Focusing on Growth and Development
Pre-school education must offer a fine balance between “structure” and “freedom of choice.” The children are allowed to reach out to fulfill their natural curiosities and to explore the obvious. Our loving staff will observe and interact with the children while guiding and directing them to further grow by enhancing their experiences. Our program provides this balance by allowing the children to be free to explore while offering the stability and security that they need. We are committed to supporting children’s development and learning; respecting individual differences; and helping children learn to live, play, and work cooperatively. We promote children’s self-awareness, competence, self-worth, resiliency, and physical well-being. Our experienced, caring and committed teachers provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum to foster children’s self-confidence, creativity, and social skills that helps prepare each child for preschool and kindergarten.
Although many of our staff members have college degrees and masters all staff members are required to continue their education annually by completing 18 hours of continuing education in the childcare field. All employees have been fingerprinted and passed criminal background checks. Each staff member has completed certifications required by the state of Tennessee and DHS to teach in a childcare setting. All of our full-time staff and drivers are trained in CPR and first aid and we have a licensed EMT with IV therapy on staff. Your child’s safety is our primary concern at all times.

School Age Staff
What better way to end your school day that with a 6-acre playground to play on. Our after school care program was designed so that children felt like they were coming home from school. Staff members welcome the children off the bus with an afternoon snack and a choice of many activities including games, books, puzzles, art, outside play, and of course homework time.
