Over the past 6 years my 3 children (8,5 and 2) have been instilled with good values, a love for learning and have made many friendships all guided by the wonderful and caring teachers at AFUMC.

Both my sons have attended Kids R Kids Alpharetta since they were infants. I love the staff and the directors are wonderful. The educational focus and acute attention to each child's needs speaks volumes for their dedication to excellence. Teachers are patient and kind, but firm when there's a need. In the last 6 years, I've seen many different situations - unruly children, children with special needs, emergencies - and they've all been handled with grace and dignity for the families involved. This is a wonderful school!

My 3 children have attended the MMO and Preschool programs at Alpharetta First United Methodist. They have established a lifetime of learning and a love for God in my children. All the teachers are so great also. This is a wonderful, loving school.

We love Kids R Kids Alpharetta (#28). The staff is well trained and very attentive to our needs and our son's needs. Love the sign language program they have for babies and toddlers!

My daughter was in the MMO and preschool programs at AFUM for four years. We were so happy with the quality of education and the loving and nurturing staff the preschool provides. When Kate graduated, we knew that she had a solid foundation in her education, social skills and faith. It made starting kindergarten an easy transition.

Kids R Kids of Alpharetta: Notihng to complain about this location. The staff always greet you with a huge smile on their face, no matter what time of the day you visit! Everyone here makes you feel so welcome and comfortable. You can talk to them just about any concerns you have about your kids. My 3 kids absolutely love being there ALL day! I love the fact that even infants gets fresh air every day! =) My oldest one, who's in their afterschool program, always gets his homework completed. They have very reliable, educated, and friendly teachers there.

The teachers at Alpharetta First United Methodist Preschool & Kindergarten are SO committed to providing a foundation for children to love learning and to love Christ. It is a joy to be a part of the AFUM P & K family!

My 2 year old is very shy and introvert child. I was realy hesitant to start preschool...but for my surprise she is doing exceptionaly well at AFUMC. MMO provides a very good start for toddlers. She loves her teachers. We are very glad that we made the right choice.

This was a great program for my daughter. They've recently added more brand new classrooms and are about to redo their existing playground plus add a new playground that is handicapped accessible.

We are so happy to have found AFUMC's preschool. Our son LOVES school and the entire staff is simply incredible. He is receiving such a wonderfully well-rounded education. Strong academics, social skills, and a love of God are just a few of the things this school offers its students. We could not ask for more and are very much looking forward to our younger son starting MMO in the fall.

AFUMC is amazing. I never knew learning could be so much fun. Both my boys went to afumc and had the best time. The teachers are wonderful and so loving. What a gift from God this school is.

Children's Cottage Montessori has allowed my sons to learn at their own pace and wow have they learned. Each child is treated as a gift and an individual. They making learning so much fun.

Our daughter goes to AFUMC Preschool. The teachers here are really making life at school both educational and enjoyable. Being a Church-centered foundation, children are taught their ABC's and 123's along with the important aspects in life like sharing, caring, loving, and giving. I am happy I chose this school for my baby and will definitely suggest it for anyone else out there. AFUMC Preschool ROCKS!!!!!!

Our daughter goes to AFUMC-P. Our little one loves to go to school so much that she asks us if she doesn't have school even on the weekends. We are really happy to see her enjoy going to school as well as learning a lot of things at school. The teachers here provide an excellent atmosphere for all the kids to learn as well as to grow as good human beings and that we feel is the most essential thing a child needs in the starting stages of his/her life. AFUMC-P is undoubtedly our first and best choice when it comes to preschool. Cheers

My daughter attends AFUMC 3 year old Preschool and her teachers are phenomenal! They inspire and guide the children's learning and have such a wonderful way with parents and families. The classroom environment is nurturing, loving, and filled with humor and fun. They are cultivating my daughter's natural enthusiasm and fostering her love of learning. They are building a secure and stable foundation for a lifetime of learning. I could ask for a better experience for my daughter or our family. I cannot wait for my son to begin the program next year!

My 4 year old is in AFUMC Preschool. The teachers are very loving and caring and my son has just thrived in the past year. The management is very good too. They are very organized and have tons of activities for kids. My son wants to go to school even during the weekends. I am so glad i chose this school.

My son was changed in only 2 weeks at Children's Cottage Montessouri Preschool. He was potty trained in about a month. I love the student to teacher ratio, the organizational skills they teach, and little sports program. The best thing is that it's a price that we can afford, and don't mind paying.

Since the fall of 2004, my four children have attended Alpharetta Christian Academy. Throughout the years, my children have had a wonderful and loving relationship with their teachers. The staff makes the preschool such a warm, safe and loving environmen. And most importantly teaches the children about the love of God. We are blessed to be a part of the ACA family.

I have had my sons here since 2004, from Pampers to Day Camp. This is truly the best place for your children. The staff is the best and the field trips are AWESOME. " I wanna be a KIDS R KIDS#28" KID

Most of these are day cares! The best preschool in Alpharetta is by far McGinnis Woods Country Day School.

We have had children at St. Thomas Aquinas Preschool and love it! The families are so welcoming and the staff is loving and dedicated! Katerina

Our third child is at St. Thomas Aquinas Preschool and we are thrilled with the attention he receives. Recommend the preschool to everyone who is looking for a quality program. The level of education and attention to detail is outstanding in every class! As a parent who has had children in sta for over 7 yrs, I am beyond thrilled with the school, the director and the teachers.
Jen March 28, 2012 at 11:23 PM
My daughter has attended St. Thomas Aquinas Preschool for the past 3 years. She has thrived socially, as well as "academically." Not only does she have amazing classroom teachers, the kids also attend Bible Buddies, Movement and Spanish classes each week. She always comes home happily chattering about her day!
Jennifer Gallagher March 30, 2012 at 12:52 PM
St. Thomas Aquinas is an amazing preschool. The director, the staff & teachers are all so very warm & welcoming & loving. Our family has been a part of this school for 9 years & we will be there for another 3 years, as well.
