Welcome to Swiss Avenue KinderCare in Nashville, Tennessee. Our teachers embrace a balanced approach to learning-which gives parents confidence that their child will have fun as he or she develops socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Here at Swiss Avenue KinderCare we believe that our center is an extension of the home. We welcome parents and grandparents to take active roles in helping us develop your child. We encourage open lines of communication.
Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.
At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.
As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.
Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.
The Cooking Adventures program gives children opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. They will learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and the importance of a healthy diet. The curriculum includes lessons on picnics, pizza, and heart-healthy meals.
The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height, and weight. He will learn about shapes and solids. He will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and count money. Math is everywhere and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.
Ongoing research proves that early exposure to music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children will laugh and learn about rhythm, vocal melodies, and a variety of musical genres and instruments, which can lower stress and advance memory. Learning never sounded so good.
Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.
Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

Thank you for the wonderful care you give my daughter, and thank you for the wonderful care you gave my older daughter. I am not writing this letter because I intend to withdraw – on the contrary, I am writing it to say thank you before my daughter finishes her last months with KinderCare and goes to Kindergarten. I often tell people how much I love Swiss Avenue KinderCare, and I don’t think I tell you enough! I have been using Swiss Avenue KinderCare for six years now, and you and your staff have been consistently great. I feel that my older daughter, was well prepared for Kindergarten. She is in second grade now and is doing very well socially and academically. My younger daughter has also flourished. She is learning a lot, and I love that she has fun and learns while she is in daycare! I also really love the Phonics program and feel it is worth the cost. Kindergarten is more challenging academically than I thought it would be, and I feel that your educational program plus Phonics helps give kids a leg up. I love your staff. They are friendly, helpful, attentive, and caring. And, it is very impressive that many of them have been at KinderCare as long as my children have been coming! I recommend Swiss Avenue KinderCare to other parents whenever I have the opportunity. They visited and have agreed with me that it is a great daycare!
