The school is very appealing to the eye and you are captured by the lobby..the fish tanks,birds and lizards cages( I think that is what they were).However I did not like how the rooms were set up; too many kids not involved in a activity and not enough one on one for the price tag.During my observation I saw a teachers chatting with no supervision of the children, a child fell and I was the one to reach out to him. And in that same room saw very little activities.my guide for my tour was new, and was not able to answer my questions. which was very disappointing considering that was why I was there.and questions I felt she should have known if she was able to tour me. I am also unsure of the curriculm it looks very Montessori but I was told they are a blend of teachings. what does that mean?I will not be sending my son there.
I really love this school I only wish the funds were available to send my two. I had done a tour of the school and I was really impressed by the teacher to student ratio. I also liked the fact that they taught several languages to the students and the computers were also in other languages. The school was small, but has so much to offer. If the funds become available I would be happy to send my three to enjoy the interactive learning, language studies, challenging curriculum, and cultural festivals.
The Suzuki Learning Center in Buckhead offers one of the best pre-school learning experiences for the money. My son attended this school for more than two years and thrived in the learning environment. Smaller classes, low student to teacher ratio and a wonderful staff make this almost hidden school in Buckhead, the top in my book. Daily reports tracking progress are sent home with each child. The Director is wonderful and very in tune with the school. This is the best money that we have ever spent. My son had to stop going only because of financial restrictions otherwise he would still be in this top notch school. We miss them a lot!
PROS: Fabulous pre-school setting and great staff!
CONS: Closed on some holidays or other times when daycare is needed, Expensive
