The Emory WorkLife Resource Center announces that two separate providers in the Emory Child Care Network are opening new centers this summer.
Clarian Place Child Care & Learning Center is opening a new child care facility in the space located on Scott Boulevard previously operated by Emory Montessori School. The existing space had been vacant for a couple of years and has recently been undergoing renovation and upgrades. The original Clarian Place location on Lawrenceville Highway has been opened for just over a year and expects to begin the NAEYC accreditation process in September. A center must be open a minimum of one year in order to begin this process. Both locations serve infants through Pre-K and the new location will offer after-school care and transportation from some of the neighborhood elementary schools as well. Currently, the centers do not offer Georgia Pre-K, but they are exploring the possibility. Clarian uses the High Reach Learning curriculum. The new location has openings in all rooms and is currently pre-registering. They expect slots to fill quickly. Emory has a priority admission at the school. For additional information on Clarian Place or to arrange a tour, contact Teresa Hicks (Director) at (404) 248-3938 or at Clarianplacelc@bellsouth.net.
The Goddard Schools also plans to expand their metro-Atlanta locations into Buckhead. A new facility is being built on Piedmont near Lenox Road. The center is tentatively scheduled to open in September. Each Goddard School is individually owned and operated. The owners work onsite with their directors and teachers in providing quality programming to children and families. Goddard offers a self-proprietary curriculum with enrichment activities as a part of their programming. The Buckhead location will offer care for infants through Pre-K. The new facility is in the Emory Child Care Network and offers a 10% discount for employees of Emory. They are currently pre-registering and have availability in all rooms. For additional information about the Buckhead Goddard School, contact Kellen Stennett (Owner) at (404) 467-7577 or at AtlantaGA@goddardschools.com.
