OUR DISTINCTIONS: Holding to excellence in early education, the teaching staff at EVELC, hold (at a minimum) a degree in early childhood education (or a related field) or are working toward one. The center has received the highest 3 Star rating from the Tennessee Department of Human Services in all seven assessment areas.  Our staff provide child led and interactive learning activities each day addressing the following areas of development:

• Social/emotional

• Fine and gross motor skills

• Cognitive skills

• Adaptive/self help

• Language skills


Our classroom environments are set up to be developmentally appropriate for all children. This is made possible by our center’s distinctions, including:

• Inclusive classrooms

• Active parental involvement

• A low student-to-teacher ratio

• Highly educated and dedicated staff

• Excellence in early education

• Comprehensive assessments of each child’s development provided annually  


We love that our daughters are not only being provided excellent care while we’re not with them but that they are truly learning new things each day.  The director and staff have been amazing to our family.  We really enjoy the family events that EVELC hosts, like the fall festival, family water play day, winter program, etc. that provide families an opportunity to spend more time with their kids at the center.”  — Lynn G.
