It was a difficult decision to place my child in the care of someone else after having in-home care for two years. However, I felt that my daughter needed more stimulation and interaction with children her age then our nanny could provide. I spoke to many of my working friends who had plenty of experience in a wide-scope of childcare centers in Cobb County. When I asked neighbors and even some of my co-workers who they would recommend one school kept popping up-Primrose School of Kennesaw North. They seemed to really love it for a variety of reasons but most importantly, they just felt 'at home' and 'at peace' with their children being enrolled there. After touring and meeting management and staff I understood why they felt this way. All I can say to others looking for childcare is to ask your friends and neighbors for their input and be prepared to visit several centers (just so you have a basis of comparison). However, I speculate that once you meet the folks at Primrose Kennesaw North this is where you will end up. Tuition is just a little bit more than some (but not all) of the centers I went to. However, I really felt that it was worth every penny. And, when you break it down by day-it really is not that much more than a center of much lower quality.

We just enrolled our child at Primrose Kennesaw North after a lengthy review of 5-6 child care centers in the Kennesaw and Acworth area. We are very excited about him starting in a couple of weeks! To sum it up, we chose this location because of our 'gut feel' and how welcome they made our son feel. Of course, there were many other factors that came into play such as their program, online reviews that we read, reputation and work-of-mouth referrals from friend. We even looked at state licensing reports over a course of time for all the places we were considering (I understand that their jobs at licensing is to identify areas of improvement for these centers but some reports were rather surprising....'enlightning'). When we started looking I expected their rates to be higher than they are because of their reputation. I'm paying a little more than I might at a few other places we toured but it was comparing apples to oranges we felt. Anyway, we're excited about our choice and feel really good about it. The management and staff were all so nice too.
My son is autistic and tge teachers are so good with him. They don't single him out based on his skill level which I appreciate. They ALWAYS call me if anything happens from a bite to a rash to a fever. I am always told when he needs anything. They were so wonderful when he started. He was still eating puree foods even though he was just shy of 2 and having texture issues. The teachers finally got him off a bottle and eating 'big boy food' Between the great and caring teachers and staff and his speech therapist; my nonverbal son is now saying words! I'd recommend them in a heartbeat!
