About Mirror Lake Academy

Mirror Lake is a learning environment for students from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. We have been caring for and educating children in the Mirror Lake community in both Douglasville and Villa Rica, Georgia since 2004. We raise the bar for early learning with our Ascend Curriculum. We challenge our students while encouraging them to express themselves creatively through the arts. In addition to our preschool program, we offer programs for school-aged children including Georgia Pre-K, before school care, The After School Zone and Summer Camp.

Programs at Our Preschool

Healthy Menu

We make a strong effort to teach your child the basics of health and nutrition, offering a nutritious menu that provides your child with a component from each food group, from breakfast to lunch with healthy snacks in between.

A Safe & Secure Learning Environment

At Mirror Lake Academy, we strive to provide a safe and secure learning environment for your family, using a keypad door entry system as well as a state of the art thumbprint identification system to check your children in and out. We also have a closed-circuit camera recording system that allows us to monitor what our classes are up to at all times.

Scheduling a Visit

You and your family are welcome to visit us anytime. Feel free to schedule a visit with one of our Directors at a time that’s convenient for you. We can’t wait to show you around our campus and we look forward to joining you in the growth and education of your children!

Amber Edwards

Director

I started my career in the childcare industry right out of high school. Because of my experiences as a young mother, I knew that I wanted to work with children in my career too. I began in the After-School Program, soon transitioned to a Toddler classroom, and then received a promotion to Assistant Director. After three years as Assistant Director, I was offered the challenge of being Director. I absolutely love being a director and the different challenges the position brings on a day-to-day basis.

I am on the Advisory Board for West Georgia Technical College Early Childhood Care and Education, where I enjoy being able to share my passion for education in young children throughout the community. I am scheduled to graduate this fall with my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education.

I have been married for seven years to my husband, Taylor, and we have three daughters together.

Assistant Director

Hi! My name is Breanna Tarbush. I am the Preschool Director here at Mirror Lake Academy. I have worked in early education for 14 years, 11 of which have been with this company.

I live in Temple, GA with my Husband of 11 years and our amazing 8 year old daughter. I love spending time with my family, going to church, and vacationing at the beach. My daily objective is living a faith based life and serving God through this life we are given. Being able to watch children grow and learn is just an extra in this world we live in.

Mirror Lake Academy has been so good to us since our daughter started about 5 months ago. It was a big transition for all of us since she has never been to a full time center but she absolutely loves going to school. It was a little rough/emotional in the very beginning but they were very patient, kind, and understanding for our whole family. My daughter is in the PreK 3 class and we love that they have a curriculum that they follow and I'm sent pictures daily of what they have done. I look forward to seeing her pictures everyday. The staff is always so friendly and inviting. We're so happy we finally made the decision to join the Mirror Lake Academy family!

I love Mirror Lake Academy. Their staff is wonderful and great to my son! You can tell that the teachers and staff genuinely enjoy working with children. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to keep my children. 10 star rating if I could!

We LOVE Mirror Lake Academy! The staff here cares for my children as if they were their own children. They follow a structured curriculum as your child ages and make sure to communicate all information well with parents. I would not trust any other daycare facility with my kids! I attribute a lot of my children's milestone achievements to MLA and their hardworking teachers and staff.
