  • I can't say enough great things about Mt. Elizabeth! As a first time mom, it was definitely a big decision. I had my child at home for three years. Our childcare at home changed right during the pandemic and we had to choose childcare fairly quickly. From my first phone call with Mrs. Ann, the Owner and my first tour, I knew I'd found the right place for my child and us (the parents)! She answered all of my questions and was so helpful. They were warm welcoming, and continue to know what works for my daughter, and I love that they know all of the details about each child to make their experience the best for them! I love my child's teacher and the staff is always kind and helpful! In these times, it's good to know your baby/child is in loving and caring hands!

  • 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’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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • We have loved having our son in the infant room at Mt. Elizabeth! We love Ms. Cécile, Ms. Kibibi, and the entire staff. I always feel that they truly care, keep us updated throughout the day, and do everything possible for a safe and fun learning environment.

  • We started our 8 week old baby at Mt. E and loved every second of her there. The Brightwheel app they use keeps you updated with pictures, diaper changes, and everything your child does throughout the day to keep your mind at ease. They taught our 1 year old sign language and provide Spanish classes to keep our daughter learning. The entire Mt. E staff takes care of our children as their own. HIGHLY RECOMMEND SEND YOUR KIDS HERE.

  • Both of my children attended Mt. Elizabeth- my son from 18mo - 3.5 years and my daughter from 12 weeks - 18 months. The day we had to leave was the saddest - we moved out of state and I wish we could have moved everyone at Mt. Elizabeth with us!! My kids both thrived from the intimate class sizes and age appropriate curriculum. Every staff member knew and loved both of my kids. This facility takes childcare, education, cleanliness and security seriously!
