About Harbins Preparatory School

History and Purpose

 Over the last 25 years, Great Beginnings has become a household name for parents here in Gwinnett County by providing high quality Infant, Pre-school, Ga Pre-K and School Age programs. Starting with Great Beginnings of Norcross, Cindy and Lloyd deLatour have been the daily owners and operators of Great Beginnings in Norcross, Sugar Hill, and for the past 14 years - Dacula. Since their start in 1993, the deLatours have dreamed of offering a private alternative to traditional, primary public school. An alternative that is designed with smaller classes sizes, more flexibility and unique child-specific lesson plans than that of traditional public school. Harbins Preparatory School is the product of many years of careful, thoughtful, planning and now with the opening of a one-of-a-kind facility to house this program, HPS is  truly a private primary school experience unmatched by any in Georgia. Currently offering K-4 Private Pre-K and K-5 Private Kindergarten with one-on-one instruction that ensures every child is successful at their own pace. Our mission and objectives are summed up by the words 'where success begins'....success for your child and their beginning years of successful educational pursuits.
