Continuing Miss Battle's dedication to serving Nashville families.
A Nashville Legacy
The oldest childcare center in Middle Tennessee, our organization began in 1891 when Miss Fannie Battle, a teacher and social worker, saw a need in our community. Children were left alone to roam the streets while their parents went to work. She rented a room in Nashville and began caring for these children by clothing, feeding, education, and even obtaining much needed medical attention.
Today, we remain committed to serving Nashville families in need by providing accessible and affordable high-quality childcare, as well as services and programs to empower families to reach their fullest potential. We continue to develop innovative solutions to expand our capacity to support our rapidly growing community.
