The Academy is an exceptional childcare facility. My daughter has developed tremendously both educational and socially while attending The Academy. This establishment has a loving and caring staff. My child is safe and in a loving environment at The Academy. I wouldn't take my child anywhere else.

We have had nothing but an amazing experience with the Academy in the almost 2 years our daughter has been enrolled. After touring handfuls of daycares, the Academy is where it felt like 'home' and the only place that didn't feel like we were just a number. We can't say enough about the owner and teachers! I firmly believe it says something about the school when our daughter has never cried once when being dropped off, wants to play longer at pickup, unprompted she gives every teacher a hug when we leave and that teachers that she hasn't even had know her name and interact with her!

I am amazed at the quality of services that I have received at The Academy. My daughter has attended two other child care centers, prior to enrollment at The Academy. At one (in the same area), she was left on the playground by one of her teachers. At the 2nd child care center she attended (which was a licensed, home child care facility in Bartlett) she kept having unexplained, minor scratches/injuries and cried profusely when I dropped her off everyday; even after she should have been accustomed to being dropped off. I contacted the director/owner, Ms. Terri Oliver, about enrolling my daughter at The Academy. She was very welcoming and assured me that my daughter would be in the best of care and in an environment that would be exceptional and conducive to her growth and development. Of course, my first thought was, "everyone says this". However, Ms. Terri and her staff have done nothing less. They have been nominated as one of the top child care facilities in the city....more than once...this should speak volumes in terms of the quality of care that they give to the families that they serve. I am more than pleased with how much my daughter has learned since her first day. I am also impressed with the recent incorporation of STEM lessons into the curriculum; they recently had a science fair for the students.....how cool is that???? I am a former teacher and was once a trainer for KinderCare.....therefore, I usually expect way more out of child care facilities than most can offer. I once told a child care teacher that I am not looking for a babysitter....my child needs an educator....you will not be disappointed with the educators here! The Academy has exceeded my expectations.....I HIGHLY recommend them.

We are utterly floored by our experience here and of what we witnessed and were subjected to. The bizarre behavior, irrationality and attempts at intimidation were unconscionable. I will not air our experiences here, but welcome any private messages. No false or embellished statements in an attempt to defame the establishment will be made. Only facts, most of which are in writing from the establishment, as they occurred will be shared.

Since my initial review, I have been contacted by others who had similar experiences. Negative reviews were met with harassment until they finally gave up and took them down. I am suspect of this being the reason that there is only one 1-star review on facebook and no reviews on yelp other than my own. But this is pure speculation.

Note: Any attempt at coercion, harassment, intimidation through any form of contact in attempt to have me remove or alter my review as well as attempts at "black listing" with other establishments will not be tolerated and will be met with legal proceedings as well as additional reporting to, but not limited to, the Better Business Bureau and the TN DHS, Child Care Licensing Board.

Feel free to contact me directly for specifics about my experience. I am still in shock from the handling and bullying involved. I simply would not recommend this facility and we are very fortunate to be going elsewhere.
