     Our program is the place to be where every child plays, learns, and grows. We are licensed by the state of Tennessee DOE and accept all children and parents in a non-discriminating way. We value each family and their customs and this is one reason our program is so successful! When we share and learn together we ALL grow! We always encourage family members to take an active role in working alongside of us to assure that each child has a remarkable experience while they are here. The purpose of our preschool is to provide each child with a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment.  Our center provides high quality instruction and tender guidance by qualified teachers who encourage children in educational learning and social skills. Your child needs to be 4 by August 15th to join the 4 year old classroom.  We do consider children age 3 that are before August 15th 2020 for a younger early learning class.  All students must be toilet trained with no bathroom concerns. Below are the considerations we use in accepting new students:

  • Siblings of Lake Ridge
  • Students Lake Ridge Zone 
  • Johnson City Employees 
  • Johnson City Residents 
  • All Others Outside of Johnson City Limits

     We accept your request on a first-come basis according to the above criteria. We strongly encourage parents to complete applications prior to our open house as spots are limited.
