About the Provider

Description: The Sewanee Children's Center offers a comprehensive developmental child care program responsive to the needs of local families and children. The school is constituted as a parents' cooperative and operated by parents through a Board of Directors. Parental participation is the lifeblood of the school. HISTORY The school opened in 1949 under the name of Sewanee Nursery School and Kindergarten, Incorporated, offering morning care primarily to university faculty children. In 1967 the Board began an extensive scholarship program to offer the benefits of a preschool experience to the whole community. This diversity provided a broader cultural experience for all. In 1977 the school extended its program to provide afternoon care for preschoolers and children through the second grade. In 1983 our name was changed to The Sewanee Children's Center, to reflect our wide-ranging program. In 1997, the school extened its program to provide care through 8 year olds. The Center is licensed by the state of Tennessee under the Department of Human Services and is a Three Star agency. The Center is an exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
