My First Academy of Alpharetta is the result of the vision of an educator who believes passionately in the significance of early education, emphasizing on the individuality of the child, a Montessori pillar, and who recognizes the increasing need for quality preschool options in our communities during challenging times.

My First Academy of Alpharetta is an educational center that creates a community in which children work cooperatively in a social atmosphere of freedom founded on respect. In our community we allow children the freedom to develop their own personality and individuality. Children are the most important part of our small community; therefore, they have the ability to make important decisions that will help them to develop a sense of responsibility, motivation and self-discipline.

  • Our Mission is to guide students to achieve academic excellence through the Montessori curriculum, hands-on learning, that helps children reach their full potential in all areas of life at their own pace, without pressure or competition, thus, our mission is to provide "Education for Life".

Our cozy brick house offers a beautiful and prepared environment with quality materials and highly trained staff, serving ages 0 - 6 years.

Based on what Dr. Maria Montessori believed, children from the age of 0 to 6 experience a series of “sensitive periods” during which they learn faster and effortlessly. Our goal is to show them how to use their natural learning skills by applying our hands-on curriculum “show me how to do it, do not do it for me”. Children at these ages learn through observation and master the skills by repetition.

“Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.”
Chinese Proverb.

Through our well-structured curriculum, children feel appreciated for who they are. We will help each one find his/her own special talents and expand beyond them. We introduce new concepts in ways that help children internalize knowledge, not just memorize it. Our curriculum helps children develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they’ll need to succeed in kindergarten, school and life.

Our Vision is to provide quality Montessori Education for all the children in our community, laying a foundation upon which each child can build and become global citizens, playing a responsible role in protecting the global environment and fostering peace and cooperation.

My First Academy of Alpharetta utilizes the Montessori Method in its mission to provide an Education for Life and a superior preparation to meet the needs of the families within their communities. Through the use of Montessori materials and joyful learning, we provide an environment that encourages an integral development of the child (body, mind and spirit) leading to the fulfillment of each child's individual potential.

“Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world”
Maria Montessori

“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.” Maria Montessori We seek to ensure high academic standards by providing a well-structured program, low student-teacher ratio (12 to 1) and meticulous communication with parents.

My First Academy of Alpharetta is a place where a child's social, intellectual, creative and compassionate potential is nurtured, respected and guided.
