Child Care


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide affordable high-quality child care, for at-risk children in a nurturing environment while empowering families to reach their potential.

“Teaching Children. Empowering Families. Strengthening the Community.”



Our center is licensed by the State of Tennessee with the highest 3-Star Rating, and has achieved this rating since inception of the program in 2001. We offer full and part-time, year-round high-quality education for children 6 weeks to 12 years old Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 5:30pm.

Classrooms implement lesson plans and curriculum in order to meet each child’s individual goals. Enrichment opportunities, such as field trips, Mad Science, and dance, are also offered.

Our goal is to support the cognitive, physical, emotional and social development of each child, while creating a safe environment that encourages growth and learning.

Parents’ and caregiver’s ideas and input are always welcome and encouraged to assist in children’s learning and planning. Interviews with your child’s teacher are available upon request.


One of the most important indicators of a quality day care facility is the child to staff ratio. The fewer the amount of children served to a staff member, the more we are able to focus on each individual child’s needs.
