Mt. Carmel Preschool meets Monday-Fridays from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM, September through May. Ages range from 12 months to five years with several options available for each age group. Teacher-student ratios are low; curriculum is hands-on and developmentally-based. Our motto is "Put on your listening ears, use your kind hands, and your kind heart." Come and join in the fun!   We are also an exempt church school facility and are not licensed by or required to be licensed by the State of Georgia.


Mt. Carmel is excited to offer a new extended day option for families that need a longer school day.  Contact the director for more information. 


Our teachers are proponents of play-based learning and instruction.  Our Board Chairman, Lorrie Ignatius taught at the Jarvenpaan Englantilainen Leikkikoula school and carried knowledge from Finland to Norcross, incorporating the best techniques from both countries making Mt. Carmel Preschool a child-centered learning environment.
