Growing Child Care Center In Kennesaw, GA

Since opening in 2004, Foundations For The Future School has maintained steady growth and expansion, in an industry that is often filled with numerous options for families. The teachers and administrative staff at Foundations work diligently to create a school environment where children feel comfortable and enjoy learning, parents feel confident in their child’s care and daily exploration, and where great teachers invest in their careers. Over the past 13 years, the staff and administration at Foundations has maintained the highest level of accreditation available to child development centers through NAEYC and Advanc-ed.
