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.

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  I’ve had the pleasure of working at Mt. Elizabeth Academy for six months now. For the first time in ten years, I can honestly say that I look forward to coming to work everyday. Ann and Rob are two of the most genuine, caring, and respectful people for whom I have worked. Their extended background in education and love of children shines throughout the school. Many a time I’ve seen Ann in the classroom, on the floor, with children piled in her lap, while she reads to them and plays with them. They truly care about each and every child and their staff. They go above and beyond to make certain that every classroom is equipped with all the things a child and teacher could possibly need to foster fun learning and ensure safety. When I chose Mt. Elizabeth as my home away from home, I was not only choosing for myself, but for my son as well. His health and well-being comes first and I couldn’t imagine him being happier anywhere else.

  • 5 star review  Our 1 year old son has been at Mt. Elizabeth Academy since he was around 12 weeks old and we could not be happier with our experience. The teachers and staff are wonderful, the leadership team is involved and communicative, the facility is clean and cheerful, and our son is happy and thriving. We are so grateful for Mt. Elizabeth Academy. (Special thanks to Ms. Cecile, Ms. Patricia, Ms. Anita, and the assistant teachers for their hard work and dedication!)

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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!!

  • 4 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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.
