About the school

A Fresh Start Preparatory School (AFS) offers full-time and part-time programs for children age six weeks through five years. This NAEYC accredited school began serving families in the Sandy Springs area in 2008. It’s open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 5:00pm, with optional after-care. The school’s goal “is to provide children with a clean, safe and comfortable learning environment, where we believe that children have the power to learn, are curious and creative and can succeed! This school serves a limited number of students (no more than 27), creating a warm environment that allows for more individualized attention for its students and families.

Educational philosophy and administration

A Fresh Preparatory School specializes in a STEAM curriculum, fostered by a Montessori childcare setting, with a focus on early education and readiness. They believe, “The best practices of learning occur through exploration, play, guidance and loving care!” AFS also implements the Frog Street curriculum, which the publisher calls a “comprehensive, research-based program that integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines.” Further, the program is designed with a “joyful approach to learning.” Enrichment programs include art, cooking, fire safety, field trips and gardening. The facility features a STEM lab, an outdoor walking path, a garden and an outdoor classroom. Owner-Director Olivia Ferreira brings more than 10 years of childcare experience to A Fresh Start Preparatory School. Olivia’s vision for AFS is to provide “a safe, caring and nurturing learning environment.” Parents describe the staff as “professional” and “attentive.” One mom compliments the staff’s professionalism and responsiveness, and says, “I don’t know what I would do without them. Great school and amazing teachers.” The campus features keypad access to keep children safe.
