabeth and I was starting to feel like I had unrealistic expectations for childcare based on the outcomes of the other visits. After meeting with Ann and touring Mt. E I knew immediately they were the ones and my son has been attending the school since he was 8 months, this year he will be 3. He absolutely loves going to school and cries when it's time to leave! The teachers are warm and welcoming, they love him and he loves them. His learning and development has met and exceeded expectations and I absolutely love the fact that the school uses Brightwheel so I can see pictures and get updates throughout the day. Rob and Ann, you are genuine, caring, good people and God has blessed your school, we wish you continued successes and longevity! I could go on in this review but then it would become a small book. A big thank you to Ms. Cecile, Ms. Patricia, Ms.Terre, Ms. Dree, Ms. Shequila, and all of the other very talented and caring teachers at Mt.E that contribute their time and efforts to nurture and develop the young and impressionable minds of our precious children.

  • review rating 5  Mt. Elizabeth Academy has been a great place and opportunity for me to continue my education. As a toddler teacher, I enjoy being in the classroom planning activities and fun things for the children to do. I love what I do and I couldn't thank Mt. E and the directors Ann and Rob for helping me to make my dreams of having my own classroom and teaching come true. The environment is friendly, clean as well as healthy and other teachers help to make it possible. Parents are friendly and of course the children are little cuties soaking up the learning and love given each day. I really enjoy Mt. E and will continue to grow with them. SA

  • review rating 5  My daughter has been attending Mt. E since January 2018 and we feel so blessed to have found them! I don't know where to start. There are so many wonderful things to say! This facility has been a godsend to our family. Prior to finding Mt. E, we had a surgery scheduled for my daughter to have tubes put in. She was having earaches at least once a month and stayed sick all the time, from her previous daycare. We found Mt. E & decided to change her school first & then go from there. This was the best decision we EVER made!!! My daughter has only been sick TWICE in 17 months. And guess what, NO TUBES! NO SURGERY!!!! Ann & Rob are great! The staff is ALWAYS friendly. The children are always well behaved & I love the way the teachers direct them. I walk down the hallway each afternoon and hear bits and pieces from each class and I SMILE. Literally, I smile! It's so refreshing. The facility is always clean. You can always catch someone cleaning the floor or spraying the room with their amazing cleaning wand. The Brightwheel app is so nice and convenient. I love being able to see what my daughter is doing throughout the day and see pictures of her having a blast. My mother, who lives in a different state, has access to the app and it is so nice for her to be able to keep up with her as well. I could go on and on. There are so many wonderful things about this facility. I wish I could give you 10 stars! Thank you for all you do for our children. You are all appreciated!

  • review rating 5  We transitioned to Georgia a little over a year ago and knew no one. We started our little one off at a daycare we felt suitable. After a few months we weren't happy with it and started researching online. We came across Mt. Elizabeth Academy and after reading all that it had to offer I was sold before we even visited. We called and were able to meet same evening. They facility is beautiful, the atmosphere is so positive and energetic. The academic environment is well suited for each childs level of learning. The owners are very serious about giving the best positive childcare and education available. They are truly amazing and are easily available for any question, concern or even just a genuine conversation for no specific reason. I only wish I had found them first and had more time for my little one to have benefited from their education and childcare since she's ready to start kindergarten in the fall. I have no doubt that she will attend before and after school there in the fall. Also all school breaks and summer childcare as I trust she is in good hands and very happy there!

  • review rating 5  Mt.Elizabeth is absolutely phenomenal!! I had the great pleasure of working at Mt. Elizabeth as an assistant teacher. Rob and Ann from the beginning welcomed me like I was family and treated me with the utmost respect and kindness. You can tell they truly care about their staff, the kids, and their families. I loved working with all of the staff at Mt. Elizabeth and can only see good things in the future for this school. I'm praying for the continued success and highly recommend this academy to any parent in need of childcare; it's honestly one of the best around.
