Ms. Nichole's Inc. Smyrna
Toddler, Preschool and After School Care
The MNI Smyrna Facility accepts toddler, preschool and after school children ages 1-13. We are the largest DHS certified 3 Star Rated facility in Middle Tennessee. All Ms. Nichole's locations are licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and monitored several times throughout the year. We maintain the rules and regulations enforced by DHS.
Bumble Bees (Ages 12-23 months)
At this developmental stage, toddlers are full of energy and love to explore. Ms. Nichole's toddler classroom is designed to channel that energy and excitement into learning. They are able to discover and learn though our sensory-based classroom at MNI. Children are provided with encouragement, appropriate space and opportunities to further enhance their development.
Butterflies (Ages 24 months-35 months)
Children at this age discover the world around them and it becomes a fun amazing place. MNI helps to enhance this curiosity and give them the guidance and tools they need to develop to their full potential. In this program children are allowed to explore their surroundings while in a safe and secure environment. Social interaction and age appropriate activities are designed to be fun and encouraging.

Children are our number one priority and their safety is our first and foremost concern. When students reach our facility parent receive a text or e-mail alert to let them know their child has arrived at Ms. Nichole's. This one of a kind system gives our parents peace of mind.
Once the children arrive at Ms. Nichole's they rotate around our 10,500 sq. ft. facility in an age appropriate group. A typical day at Ms. Nichole consists of: group game in our gym, outside play, homework with a certified tutor, curriculum projects, afternoon snack, and play time in our playroom which includes eight different centers.
Ms. Nichole's staff members are required to have a minimum of twenty-one training hours throughout the year. In addition to these training hours, we require staff to be CPR and First Aid Certified. These additional requirements exceed the expectoration set by DHS.
