Welcome to The Settlement Preschool & Kindergarten

The Settlement was established in 1986. Our mission is to provide the best in early childhood education and childcare services for each of our enrolled children. We understand that parents need to follow their daily pursuits knowing that their children are safe and are enjoying their day in a safe developmentally appropriate environment.

In recognition of our high quality environment, programs and staff we qualified as Montgomery County Tennessee’s first nationally accredited childcare facility. In 1996 we received accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the oldest and most highly regarded childcare authority in the U.S. This accreditation serves as a clear statement to the quality of the service we provide. What this accreditation means for you and your child is that our standards in all areas of childcare services far exceed the basic licensing requirements of the Tennessee Department of Human Services.

As part of the Settlement's continuous emphasis to improve our childcare and educational services, we have officially become a Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) affiliated learning facility. The primary reason for the move was based on the fact that we will be providing a private kindergarten to our community. In essence, we follow the same educational and childcare guidance set by the State of Tennessee for our local school system.

Therefore, we will begin our application process for Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accreditation in the coming year. This accreditation is needed to continue our commitment of providing a high quality learning environment for our children.

Our preschool/childcare programs begin at age 18 month and continue through pre-kindergarten. All children are grouped by age (18-24 months, 24-36 months, etc.) in individual classrooms. Our programs are designed to be age appropriate, with a focus on group social skills, academic concepts, creative thinking and problem solving. We often hear praise from local public school kindergarten teachers regarding how well prepared our children are when they begin their public school experience.

We also provide childcare services for school age children (kindergarten through the summer following 5th grade). Our before and after school program is for children attending our nearby elementary schools (Northeast, St. B, Glenellen, and Pisgah). The program extends through the summer public school break as a summer day camp.

Our staff has worked together for many years. Our lead teachers and director's average over 15 years experience in childcare…most of that time at The Settlement.

We take great pride in our school, our staff and our accomplishments and would enjoy having the opportunity to share our success with you and your family. We invite you to learn more about us and to visit the Settlement.
