Cannot say enough about this school. Great service, wonderful customer service, friendly staff, caring teachers. The quality of education is the highest. The school goes beyond the requirements of Ga-Pre k and provides field trips, Spanish classes as well as a physical activity class twice a week.

I was so nervous about moving my 3 year old from an in home care to 'big school' and had VERY high expectations for Young Life... and they met them COMPLETELY! I was very worried about the large class size as well- but with the 3-4 teachers, they mangage very well! It's amazing the order and routine they establish. My child loves it and I enjoy it b/c it really has a neighborhood feel to it! We've met a lot of families that go to our church/pool/etc that we didn't know before! I can't say enough good things! THANK YOU YOUNG LIFE!!!

I have two children in Young Life, and have been a customer of theirs for 7 years. I pulled my son out of another care facility that I wasn't happy with, and by chance Young Life had an open spot (rare!). It was the best decision we ever made. Their Pre-K program is outstanding, and their summer camp is wonderful. They are family-owned, have lots of long-tenured teachers, and have an amazing campus. They care about the children & it shows. My kids love it, and really, so do I.

I put my child on the waiting list at Young Life before she was born and still had to wait a year after she was born. Yes, there is a waiting list, but I am not sure why. Before the school even closes, the teachers are cleaning up, with the babies sitting in chairs watching. My child was bitten five times in six days, and nothing was done. I'll take my business and my child elsewhere, thanks.

My child has been at this school for two years and loves it. He has been in daycare for three years and the first year I pulled him out of two day cares. I could not be happier with Young Life. They know every child by there name. Everyday my child says he had fun and wants to go back. When I first brought him to the day care when he was one he loved it.

I've read the reviews on kudzu.com for this daycare and decided to give it a try. Miraculously (given that reviewers were saying there was a wait list to get in) I managed to enroll my child immediately. The school setting is a nice big property with multiple playgrounds, although the interior is in serious need of renovations. The classes for the 1-4 year olds are huge. They have 30 kids in them. They say that obviously the teacher to student ratio is state approved but come on there are 30 kids in the class with 3 teachers. By the way the playground for my son's class was a tiny paved courtyard not the beautiful playgrounds they have in the back. It was chaotic in the classroom most of the time. I've walked in my son's class one day and a child was by one of the doors crying for his mommy. I stayed in the class for a good 5-10 minutes and none of the teachers went to the child to console him. I hardly ever saw my son's teacher. When I would pick him up around 4pm there would be teenage girls in charge of the class. I would have to leave notes for the teacher and she would get back to me in a note form also. The daily reports were not detailed at all. We couldn't take lunch for our children, they had to eat what the school provided and their lunches as well as their snacks and breakfasts were not very nutritional. Overall environment and teachers were very cold. Not recommended for toddlers who need love and attention.

My son attended Young Life for pre-k. He's now in kindergarten and is ahead of the other kids. They run a top notch school. Both of my kids attended their summer camp there and loved it.

My kids have been going to Young Life for six years. The teachers and care givers that work there now are the same ones that were there when we started! It is family-owned, and on most days, one member of the family is working the front desk. Their summer camp is the best around. I would highly recommend YL to any parent. It makes it easier to go to work every day.

I have two children currently enrolled at Young Life and love it! The people there care deeply about each child and many of them have worked there for decades. In addition to a multitude of scheduled activities and entertainers, the play area is huge and shaded which was very important to me. They even have a pool and provide swim lessons in the summer. They also offer state-funded pre-K which children are automatically enrolled if they attend daycare prior to pre-K. There are very few spots open for children who are not already in daycare. The waiting list is always long to get in - be sure to tell them as soon as you realize you are pregnant if you need infant care!

I've had my kids in 3 different daycares in Atlanta, and checked out many others. This is the best I've seen by far. It's been around for 33 years and is run by the same family. In fact, the people who now run it were originally kids who went there. The variety and quality of educational and fun programs for kids is really mind-boggling. The best part is that everything is totally focused on the safety, well-being, and educational/emotional advancement of the children. I highly recommend YLA to any parent looking for a very high-quality care environment for their children. Word of caution--be prepared to spend the night in line when open enrollment comes along! This place is highly coveted and the limited open spots get snapped up very quickly. I arrived the night before at 6pm and was already 10th in line; by next morning, the line was in the hundreds.
