Welcome to Preston Ridge Montessori School in Alpharetta, GA. My name is Carol Pittman and I am the director. We are a growing community of loving families and dedicated educators, all invested in providing the best Montessori education possible.
We serve fully potty trained children between the ages of two and a half and six. Our classrooms are each led by a certified Montessori Directress and an assistant. Myself and our tenured staff of teachers have 118 years of combined experience in Montessori education. In addition to our Montessori curriculum, we also offer many enrichment programs.
Our after-school program offers soccer, playball, art, ballet, Tumble Time and chess. The children in after-school are encouraged to enjoy outside play as weather permits in our beautiful outside learning environment.
We are accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission and participate in the Georgia Student Scholarship Program. Our school hosts several family events throughout the year and strongly encourages parent involvement.
We invite you to schedule a tour so that you can see for yourself all the things that make Preston Ridge Montessori School unique.
Discover the calm, peaceful environment of a Montessori classroom, where children work together to explore, learn, and grow. See daily experiences of life at our schools, as the authentic Montessori Method guides children through self-direction and self-discipline toward self-discovery, as they prepare for the future.
Elective programs allow Montessori students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Literacy
Education: B.A. Education, Wake Forest University
Certifications: Association Montessori Internationale
I fell in love with Dr. Montessori’s vision after the birth of my two children. I earned my AMI Primary certification and taught for 15 years before becoming the assistant director at Montessori Unlimited elementary. Ultimately, I found my way to Preston Ridge and planted my roots.
I am a Florida State University graduate who began working in child care in 1984. I began working in Montessori schools in 2014 and have three adult children.
