I am very interested. I have a 4yo (Nov.) and a 2yo. 

We live in Marietta right near the square. A few of my mama friends and I have talked about this before, but need/want direction to help get it off the ground, as its just been "talk" and "wouldnt it be great if..."

Please let me know!

Patrice

This is precisely what I am looking for too. I know I am replying to an old thread, but have you all started anything yet?  I have a son, Michael, who will be 3 on the fourth of July.  I would love to get together with some other great kiddos and mommies!

The OP has not responded to me. Has anyone heard anything back from her?

If not, I would love to get together and move forward with something. 

Please update me on what your thoughts are.

I was near Marietta Square this morning for a yoga class and I fell in love with that area!  Looking into potential sites for a school.  Still would love to meet and discuss.  My experience is in Bev Bos like preschool (child-led, developmentally appropriate learning, play-based and mixed age (3-5) group,  also a cooperative).  I would also love to include nature-based learning into a preschool.  Just looking for a few people who have wanted an alternative to the preschools that are available in this area!  Let me know if you still want to meet.  Looking at next Fall opening, but would love to start meeting and gathering ideas/thoughts.   Perhaps even playgroups or parent discussion groups.  Thanks, Joy

Looking for an alternative to the academic preschools offered?  We are a group that began meeting this summer in Marietta as a playgroup.  We now rent a space and meet on Wednesdays (hoping to add another day in January). We have a terrific group of Moms and children who share the same belief that children learn best through play and interaction with nature and other children.....developing the whole child in a developmentally appropriate way!  Some of our group is considering homeschooling and some are just do not want their children to go to traditional preschool.  If you are interested please email me at JoyNiss@bellsouth.net.   We are looking to expand our group a little and would love to meet you.
