What Our Families are Saying

I would most definitely recommend ABC Children’s Academy! They are amazing with the kiddos and from personal experience, two of my children had the ability to grow and learn from the most amazing staff there. The teachers here set a good, firm foundation for the kids, and make learning fun. My daughters have built a bond with their teachers that will last a lifetime! I could not be any happier for my children to have attended ABC Children’s Academy.

Me and my daughter both love the Clarksville location my daughter attends the one at the primary school and her teachers are the sweetest they care for her and love on her and pay attention to her emotions. She learned so much last year and is going back this year! They do lots of arts and crafts and made a portfolio to send home at the end of the year for me to keep. I never had any issues reaching anyone with questions and everything was always very professional. My daughter loved her teachers so much she never wanted to leave!

– Hannah Myers

I highly recommend ABC Children’s Academy. All 4 of my grandchildren have attended and the care that they received was next level. The school was able to help us identify some therapy needs and when it all seemed so overwhelming, they were instrumental in getting everything going for us. and because of that Early intervention, when they started Kindergarten they no longer required therapy. If you are looking for high quality child care ABC should be your first choice.
