In honor of Read Across America, we are celebrating with LOTS of reading this month at SCA! Here is a list of some of our staff favorites!

Mrs. Kendra (Assistant Director): “I love all of the ‘Little Critter’ books by Mercer Mayer. I have fond memories of reading these with my mother and trying to find the hidden spider on every page!”

Ms. Brittney (Resource Teacher): “My favorite children’s book is ‘Chicka Chicka Boom Boom’ by Bill Martin. My teachers used to read it to me all the time when I was in preschool!”

Ms. Wendy (Toddler 2 Teacher and Department Coordinator): “’Whoever You Are’ by Mem Fox is a fabulous book because it shows children from around the world and incorporates diversity well! It’s a Reading Rainbow classic!”

Ms. Sadaf (Resource Teacher): “’The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle is a great learning tool!”

Southgate Children's Academy was officially established in August 2002. Prior to that date, the school operated for about five years as Babies Oh My!

Our oldest child started attending Babies Oh My! when it first opened, as a brand new facility in the budding Cool Springs area, in March 1996. It is hard to imagine it now, but the Cool Springs Galleria opened in August 1991 and prior to that, very few businesses or restaurants existed in the area, and the land had historically been vast farmland. The mall opening in 1991 was the beginning of tremendous growth in the Williamson county area, led by GM moving their Saturn production plant in late 1990 to Spring Hill, just a tiny country town at the time. As a south Nashville native, who spent a lot of time in Franklin at my aunt and uncle's house, it's surprising even to me that Spring Hill was a town I had never heard of -until GM made their major announcement. Commonly heard: "They are coming to Springfield??" "No, Spring HILL, south of Nashville. SpringFIELD is north of Nashville". Oh, ok, never heard of it.
