Great school / day care! Our daughter has attended PPA since February 2012, when she was 10 weeks old. We love her teachers, and know they love our little girl, too. They really invest time and attention with each child. PPA is very clean,

She loves it! Our daughter started here at 3months and now 2years later she wakes up every day wanting to go to "school"! She has grown up with the teachers and her friends and they all know her and greet her each day. We wouldn't have it

We started our son at this school when he was 9 months old and absolutely love this place! You can tell the teachers love the children and vice a versa. Same with the administrators. The price paid is well worth the piece of mind

We appreciate all feedback. Primary Prep Academy has undergone major improvements and the school is on its way up! Our owners have invested thousands of dollars on new equipment and training for the teachers. We have a new director who has over 20 years of education experience. Just under six months, the director has increased enrollment by 50 children. Our teachers are very happy and the children are as well. We are also in the process of achieving NAEYC accreditation. We hope that you stop by and see the new and improved Primary Prep Academy!!!

I've have two children at this school now for 1 year and I feel they haven't learned nearly as much as my neighbors kids, who attend another school. I am making plans to move them out soon. Aside from that, there is alot of hot potato

I have had three children attend Primary Prep Academy. The teachers here are great. They truly love what they do and it shows with the way they interact with the children. During my children??s time there, they learned so much. There was some turnover; however, they always replaced the ones going out with even better ones coming in. They really seem to have it down. The school is clean and in good repair. They are constantly adding new materials to the classrooms and have done some fantastic upgrades. The owners have the mentality of reinvesting into their school. They also have internet cameras in every classroom so I could see what my children were doing throughout the day. Grandma in New York loved it as well because she did not get to see them often. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to others! You will not regret it!

I love this school! I am so pleased with the care my child receives at Primary Prep. Every day I know I can drop him off and he is going to be loved. Financially, I am unable to stay at home with him, so this is the next best thing. I would definitely check them out if you are looking for a loving educational preschool for your child.

I currently have two daughters at Primary Prep. The teachers here are so friendly and seem to always go the extra mile to help me and my family. I am very impressed with the response time when I have any questions or concerns. There is no feeling like being able to drop off your children and not have to worry about them for the day because you know they are in a safe place.

It is so unfortunate how such once a lovely school can turn into such a sad dirty place. The staff turn over is unbelievable and I am disgusted my the school's cleanliness. So sad.

The facility is beautiful but this is its only draw. The administration does not respond to concerns and does not return phone calls. They specifically disregard parent instructions and requests. They do whatever they want, including raise the tuition to astronomical rates in a bad economy and they don't care what your input is. They claim they have purchased a fancy curriculum but they clearly don't implement. Your money and kid are probably better off somewhere else!

Not a very good experience. The administration used to be great, but things are totally different and I wouldn't recommend the school to anyone.
Some of the teachers have bad attitudes and are not very patient with the children.

We were one of the first families to enroll at Primary Prep when they first opened, and were thrilled when their brand new facilty went up around the corner from our home in Marietta. Amost two years later, we decided to move from the 'burbs -- back to the city. I can honestly say that the daycare was the only aspect of the move that was unsettling and sad. The facility itself has a sophisticated check-in/out security system and constant internet monitoring (so you can check on your children at your conveniece). There was almost no lead teacher turnover during our time there, which I've come to appreciate even more after moving our children to their new daycare. Furthermore, our child was much more academically challenged at Primary Prep than he is at our current daycare -- and we paid significantly less at Primary Prep! Each classroom has its own age-appropriate playground, and the facility has an on-site pool for summer swim lessons and play (with a lifeguard, of course). I also was not asked to do constant fundraising or asked to participate in after-hours "support work" on behalf of the facility (like the "playground construction days" or "Silent Auctions" at our current daycare). Primary Prep is also women-owned and operated (by three sisters, their mother, and grandmother). I felt this dynamic positively affected the overall sense of "family" that we experienced -- and contributed to how much our son loved going to school. What is unique about Primary Prep is that the facility and curriculum are top-notch and contemporary -- but they still manage to create a supportive and intimate environment of care. Our son still talks about his old teacher (who babysits on occasion) and we realize that it set a high standard of expectation for us as parents & daycare consumers. In short, if the commute to Primary Prep wasn't an hour away from our new jobs/home, we would go back in a heartbeat.

Pros: thoughful, planned curriculum; lovely, clean, kid-friendly facility; internet monitoring

We've had our first child in Primary Prep since my wife's maternity leave ended and we've been overall very satisfied. There have been issues of course, but you expect that when you have so many children interacting; however, problems have been satisfactorily addressed and life goes on.

Compared to all other daycare centers in the general 30062 area, Primary Prep wins hands down. The weekly cost includes all snacks and meals (except breakfast), however from time to time they bring in outside activity vendors and those cost extra.

The children always get play time thanks to an indoor playground that ensures that even during the cold winter and rainy days, the kids get to run out a little energy. Additionally, there are two playgrounds, a pool, a new water-park area and crafts throughout the day.

We moved and wanted to re-locate our child to a closer facility, but were ultimately unsatisified with the care at the new facility, especially when one teacher at the new facility remarked how much further ahead of his new peers our son was. That showed us that he was getting above-average instruction at Primary Prep, however, it's not at the expense of playtime. Primary Prep balances instruction and teaching with fun and play.

Cons: class size

My child was told by her teacher not to mention the name of Jesus in the classroom. It is a classroom/school rule.

This is a free country to worship freely why such restriction at this school

If we don't teach children to fear someone then what kind of society are we fostering.

Maybe that teacher would prefer my child saying the word cocaine or prostitution.

Afraid to discuss with anyone since I am afraid that the teacher will be spiteful toward my child. Still thinking of a lawsuit.

I LOVE THE USA!

I recently took a tour of this facility and I have many friends that have children that attend this daycare/preschool. The owner and staff are very friendly. The curriculum is comparable to most other preschools. They offer a GA Pre-K in one classroom. They offer video monitoring which is wonderful for parents to check in and see their kids in action. The facility is just a few years old so everything is new but they do keep it clean and maintained.

I couldn't be happier with Primary Prep Academy. I feel my child has an edge over other children her age because of the curriculum the Pre-K Students have. The teachers, staff, and administration are all caring and know each child by name. Your child WON'T be just another face here!

PROS: Very Educated Staff
