The SAE Preschool Serves Infants Through PreK

The fabulous SAE Preschool serves infants through Pre-Kindergarten. Its initial purpose was to serve our teachers’ children and has expanded over the last three years to include siblings and families seeking an earlier entry into our school. In each preschool classroom, there are two teachers – one native English speaker and one native Spanish speaker. All of our classroom ratios are below the state limit and other area preschools, as we believe we can serve our students better by limiting class sizes to developmentally appropriate groups. Our status as a non-profit allows us to make decisions that focus on our students rather than on the profitability of our program. What is best for the students is always our highest priority. After all, they are our children, too! We thank you for letting us be a small part of their lives and entrusting us with their learning.

PRESCHOOL CLASSROOMS

  • In the current (2016-2017) school year, we have the following preschool classrooms available for the 5 day per week schedule:

  • PRESCHOOL TUITION

    Below are tuition rates for our Preschool.  Please know that all of our founders are/were parents of preschool students and understand the financial and emotional challenges that children this age may bring to a family.  Because of our nonprofit status and being solely focused on the well-being of our students, we have flexibility with how we structure tuition payments.  Each family is unique and more times than not we are able to make adjustments to a family's specific financial situation.  As is the case with our entire school philosophy, one size does not fit all.

    WHY WAS THE SAE SCHOOL CREATED?

    I have no intention of moving my family out of Southern Cobb County. I want for my son what any parent wants for their child - to attend schools that are academically challenging and safe. For our small family of three, we only have one shot at getting this right, and will. I will build it for him here in this community, with your guidance and support.
