About Us

Herrington Academy is founded by Mrs. Herline Ford, a former Gwinnett County Pre-k Teacher, Gwinnett Technical College educator, and former Bright From The Start state licensed consultant where she spent many years regulating childcare facilities throughout Gwinnett County. We are new to the community but not new to early childcare and learning.  Herrington Academy is licensed by Bright From The Start. www.decal.ga.gov. 





Safety is a priority for our school. Our doors remain locked with security access available only for enrolled families.


 We will maintain our earth-tone and natural calming environment.  We do not believe in over stimulating the children with heavy cartoons characters. We beleive in allowing children to explore their natural environment by exploring the world we live.


We will:

  • Recognize and nurture the stories, experiences and learning potential that enrich our image of the child.

  • Provide an environment rich with materials that enable children to express their ideas and explore their experiences.

  • Observe, listen, question and interact with the children.

  • Recognize parents and include them as part of our education process. Provide a comfortable natural environment filled with opportunities for communicating and relating.




Vision Statement

Working in partnership with our parents, teachers and the community to uphold and achieve the highest standards for early care and Learning.



Mission Statement

To maintain a high quality education environment that is designed to provide an outreach to children and their families, and the community, by offering a safe, creative and structured environment to develop each child's unique spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual skills.
