As former President for Cobb Professional Child Care Association,I met Ms Erin. It was here I realized her dedication and passion for the child care industry surpassed the average child care worker. I quote her, "Teaching children is my life!"If you visit her words will ring-true-vast amount of ECE materials in her play centers that are age apppropriate and educational. The atmosphere speaks,'love of learning'-with hanging art work,photos of enaged children and even a live bunny! This tell me that the activites are hands on which in ECE opinion is the best way to learn. The most important thing I would like to express is her center is more than ABC'S. From from observation I know that the children learn life skills and social skills; being kind to others,taking care of the enviroment,being the best you can as a person. Skill I do not see often in a daily ruitine in other preschool programs.Important too is Ms Erin understands the importance of the family dynamics by letting the parent know what their child is doing each day to promote a healthy relationship and to be a team player.

Each of my three children attended Miss Erin's school, I never doubted her love for them, or her desire to teach them and prepare them for the future. She can be tough when it's warranted, that is a good thing. She has much to do with the start to success for my lawyer son, my daughter the teacher, and my daughter the scholarship athlete/GT graduate. Thank you, Miss Erin.

I would highly recommend A Better Chance Preschool and Ms. Erin to any family looking for a family oriented, private childcare facility in Cobb County. My son attended from 2 to 5 years old and learneed so much. Upon entering 1st grade he was placed in the highest level reading group at a local private school. Also the moral values Ms. Erin teaches at her school are priceless. Her love for the children stays with them for years to come. My child still talks about Ms. Erin and all of the fun times he had at A Better Chance Preschool. Thank you,

My daughters 13 and 7 started going to Better Chance Preschool when they were 2 and half. Both of them had wonderful foundations of good manners, academics, loving care and hence have been doing very well at public schools. Their KG teachers praised us for how well prepared and confident our kids were. Thanks to a large extent to Ms. Erin. Even though our little one is now in 2nd grade, she still goes to Better chance after school (and loves it ) instead of staying in after-school program. Ms. Erin provides wonderful loving, nurturing care with proper discipline, Montessori kind of fun, learning atmosphere where every kid learns, thrives and gets prepared for the future. We highly recommend 'A Better Chance Preschool'.

Miss Erin has taught so many kids to be outstanding citizens in her years at this business-she is smart and talented and knows how to bring out the "best" in every child. I had interviewed over 20 daycares/in-home childcares in the area and nothing comes close to her nurturing, home-cooked natural foods, disiplinary actions, and superb learning environment. I had a 3 yr old and 5 yr old that LOVED that they could attend the same class together as the younger learn so much from watching older kids, too. Miss Erin is the finest in her field and has helped my parenting abilities tremendously as well. She also aspires to help train others in her field by publishing articles on topics of advancing child development philosophies. What a wonderful treat for your entire family to get your child enrolled in her program!

Ms. Erin has a wonderful preschool program. Both of my kids attend her school and I only wish that I had brought them sooner. She teaches the children the most amazing things about the world and their surroundings. Ms. Erin has prepared one of my children for Kindergarten and he is above where many other children are at this age. Ms. Erin provides the most nutritious meals and I try to model my family's meals after her. She is loving and respectful of the children. She has a multi-sensory approach to a child's learning and goes at their own pace. I recommend her to anyone considering a child care center.

What can I say. This is the best school I have ever seen. Ms Erin is a really incredible teacher and friend. She teaches with love. We moved to Colorado last year and I couldn't find a school or a teacher like Ms Erin. We really miss her and her passion to teach. This coming week we will visit GA and my son wants to see Ms Erin again.

I knew of Erin O'Driscoll's reputation as an outstanding preschool teacher years before I made her acquaintance. But I didn't meet her personally until I brought my three year old daughter. Erin is known throught Cobb County, and in my opinion, one of the best preschools in the West Cobb area. Erin's love for children and her dedication to education is evident from the moment you walk through her door. She is enthusiastic, realistic, supportive, and passionate about the development of young children. She provides a child-centered environment that is warm, nurturing, and stimulating. Not only has my daughter grown academically, she has matured socially and emotionally as well. I feel confident entrusting my child in Erin's care. MY daughter loves her and looks forward to school each day. Erin has truly been a blessing to my family. Guidance Counselor Cobb County School District
