Sprayberry Academy’s Georgia Pre K program is the only of its kind in Cobb County. Each year, 240 children graduate from our Georgia
Pre-K program. With 11 classrooms and 23 quality Georgia Pre K teachers we are able to provide children with the most quality Pre K program in Cobb County.
Sprayberry Academy’s philosophy is to make learning fun and exciting and to help your child become more successful with every school year. Sprayberry Academy’s teachers have received training in the “Creative Curriculum philosophy as well as other courses that assist in our enrichment program. We select teachers that have a strong commitment and desire to ensure every class reaches standards beyond the “typical” pre-kindergarten class.
In our classrooms, the children will not only be focused on developing academically, but also in social, emotional, physical (both fine and gross motor), self direction, self-reliance and valuable life skills. We are confident that the strong foundation your child acquires from our teachers will be the first stepping stone that begins their journey through life. We welcome the opportunity and look forward to serving every child’s early education needs to help them grow into strong confident young adults.
Sprayberry Academy uses the Creative Curriculum philosophy. We encourage learning through play and the development of social and emotional skills that your child will use for years to come. The teachers validate and reinforce children's constructive play to promote the children to extend their ideas and interact with the children so that they learn from their play. The environment that Creative Curriculum provides helps children develop a sense of trust and belonging. Children can feel safe and encouraged to explore not only materials but also their relationships with peers and adults. They feel important and valued when they are able to share their ideas. In addition to social and emotional development , your child will be taught math, science, and literacy concepts that will be a prime focus in kindergarten.
