We have been so happy with North Point Prep. Our 10 month old has been in the infant room since she was 8 weeks old, and she loves going to school. Every morning she kicks her feet in excitement as soon as we walk in the door. The entire staff feels like our extended family, they are so warm and loving. We could not be happier!

I would encourage thoughtful, intentional investigation of any program you consider placing your child in. Only you can decide what program is best for your child. I would implore you to do so for yourself. Don't allow Kudzu to do so for you.

I too am appauled at the negative reviews on this site. I sincerely hope that no one will take seriously a review by an adult mocking someone for her weight on a public website. that is vicious. That said, NPP has been a loving environment for both of my children. Admittedly, there was 1 teacher that none of us were sad to see go (and it took too long for that to happen), but otherwise, we could not be happier. Each teacher in that building loves our children and our children love them. The families are all close & have playdates outside of school. these kids grow up together from babies to kindergarten then back again for afterschool and summer camp. Pls stop posting negative reviews on this site so we can save the dignity of this school for the children who are still there!

Too expensive, pretty small place, not good enough for your kids. My son was there a couples of months and i didnt feel comfortable with the owner/principal, in fact i dont believe that a woman with a BIG problem of weight is a good example of a healthy lifestyle for kids

My 4 year son has been with North Point Prep for almost a year. He is behind in his speech, and his speech therapist visits the school weekly. When my son started the private pre-k, his teacher emailed the first day in a complaining tone that she had problems communicating with William. These problems continued, and after 3 weeks, he was suspended from school. Fortunately, I was able to find a new school with a GA pre-k program (which North Point Prep no longer offers). Moral of the story: don't send your kid to North Point Prep if they are in speech therapy.

I am horrified that people would post such awful things about North Point Prep! In response to a recent post, my daughter had received several therapies at NPP including speech. All of the teachers worked right along side the therapist and my daughter to create a wonderful environment for her to learn and grow. The educators and administrators work very hard to create a safe, educational, loving and fun environment for children. I highly recommend this school. It's the best in the area.

As a mother, educator, and current parent of two North Point Prep students, it breaks my heart for the child whose parent feels the need to post lies on a review website to facilitate their denial of what is apparently a special needs child. We have had nothing but positive things come out of this center from our children and the several dozen children and parents that we've met at North Point Prep. The teachers are indeed educated, highly trained, and well supported by management in any need that we've had come up. I feel confident that they've been instrumental in preparing my children for Pre K, elementary school and beyond. Keep it up, North Point Prep!

I was made aware of the complaint of my daycare by my mother. Upon reading some of the issues, I see a need to add some additional information. My son and daughter also contracted salmonella but it happened while they were at home with my visiting mother who also got sick. When we returned to daycare, we were told about the outbreak. Anita notified the state, the health department and parents when a doctor (who was a parent) tested his daughter and she was positive for salmonella. As to the teachers being afraid to tell management about bad treatment by another teacher? I asked several teachers and they said nonsense and also said that the teachers have a kid in just about every classroom and are very picky. That makes me feel good about having my kids there. It is a great school and I recommend it to everyone.

Since its conception, in 1997, North Point Prep has remained committed to upholding a rigid set of core beliefs. One of those being that children are competent, eager learners who, when provided with an appropriate environment, will develop across all domains of learning successfully. While we have provided this for hundreds of children over 13 years, certainly there are a few children that had needs that could not be addressed in our setting. Be that as it may, we have and will always extend and utilize every possible resource before coming to this conclusion. It is also important to know that in order to have such a tremendously successful program we must have the highest caliber teachers. Children are treated with love, respect and kindness as we shape their social/emotional competence. There is no tolerance for the verbal or physical abuse of children, nor is there trepidation by employees to report any concerns/suspicions they should have in this respect (or any other) to management. Lastly, let it be clear that a group of children at North Point Prep were victim, along with several other local elementary schools, to the spring 2010 nationwide outbreak of salmonella. After subjecting the program to voluntary testing across every possible source, it was concluded that the outbreak did not originate at North Point Prep. Rather, it likely came from local grocery store inventory that was presumably purchased and stored in several household freezers.

I have been an educator for 15 years, teaching grades from 1st through 12th, in the public school system. I enrolled my son in NPP in the private pre K program, thinking that it would give him an advantage to attend this year, and then begin GA PreK the following year. My son had been at his previous school since he was 9 weeks old, so moving to a new environment was a challenge. By the third week, he was still having adjustment issues with the schedule and procedures. He also had just turned 4 by the third week as well. I was told that he probably needed medication since he wasn't fitting the mold of the classroom. I should have left that day. By the 6th week, even though we had been more than cooperative in helping him adjust, we were asked to leave. The owner, Anita, stated that we weren't the right fit for the school. I find this disgraceful as an educator of diverse children. The teachers were inexperienced and lacked both knowledge and compassion. The owner was simply ridiculous, in the fact that my husband caught her doodling leaves during a meeting to brainstorm ways to help my child adjust comfortably. If your child is shy or takes more than 3 weeks to adjust to brand new surroundings then this is not the school for you. It has a very cold and unloving atmosphere.

I am a former parent. There are two things I would like everyone to know. #1, my 13 month old child was struck by a teacher at NPP. It was caught on tape and the teacher was fired. However, my wife witnessed it and had she not been there I seriously do not believe anything would have happened. After the incident she took the kids to the car and called me. I had to call Anita and notify her, she pulled the tape, fumbled around for about an hour, and then fired the teacher. Had we not called she would have had not known. #2, my 4 yr old became gravely ill to the point of hospitalization. Poisoning was not proven but 13 kids at the school were sick. Salmonella was proven in 7 of the kids and all the while Anita denied there was a problem. I did call the state and I would suggest that any other concerned parent do the same... (404) 657-5562.

A school is only as good as the teachers, administrators and staff there. Presently there is an instructor at Northpoint (an african american female)whom we shall call this teacher Mrs. X is allegedly verbally abusive towards students at Northpoint Prep. The administrator has been notified yet is unresponsive to students and parents concerns. There are cameras in the school, but it has been noted and alleged that they turn the sound off. This teacher takes students out into the hallway and is verbally abusive towards them (yelling at them and using an inappropriate tone towards them). ther teachers are aware of this also, but they refuse to come forth because they are afraid that they will lose their jobs if they complain on another teacher to Anita. This shows very little professionalism and character. Perhaps the State of Georgia needs to conduct an investigation into this because children should not be mistreated nor be fearful of a teacher. I would not encourage ANYONE to enroll their child at NorthPoint Prep until this teacher is removed. Every child deserves respect.
