Help! Recommendations for Childcare Brookhaven/Chamblee/Buckhead Area

Does anyone have any recommendations for childcare centers or in home day cares in the Brookhaven, Chamblee or Buckhead area? I am due in August and think I may have waited a bit too long to find childcare and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.

Also, please let me know if anyone is interested in sharing a nanny in the areas listed. I would not need childcare till November, when I go back to work.

Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million!

  • Look into Dunwoody Prep in Chamblee Dunwoody, Creme de la Creme in Buckhead, and The Goddard school also in Buckhead.

  • I hear great things about Brookhaven United Methodist CDC. But they are usually full for infants from siblings. It is worth a tour and putting your name on the wait list (free). There is also a newer daycare that I know nothing about at N. Druid and & Briarcliff.

     We ended up going the nanny route because we didn't get into United Methodist Center. It has worked well for us. There are a lot of people who nanny share in our neighborhood. If your community has a email list, reach out to see if there is a pregnant mom  who might want to go in with you. Hiring of nannies takes place usually 6 weeks or so before they start as they won't want to be on hold waiting for you to go back to work.

     Good luck!

  • Thanks for the information everyone. It is greatly appreciated!
  • The chastain school came highly recommended to me. Wieuca baptist church was also recommended to me. And a friend had a bad experience with Suzuki she and another mom there ended up pulling ther kids out to do a mommy share. I thought the Goddard school woman on the phone was way too pushy, but I hear very good things about the brand. I started looking at both Buckhead and midtown, but settled on midtown. After my friend's raves, I would have looked a chastain school if it wasn't been so far north in relation to my home and work. Good luck!! I know how stressful that search can be

  • We loved the Chastain School.  We only left because we moved.  They open a new infant room every 3 months so they usually have space.  What I loved most is that the kids stay with the same class and teachers until they turn 3 and the ratio is 1:4 so they get a lot of individual attention.  It is a little pricey--we were paying 1460--but it was well worth it.
