THE Children’s Academy Columbia, TN - Hospitots


Hospitots opened in 1988 as a benefit for the employees of Maury Regional Medical Center located in Columbia, Tennessee.

Hospitots holds the distinction of being the:

  • First employer sponsored early education and care program in Maury County
  • First 3 star rated program in Maury County
  • First Nationally Accredited program in Maury County

Parents who are employed by Maury Regional Medical Center or its affiliates may enroll their children and any children for whom they have legal guardianship who are between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years.

At Hospitots we provide a secure, loving environment that exceeds expectations. Our daily focus is the educational, emotional, social, physical and cognitive development of each child.

Our kindergarten readiness begins in the earliest years and builds each year to Pre Kindergarten classes that prepare children for success in public and private schools. With this program, we are confident that each child will have an early education foundation that instills confidence, knowledge and self-assurance; giving them the building blocks for success and a lifelong love of learning.

Hospitots is the leader in early education programs in Maury County. The faculty of Hospitots generously shares their expertise with the community by serving as a clinical site for Child Development Associate (CDA) candidate, student nurses from Columbia State Community College and other programs seeking national accreditation.
