About the Provider


Southgate Children's Academy is conveniently located in Cool Springs, but on a private quiet cul de sac.  We offer a cozy and homey setting and low ratios:  Infant rooms never exceed 4 babies per room, and preschool rooms never exceed 10 children.  The business is locally family-owned and operated and not associated with a franchise or corporation.  Tuition includes breakfast, hot homemade lunch and snack.  In addition to the daily pre-planned curriculum, dedicated classes in Art, Spanish, Music, and Fitness are included with tuition.  There are 2 indoor play areas and 2 outdoor playgrounds.  The building is professionally cleaned every night, and linens laundered daily in-house.  We have a 3 Star accreditation from the State of Tennessee, the highest rating possible.   Our motto is "Where Love and Learning Grow Together"-- we believe children learn best through play, in a loving nurturing environment.  Extensive parent references are always available from current and past families.
