We started out taking our son to The Chastain School (that's a whole other review) and began looking for a new school when he was around 1 year of age. I came across The Legacy Centre buried in a review of local preschools on City Search, and although the reviews were great, there was not much information to be found online. We decided to take a tour and were blown away. The teachers, almost all of which have bachelor's degrees or higher, were amazing. Our earlier experience with preschools/daycares led us to believe we were basically paying for a high priced baby-sitting service, but The Legacy Centre was a true school. All of the kids were actively involved in learning activities; the teachers are educated and engaged; the owner is interested in providing a great learning environment for the kids and taking care of her staff at the same time (I understand they get a paid trip anywhere they want after five years employment). Needless to say, we moved our son as soon as he turned 18 months and have never looked back. Most days when we go to pick him up he doesn't want to leave! The only downside I see is they do not take children under 18 months. We plan to have a second child and originally planned to move our son and the new one to another school when the time comes - we have since changed plans. The Legacy Centre is too good and our son loves it too much for us to pull him out. We'll deal with the inconvenience of two drop offs and pick ups - it's that good.

The level of attention to bring out the best in each child is apparent from the experienced and caring teachers - it's nice to finally find a place that puts its priorities in the right areas.
