  • We were very happy with this school. My 3 yr old son enjoyed going to school everyday. He attended this school for about a 1 1/2. I would recommend this school to friends & family. The teachers are caring and attentive to both children & parents. They have a great summer camp for older children.

  • The staff was kind and patient, and truly seemed to care about the well-being and development of the children in their care. The facility was clean, well-equipped, and had a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The daily activities were well-planned and provided a good balance of educational and fun experiences. Overall, I highly recommend the Mt. Elizabeth to anyone in need of top-quality care for their child.

  • I cannot recommend Mt. Elizabeth enough! The teachers are fantastic. The staff goes above and beyond. This was our third daycare experience (due to moving.) Mt. Elizabeth far exceeded expectations! It is a family feel and I truly felt the teachers loved my son!

  • I cannot express how much this school means to our family. I have seen my daughter flourish emotionally, socially and academically. This program is a social and academic based program. So even though my daughter has a late September birthday they placed her where she needed to be. They observed her with children she'd be with if they placed them in classes based off Cobb K-12 guidelines. After a few weeks of observation they moved her up to the next class. She absolutely loves it! She's learning so much, has made many friends and I often hear her singing 'Jesus Loves Me' and other songs while playing. They use the Brightwheel App as of now, which I love. I get pictures and videos throughout the day along with updates on food, naps, etc. Anywho - Great Program - Great Staff - My child is truly loved - Clean - Organized - Secure

  • As Safe As Mommy’s Arms @ Home: Mt. Elizabeth Academy is like an extended family outside the home for our child. The rules tend to flow naturally, to provide the sense of order and cleanliness that younglings require. Accommodations are made for individual needs every day, such as fancy spring water from home if you wish to provide it. There are comfortable, colorful uniform options available for all. At the toddler age in Room G, we parents do not necessarily aim for any achievements - however, I have witnessed my child express independence in a short amount of time since enrollment, choosing to feed herself rather than continue the silver spoon-feeding as before. Staff fluctuations and swaps are common, so that our child is met with more caretakers during the week. This is not exactly what she likes, so there are days when she would rather have Ms. Sam and Ms. Nancy in the classroom - and she cries for them. They are the sweetest, most gentle teachers I have had the delight to meet. Others are nice as well, and they all paint a well-rounded picture of our society today. Diversity is a strength that this school encourages, with a strong emphasis on literacy and social skills. Art and music also present in the classroom, so our best efforts at home do get mirrored at school, with heartwarming effects on the mood swings that our child boasts. She is confident to express herself in all ways, loud and quiet. There are school events and fun things to do every week, and we get pictures by BrightWheel. We will soon be relocating to another country, and I feel that the experience we gained at Mt. Elizabeth is going to be very valuable going forward. Thank you for your loving discipline and expert care that you provide, Mt. Elizabeth teachers and staff!

  • 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.

  • We absolutely loved our time at Mt Elizabeth and only left because of an out of state move. Two of my daughters attended; one in the pre-k program and one in the infant class and moved up into the toddler levels. They both loved their teachers and all the staff knew them both by name, always smiling and greeting us in the hallway. They both learned so much and really grew a lot developmentally and academically. We will always fondly remember our time at Mt Elizabeth and the wonderful people who took such a great care of our babies!!

  • 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 (:
