Hospitots is a Columbia daycare center that strives to provide a secure and loving environment to every child that walks through its doors. In addition to being an affiliate of The Children’s Academy, Hospitots is a preschool and daycare that carries a lot of history. Opening in 1988, Hospitots originally served as a preschool and daycare center for the children of the Maury Regional Medical Center employees. In the span of 30 years, Hospitots proudly holds many distinctions, including:

  • The first employer-sponsored early education and care program in Maury County.
  • The first 3-star rated preschool and daycare program in Maury County.
  • The first Nationally Accredited program in Maury County.

Although our facility and staff have grown throughout the years, Hospitots still lends their services to parents employed at Maury Regional Medical Center. We welcome any parent who’s employed at the Maury Regional Medical Center–and its affiliates–to enroll their children in our top-tier Columbia daycare and preschool center.

Hospitots Is Focused on Your Child’s Development, Success, and Happiness

As a nationally accredited preschool in Columbia, Tennessee  provides students with a secure and loving environment that exceeds all standards. The daily focus within our Columbia daycare and preschool classes is the continuous development of each child–educationally, emotionally, socially, physically, and cognitively. For our infants, toddlers, and two-year-olds, we offer our The Creative Curriculum which is specially adjusted to conform to the needs of each age group. As a whole, The Creative Curriculum focuses on every aspect of child care. Our staff manages daily routines, creates a responsive environment, and builds partnerships with families.

Unlike many other daycare and preschool centers, Hospitots opens its doors to children as young as 6 weeks of age and all the way through pre-kindergarten. With a diversity in age, our Columbia daycare and preschool services are carefully adjusted to support each group. Hospitots’ kindergarten readiness begins in the earliest years and builds each year, leading up to our pre-kindergarten curriculum. Our special classes prepare and promote the future success in both private and public schools. With our nationally accredited program, the staff and faculty of Hospitots are confident that each of our tiny students will receive an early education that instills knowledge, self-assurance, and most importantly, confidence in themselves! We provide each child with the building blocks for success, as well as a lifelong love of learning.

faculty and staff members that are educated, experience, and share a love for inspiring the minds of children. Additionally, the talented faculty of Hospitots generously shares their expertise with the community by serving as a clinical site for the Child Development Associate candidate (CDA), student nurses from Columbia State Community College, and a number of other programs who are seeking national accreditation.

Mrs. Janie Richardson, Hospitots’ Administrative Director, also serves on the Early Childhood Program development committee at Columbia State Community College.
