About the Provider

Description: Welcome to Choice Care Playschool where we play to learn and learn to play together. Our playschool is a licensed program and open to children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We also provide after school care for those children who attended preschool here or have younger siblings here. We are a small 4 star center that focuses on independence, hands on activities and social interaction in small group settings. All children have the opportunity to attend field trips within walking distance. In addition, our preschoolers aged 3 to 5 get the opportunity to go on other field trips. Our goal is to become a 5 star center by the summer of 2012. Once we accomplish this, we will be the only privately owned 5 star center in Rutherford County.
