The Holly Tree Legacy



Since 1979, Holly Tree has been providing families with quality child care and preschool. Offering a non-denominational, Christian-based curriculum, parents find excellence in care and in early education.

Owned by our parent company, Never Grow Up, Inc., we are privately operated. Never Grow Up, Inc. owns nearly 30 child development centers in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana, including The Academy Child Development Centers and Preschools of Middle Tennessee. Never Grow Up, Inc. is committed to providing a child care and preschool option for parents who want only the best for their children. With long standing success, Holly Tree is certain that you and your family will want to come grow with us. Stop by and visit any of our three locations today!

The Holly Tree Difference:

  • Nationally recognized and award winning academic curriculum
  • One-of-a-kind, non-denominational Christian program
  • Degreed and experienced teachers and staff
  • Nutritious meals and snacks included
  • Separate, spacious, and age-appropriate gated playgrounds
  • Center-wide classroom surveillance system (at certain locations)
  • Secure coded entry system
  • Enrichment classes, such as music appreciation and computer skills (optional)
  • Three convenient locations in Williamson and Davidson counties


We ensure our Holly Tree teachers are of the highest quality.  All teachers are carefully selected based on their education and experience.  Teachers are all CPR and First Aid Certified, certified in Baby Sign Language, and trained in SIDS Prevention among other accreditations.  Continued education and training is an essential part of our commitment to offering the highest quality of care and the finest faith-based preschool education.

Unlike any other private preschool, Holly Tree is proud to provide a dedicated, on-site Children’s Minister.  Our Children’s Minister not only conducts our Christian Enrichment Program, but is also available spiritually to families through Branches Ministries (our own non-profit ministry of support for staff and families of Never Grow Up, Inc.).

Families and Fellowship

Holly Tree is not just a place for children! You will find that Holly Tree is a community of families. With activities and programs designed to enhance family togetherness, Holly Tree offers many unique opportunities for families to come together. We take pride in recognizing and supporting the wonderful role of family in a child’s development.

In addition to weekly chapel and Christian Enrichment classes for the children, Holly Tree invites you to join in fun fellowship activities and programs for the whole family, including JAM picnics and dinners, prayer request days, Drop-In Devotionals, and annual events such as our Christmas program and Easter Egg-stravaganza.
