"Helping weekday preschools flourish"

Welcome to North Georgia Preschool Directors' Association


Dear Weekday School Directors,

The North Georgia Conference Directors Association has been in existence for over 30 years. It includes directors who serve not only in United Methodist churches but also in churches from other denominations in the North Georgia area. We invite you to become an annual member!

We believe that we can help each other with information about good practices, offer fellowship with others who are experiencing similar challenges, and gain access to quality training experiences for ourselves and our teaching staff. Our goal is to foster great programs in all church schools.

We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to discuss such topics as: management policies, recruiting and staffing issues, best practices in early childhood, financial issues, registration and tuition practices, and support for the families of preschool children. Frequently we enlist speakers on these subjects who can share innovative ideas in our congenial setting. The opportunity to share information with experienced directors is invaluable and the fellowship with other church-based professionals can support you in a stressful ministry.

We hope that you will join our association for the upcoming school year. The dues are just $25. If you have any questions, please contact our president, Adele Harrison, at 770-939-6036 or

Members will receive email reminders of meetings throughout the year. We also encourage you to pursue certification for your preschool as a ‘Program of Excellence’ through the process we have established. Application forms for the certification process will be available on this website, as well as a list of procedures. In addition, our Recertification chair, Cathy Waite, will contact all schools that are up for recertification this year.

We hope that you will get involved in this great organization. You’ll learn something at every meeting and make new friends too!

Sincerely, Sally Kramer Membership Chairperson
