The amazing teachers made sure my daughter transitioned from home to daycare smoothly and their interactive parent-teacher app keeps you updated with pictures , incident reports and more ! The owners are very welcoming and helpful when you have any questions or need assistance. I’m so glad i chose Mt. Elizabeth for my daughter !

  • 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

  • Mt. Elizabeth Academy is a GREAT school, and like any other facility it has it's pros & cons. However, from a personal experience there are more pros which contributes to the progression of the school. I worked as the private pre-k teacher (over a year ago), and was one of the 1st hires. Unfortunately, personal issues took place in my life that affected my passion in teaching, along with the high potential the directors saw in me when I was first hired. One thing I could never do is speak badly about Ann & Rob because they were always concerned, encouraging, and doing their best to maintain a school of excellence. I thank them for their honesty, and for doing what they felt was best to do for the success of the class, although I felt it was personal and unfair at the time. Mt. E was indeed my stepping stone for growth and opportunity, and if it had not been for the honest wake-up call the Godley's gave me, I wouldn't be where I am now, back in the classroom, teaching passionately with much more to offer my elementary students. * I HIGHLY recommend MT.E for parents looking for an amazing school to place their child(ren) and/or those looking for a great place to work with a passion & love for children.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • I did so much research before I placed 2 of my children in daycare/school. Its been a year and i can truthfully say Mt E did not disappoint. Right from management the directors and the teachers are caring commited individuals and do so many different things and activities for the kids. The place is happy and bubbly, the hallways are so pretty with decoarated classroom doors that change with seasons/months...there's lots of variety throughout the day music, Spanish, they encourage reading time even for littles who cannot read which is so essential, my little girl will pick up a book and comb through the pages just like she were reading words. They have arts and crafts and play outside in designated well equipped playgrounds (even water fun days in the summer) and for bad weather days they have a large equipped room for the kids to run and play. Lastly i want to mention that they post loads of pics thtough the day so you are part of the daily happenings. Food is prepared and provided too for each child with the option of bfast. I can go on and on but i wanted to let moms in the area know about this gem 💎 of a place that does so much for my kids.

  • I could not be happier that my husband and I decided to change daycares and start bringing our children to Mt. Elizabeth. In this crazy, uncertain time, it is so hard to know if we are making the right decisions for our children, but I am confident this was a great choice for our family. We can’t take our children many places these days to protect their health, so I am so happy they can socialize and participate in new and varied activities here. I am impressed with the precautions the school is taking to keep the kids and staff safe. I love how they communicate frequently through the Brightwheel app, including lots of pictures so I can see my children enjoying themselves and talk to them about their days when they get home. The teachers are so kind and loving with the kids and my older child practically runs into the school every morning. This school, the teachers and staff have been a blessing to our family, and I sincerely appreciate the care and education they provide!

  • Robert & Ann, I just want to say "thank you" to both of you and Mrs. Cecile for your time, patience, nurturing, and oversight of our Andrew (and this very nervous & new first time mom). As new parents we were extremely concerned about where we would place our little one for care. Mt. Elizabeth was our first stop but we toured and looked into other facilities as well. However, we were so impressed with our initial time at Mt. Elizabeth that we would often compare our experience to our time with you all - there was no match. From the moment we met all of you we have felt welcomed and cared for. To know that our son is receiving a well-thought out curriculum while being embraced by Christian values and beliefs is so comforting. Mrs. Cecile, thank you so much for all that you do to communicate with us and keep us updated! You made our first week wonderful. Your patience, guidance, and understanding are unmatched. You are a gem and we appreciate your care of our little Andrew. Thank you all for your authenticity, your genuine care, and everything you do. Last week you unknowingly reminded and confirmed for us why we chose Mt. Elizabeth.

  • CANNOT RECOMMEND MT. ELIZABETH ENOUGH We started our son at Mt. Elizabeth almost a year ago in toddler 1 and I cannot be happier with our choice to do so. Every member of the staff is attentive, patient and kind with our son (as I know they are with all the students). The facility is clean, the lunch is healthy, they lay out a daily schedule so we know exactly what his day looks like, and they really do teach him so much. I'm not sure what we would do without Mt. Elizabeth or how we ever lived without them. They give us so much peace of mind, and they give our son a home away from home. A special shout out to his primary teacher Ms. Molly, as much as we love her, our son loves her even more (:
