Akers Academy daycare center and preschool has proudly served Forsyth County since 1996!
We founded our center on standards of strong curriculum, low teacher-student ratios and a safe environment for learning. We believe in active minds working in a healthy environment.
Our Cumming daycare came first offering early childhood education and preschool.
That school continues to grow and thrive with Infant and Toddler programs, as well as Pre-K programs.
By 2004 the growing need for a second school founded our South Forsyth daycare.
We strive to meet the child care needs of parents and their children in Forsyth County, GA.
Our South Forsyth campus offers the same great programs taught by professionally certified teachers.

South Forsyth Daycare & Cumming Daycare Philosophy
Our philosophy at Akers Academy is to engage Active Minds in a healthy learning environment. From teacher-led activities to creative space we aim to keep your child's mind stimulated.
We understand the importance of curriculum based education and becoming a lifelong learner. But your child is not solely using book work at Akers Academy. We work the practical application of every lesson into our process.
Your child will learn problem solving skills while working among their peers and like-minded children. This pushes their social and verbal skills along rapidly while they continue to build new friendships.
