Besides Kristys review, I do believe that the other reviews are meant for another place and not ours. We have NEVER had anyone smoke pot around our center and we do not have a Tiffany W that could have made changes in staff or anything else for that matter. That leads me to believe the reviews that have been left are for another center.

My daughter first started La Petite Academy at 15 months old at the Emory Rd location. The staff and the curriculum were excellent. Since then, all three of my children have continued to excel and thrive at different locations in Knoxville. Currently, my children attend the Farragut location where the teachers are just fabulous. I am so in love with La Petite's curriculum and staff, that I also left my job (several months after enrolling my first child) to be part of a team that truly cares about meeting the needs of each child and family. I have nothing but love for La Petite Academy!
My daughters have been going to Tracys for 3 years (oldest started in preschool B and youngest started in the infant room). Tracy and her staff provide a lot of love and flexibility to us and our children. My kids love to be there, have formed string bonds with the children their age and my oldest was more than school ready when it came time for enrollment. They make every effort to be open when there is inclement weather, notify you immediately if something is going on worth your child, and after you've been there for a year you get a grace week for vacation which is unheard of. If you are looking for strictly professional, stuffy, etc...this is not your place. If you want compassion, family style care that provides love and builds your little people into amazing kiddos then I'd recommend Tracy's. As with any childcare you have to find what works for you and it may not always be a good fit, but we love it and we love Ms. Tracy, Angie, Michelle, Amanda, Mikaela, Kayla, Tabitha and Teshia!
Both my kids have been going for there for 3 years and Tracy and her staff have been wonderful to us. The environment is homelike, not stuffy and overly "professional "....but that's what drew us in. We started in a home setting with a provider that went south very quickly and I assure you I know what bad care looks like. What we get from Tracy and the staff at TLC is nothing short of wonderful. I understand it's not a great fit for everyone so I hope you find what you are looking for in childcare because it's important that you feel comfortable leaving your kiddos. All that being said, I would encourage anyone to stop by during the day and see what is happening....I've done this and my kids are always doing some learning activity or fun group thing and the staff have been wonderful to us.
This has been a wonderful day care for my son. The staff really get to know your kids and care about them personally. It's family oriented and small enough that the kids spend time together outside the daycare hours at events, sleep overs, birthday parties etc. Miss Tracy and her staff keep the after school kids super busy during the summer on a variety of fun field trips. I would recommend this facility to anyone who wants a smaller environment where their kids are cared for by people who become friends.
Tracy's is a great place to have your child. My child has been going since he was 1.5 years old and is now 6. I trust them with him...period. The staff is wonderful and keeps me informed of everything. They work with him on his homework, too, which helps with my busy schedule as a business owner. Tracy has been a blessing over the years by building a lasting trust which you cannot find in many businesses. My child loves going and looks forward to their summer camp program every year. Thank you to all who have worked there over the years assisting in caring for my child.
My daughter started at TLC at age 2. We could not be happier with a school! The past 3 years have been full of structured learning in a Christian environment. We definitely recommend this school!
Both my boys love it here the oldest ask every day to go back he has alot of fun when he goes
Everyone here is wonderful! They really care about the children and are even great dealing with needy parents like me!
My daughter has blossomed into such a smart little person since starting here! couldnt be any happier!
