Little Oaks Academy currently has space available for students in our preschool classrooms! Children are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis depending upon availability of space in the age grouping required with children who have siblings in the Academy given priority. If space is not available then a request to be added to the call-back list may be made. A non-refundable $75.00 enrollment fee will secure the next available opening and is required with all applications.

Before enrollment, each parent must complete an application and accompanying packet which contains certain required forms and also tour the center/receive an orientation. All children must have a current Department of Health Certificate of Immunization before admission.  Children under the age of thirty months must have proof of a physical examination that was completed within three months prior to their date of enrollment. At enrollment parents will be given an ID code which will gain entrance to the building.  Parents will also scan their fingerprint in order to check their child in and out using our computerized system.

To schedule a tour, please contact our office at 865-545-8322.


Our rates are comparable to other quality child care centers in town. Tuition rates are set to provide exceptional education and recruit qualified and highly motivated teachers. Please call our office for specific rates. In addition to the non-refundable $75.00 registration fee per child at enrollment, an annual supply fee is applied to each child’s account in August or pro-rated quarterly. There is a multiple-child discount for each additional child (full-time only). We offer a two-week vacation allowance (half-price) and summer break rates-half off tuition for the months of June and/or July and your child’s space is still guaranteed in the fall.
