The first Peachtree Park Prep was founded in Johns Creek in 1995 and became so popular that we opened Peachtree Park Prep – North School in Alpharetta just three years later in 1998. We offer an enriching and challenging preschool environment that lovingly prepares young children for future academic and professional success.

If you’re looking for a well-balanced preparatory experience that goes much deeper than typical daycare programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our preschool programs give our students a solid foundation in core subjects such as Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science, but we balance these activities with lots of fun and specialty instruction in Art, Music, Spanish & Chinese, and Physical Education.

Our Programs

Loving to Learn

Loving to Learn is a theme that runs through each and every class at Peachtree Park Prep. Your child’s first educational experiences are extremely important because they shape how your child will respond to educational opportunities throughout their academic career. We have high academic standards at Peachtree Park Prep, but we achieve them through exciting and engaging educational activities so our preschool students can naturally develop a love of learning.

Kind Child

Kind Child is a program that helps us focus on the development of character and social-emotional skill. We want every child to feel at home at our preschool and Kind Child is the perfect way for our students and staff to make kindness a habit. We work on social and emotional skills every month and a valuable character trait such as Thankfulness, Empathy, Respect, and a Positive Self-Image every two months. Our goal is to elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care and enrich friendships!

Getting to Our Preschool

Peachtree Park Prep – North School is a block north of Old Milton Parkway (SR 120) in Alpharetta, Georgia. We’re next to Alpharetta Fire Station 84 on the east side of Park Bridge Parkway and our address is 225 Park Bridge Pkwy, Alpharetta, GA 30005. Give us a call if you’re in need of daycare services for your little one or if you’re looking for a preschool program that is proven to prepare young minds for future academic success. We would love to show you around our beautiful preschool campus and introduce you to our amazing teachers!

Peachtree Park Prep, North School opened its doors in January of 1998. My young children were some of the first students to attend. Six months later I applied for a job and started in our Toddler I Classroom. A few months later, I was moved up front and never left! I was promoted to Assistant Director and shortly after became Director. I celebrated my 20th anniversary in July of 2018!

The last eight years I managed both campuses – North School and Johns Creek. It has been amazing watching the children grow and thrive throughout the years and I still keep up with so many of them! Happily married to my husband, Keith, for 28 years. We have two children – Harper (24) and Harrison (23). We love to travel to warm climates and I love to practice yoga. It has been my pleasure to spread our moto of “Loving to learn” throughout the community over the years.

We love PPP North. My son just turned 2 and has been attending for a few months now and he loves going to "school". He runs in and never sheds a tear which makes me so happy! All of the staff I have encountered are amazing and their tenure is incredible which is a testament to the great environment they created for both students and staff. The director is amazing and has been so accommodating during COVID and as we needed to adjust our schedule. I love their philosophy of promoting kindness and have seen my son demonstrate those behaviors at home. His speech has increased greatly and very quickly thanks to the great activities he participates in during the day. Thank you PPP!

Our 2 year old daughter started PPP in November of 2020 and she had been out of daycare since March 2020 due to Covid. We are a very Covid cautious family and had done extensive research among all the daycares in the area. We decided to enroll her in PPP-North School because the school Director answered all of our questions/concerns and were taking all the necessary precautions which gave us a peace of mind. We also loved that the school is ethnically diverse, which was very important to us when choosing a daycare. Our daughter absolutely loves it there. She runs into the school every morning because she's so excited to see the teachers, students and to learn! We love that she takes Mandarin chinese class every Tuesday and they do lots of sensory activities as well. She is getting a top notch education. The staff and Ms. Mickie (the school director) are amazing at their jobs and very communicative. We are very happy to have found PPP.

Hi , My name is Daniela Morrone, I have just moved in to Alpharetta with my family, coming from Argentina. Our family is composed of husband Lucas, our daughters Josefina (5 yr this month) and Catalina (2yr next month). We would like Catalina to start assisting a daycare/preschool as soon as possible to help them adapt to this new country, culture and language. We want a part time program to continue the same hours as in Argentina and finish the day at noon. Would you please help us understand what would be the options your school has that could meet our needs? Thank you very much Daniela

We also love Mickie (the director). She is so personable and friendly. She always has a solution to every problem and communicates openly. Our son has really grown so used to her smiling face every morning. She is awesome with kids and one of the main reasons we feel safe dropping him off every morning. Awesome director, great school! We love it!
