About Mother’s Love
Quality Child Care for the Selective Parent
For over 20 years, Mother’s Love Child Care & Learning Center has been committed to providing exceptional child care and learning programs for the children and families of our community. We offer care for children 6 weeks-12 years old in a warm and loving environment that gives parents peace of mind. By continuously maintaining high standards of quality, MLCC was named Center of Distinction, achieved NAEYC Accreditation, and most recently was awarded a Quality Rated status from Georgia’s Department of Early Care and Learning.
Mother’s Love CC is the place that Lynn Ross, owner & operator, found that many of her life’s passions converged. Before building MLCC in 1991, Lynn graduated cum laude with a Master’s Degree in Maternity & Child Nursing and then worked as a charge nurse as well as a nursing instructor for many years. Upon opening the schools, Lynn received her National Administrator’s Credential (NAC) and became a state approved child care trainer. She continued to advocate for young children by serving on numerous county and state level committees including the Georgia Child Care Association Board of Directors and the recent Early Childhood Education Subcommittee for the Governor’s Education Reform Commission.
As a role-model and mentor for other preschool providers in the Georgia, Lynn won GAYC’s Fan Brooke Award for her innovation, enthusiasm and dedication in working with young children. She was also awarded the Georgia Child Care Association’s Industry Service & Recognition Award in 2013 and then their Leadership Award in 2014.
Lynn’s education, experience and commitment to improving standards in early childhood education is just one of the reasons why parents consistently choose us!
Young children learn best through play and, beginning in our Infant Room, we implement our learning program which is designed to develop the skills that act as building blocks for a lifetime love of learning. MLCC has been providing a solid foundation for the education of young children for more than two decades.
We use an integrated curriculum “method”, based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS), that supports the children’s individual rates of learning as well as their approach to learning. The GELDS is the structure of 5 learning domains, 49 learning standards, and over 500 standard indicators that guides the planning, implementation, and assessment of your child’s education.
Our certified teachers create weekly lesson plans based on the interests and developmental level of the children and offer high quality experiences that promote social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. We provide a healthy balance between group and individual interactions, choice and structured experiences, and teacher and child-directed activities. The children are encouraged to be active learners and to express their creativity and individuality.
Health & Nutrition
With a Registered Nurse on staff, you can be assured that we take the health of the children very seriously. We have adopted policies well above the required standards and we implement procedures to ensure that the policies are strictly followed. From handwashing and cleaning schedules to dispensing medication and reporting illnesses, you will find that we do what it takes to keep the children and staff as healthy as they can be!
In addition, we provide child friendly, USDA approved, nutritionally balanced meals. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are prepared fresh daily by a full time cook. We have incorporated all of the latest recommendations from the USDA and limit fats and sugars on our menus. Meals are served family style at child-sized tables where the teachers provide opportunities for practice with self-help skills and encourage appropriate table manners.
Safety & Security
Research has shown that children learn best in an environment where they feel safe and secure. The safety and security of the children is of utmost importance and we actively follow a detailed preparedness plan. In addition to our classrooms providing a safe and secure environment, our center institutes many other important safety features including…
- Secure coded and monitored building entry
- Video cameras in all classrooms and outdoors that are monitored by the Owner and Director

At MLCC, we depend on our teachers and staff to follow our mission in providing the best possible environment for your child. That’s why we hire only the most dedicated and qualified candidates to join our team.
We follow a detailed procedure before, during, and after the hiring process.

Once hired, each employee completes an extensive orientation and training program that includes regular observation by our management team.
