Choosing the Right Preschool


“Is my child ready for elementary school?”

If you’re the parent of a young child or children, chances are you’ve asked yourself this question. In today’s world, parents want to be sure they’re giving their child every advantage and opportunity. That means ensuring their education begins early—and gets off to the right start.

For moms of school-aged children,  you all know that elementary school comes quickly and once you are on that train, it moves fast.  The academic and social preparation that preschool provides helps with this transition – for both children AND moms!  So how do you choose a preschool?

There are many factors to consider, so you want to weigh your options carefully and make sure that you’re making the best decision for your family. Here are a few things to ask about when selecting a preschool experience for your child:

  • Curriculum and learning experiences
  • Building safety and security
  • Physical fitness, indoor and outdoor activity
  • Healthy food selections
  • Extracurricular learning opportunities
  • Communication with families

At The Children’s Courtyard®, you’ll find way more than just daycare. At this school, achievement starts early. Their early childhood education experience begins in warm, nurturing infant classrooms, and continues through programs for school-age students.

Inspired by the HighScope educational philosophy, the foundation of the school’s approach to early education is active learning and children’s initiative. Children’s critical thinking, self-confidence, and problem-solving abilities are developed through strong teacher-child interactions and a robust Plan-Do-Review process. The result is an independent child, ready for success.

As a committed partner to busy, working parents, the school features flexible offerings such as full- and part-time enrollment options. Plus, they are committed to the complete well-being of your growing child through healthy food choices and plenty of physical activity.

Jessica is an adventure-loving, over-committing, and previously organized mother of 2! She and her husband (high school sweethearts) moved to Atlanta in 2006 after graduating college, ready to start their life in the “real world”. They have experienced so many wonderful life milestones while in Atlanta – lived in Buckhead pre-kids, bought a house in great Smyrna neighborhood, had their first child in 2011 (a spunky little girl, Vivian), welcomed their second child exactly 18 months later in 2012 (a creative and crazy little boy, Harrison), and most recently added a Golden Doodle named Winston into the mix. Jessica and her family have since moved to the burbs of Milton where you now find them past 2 horse farms on the right. Jessica has always loved being part of a community, so when the opportunity to join the Atlanta Mom executive team presented itself it was a no brainer! She loved it so much, in fact, that in 2021 she and Natalie joined forces to lead the team and continue connecting with awesome moms across the ATL!
