Donelson Heights Early Childhood Program
DHECP is a ministry of the Donelson Heights United Methodist Church serving children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We strive to provide loving care and learning opportunities for young children in a stable, Christian environment and to develop each child to his/her greatest potential, socially, physically and intellectually, through a program of play, art, literature and music, with special attention given to each child's development.
Donelson Heights Early Childhood Program is a Tennessee State licensed childcare provider. As a licensed facility we must comply with specific policies and requirements that are mandated by the State of Tennessee. An annual evaluation process includes inspections by a safety and health environmentalist, the fire marshal, a health department nurse, assessments of the classrooms and playground by trained evaluators, and several unannounced visits and a scheduled evaluation by a State Licensing Counselor.
DHECP is a member of the Tennessee Conference of United Methodist Association of Preschools, an organization that upholds high quality childcare ministries in United Methodist churches throughout the Tennessee Conference.
When we do pre-screen, what do we look for?
During the pre-screening process our CareForce team:
- Verifies profile information for accuracy
- Cross checks the Better Business Bureau for accreditation and reputation ratings
- Conducts an online media search for negative, newsworthy incidents
- Performs an overall reputation check by reading a sample of online reviews
Please note that the CareForce pre-screening results do not reflect a care provider's licensing status. Learn more about licensing information for child care centers and in-home day cares
Information reviewed during the pre-screening process can change at any time. Accordingly, please make sure you perform your own research on the care providers you are considering and feel completely comfortable with the company or individual you have selected. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for selecting an appropriate care provider for you and your family.
