    Hi Everyone,
    I am totally new to this Alpharetta Area, We moved from Boston recently. Wondering if you all would be kind enough to suggest me some good Montessori / Preschools in and around This area. I live in an apartment in Windward Parkway. Any information is really appreciated. I feel very very lonely without people around.
    Regards,
    Swarna

    swarna,

    Google it for

    Preston Ridge Montessori
    Windward Academy
    Primrose schools.

    Also in GA,the pre-k program is mostly GA lottery funded and most of the day cares would have that program.I am not sure,how old is your kid though.
    Apparently Windward Parkway is a good indian comminity place and also,you would find lot of good day cares around it and it's not an issue at all.
    I think ,if you can google on the ZIPCODE,You would fine it.

    Whatever the day care you found in your place,should be good.Because it's a prime place.

    Thank you so much Priya. I did went on a tour to Preston Ridge Montessorie, School environment was perfect , I like it. Only thing I did not like the the students to teacher's ratio. There was 27 kids in one class with one prime teacher and an assistant. So roughly 1:13, no sure how good they will be able to concentrate on kids.
    I will go and take a look at Windward Academy and Primrose school also. Once again. Thanks!!

    Hi Swarna,

    Was nice to see that you already had a post to enquire about montesorri schools. I move to Alpharetta a week ago. I have a 2 and half year old kid and want to look out for some good Montessori / Preschools in and around Apharetta.

    Hopefully you should have found a school by now. Can you share any details/information with me. It would be really helpful.

    I too live in an apartment in Windward Parkway.

    I am still in the hunt. I am looking for AMI affilated schools and montesorri certified teachers and I did find 3 in and Around Alpharetta(basically which is near to my place)

    Red Apple Montesorri
    Christian School of Montesorri
    CrabApple Montesorri

    I would have to decide which would be best suit my kid.

    Hope this info helps. Let me also know if you found something.

    I know this post is a litle late, but my daughter (3) has been going to Children Today Montessori on Jones Bridge Road for a year now and she absolutely loves it. I would recommend that school in a heartbeat...

    @rswarna , how old was your kid when she joined Montessori ? Do they have to be potty trained or do they take care?
