Construction for a new daycare center in Mt. Juliet is underway. The Academy of Mt. Juliet, for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years, will open at 6001 Sire Ave.
A recent release from The Academy stated that there is no set opening date yet for the Mt. Juliet location, but is anticipated for mid-late December. The center will operate 5 days a week from 7:00a.m.-6:00p.m.
Known for its award-winning programs, The Academy offers structured and enhancement-rich programs to children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. Children are prepared for kindergarten while having fun. The development center has two new locations set to open soon, one of those locations being in Mt. Juliet. The Academy operates 11 locations in the Middle Tennessee area, and close to 30 facilities total in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana. The Academy also announced a new location in Brentwood, The Academy of Holly Tree Gap, will open.
Childcare is a growing issue in Middle Tennessee. The cost of childcare itself and the limited availability has made it the top concern for parents in the Middle Tennessee area, according to the Chamber of Commerce, which keeps a running report on emerging and existing issues that have arisen during the pandemic.
