Southgate Children's Academy (SCA) in Williamson County, Tennessee was established in August 2002.  SCA is proud to be an independent, local and Franklin family-owned and operated school, with an emphasis on the development of a strong sense of community.  We are licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS) to serve 96 children and are a THREE STAR RATED FACILITY.  As a smaller facility, we offer a cozy, homey atmosphere where every child is well known - and strive to operate this ONE facility well.  

Our mission is to provide the highest quality care possible for infants, toddlers, preschool and pre-k age children.  Our philosophy is that children learn best through play, within the framework of a loving, nurturing environment.  That philosophy is the goal of our motto:  Where Love and Learning Grow Together.

SCA has an active parent organization, Southgate Children's Academy Parent's Association (SCAPA) because we believe that parent participation and collaboration is vital to our success.  We're extremely proud of the fact that many of our referrals come from existing and past families, and we have many families with multiple children enrolled.  An extensive parent reference list is always available.

SCAPA hosts the school's Teacher Appreciation Week and Fall Fest.  SCAPA meetings are held several times a year at the school, with participation and representation from the ownership and management of SCA in order to provide outstanding communication and an open forum for the discussion of suggestions and ideas.  

SCA also provides an annual Spring Egg Hunt, Mother's Day event, Father's Day Celebration, Week of the Young Child, quarterly Saturday Parents Night or Day Out, and other special events in an effort to realize our goal of offering an environment where friendships are encouraged and fostered between children, our families and staff.
