Kingswood School

Experts agree, providing children with a solid educational foundation is key to their successful intellectual and societal growth, which is why at the Kingswood School we have focused our efforts on providing your aged 2-5 child with programs that emphasize cognitive, social and spiritual development. We accomplish this by encouraging individual exploration and team participation in a nurturing and caring Christian environment, supported by a team of talented teachers, many of whom have been with us ten years or more.

It is also the reason why we have chosen to keep our student-to-teacher ratios low, and to require the majority of our staff members to hold college degrees and have prior experience teaching preschool children. Areas of concentration include math and reading readiness, language development, computer instruction, chapel, music, movement, social studies, science experiences, crafts, celebrations of the theater and arts, and holiday parties. Since its inception in 1994, the Kingswood School has been continuously honored as a Preschool of Excellence by the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Because the Kingswood team recognizes that your child’s educational success also depends upon parental input, we offer moms and dads several unique ways to get involved. In our Parents Can We Talk? program, parents are invited to meet with staff members in the Spring and Fall to discuss general parenting issues, including but not limited to potty training, helping your child make friends, disciplining strategies, and preparation and information on public and private school attendance. This open discussion format has produced many helpful ideas and practical hints for our participating parents. Our Moms in Touch group meets once a week to pray for the school, its leaders and its students and all mothers are welcomed to attend.

Included here is a brief overview of the Kingswood School curriculum and registration requirements. For more in-depth information and a personal tour of the school, we encourage you to call our Preschool Director Carolyn Ellis at 770-458-8407.
