"Fannie Battle Day Home for Children is the second oldest childcare center in the United States. The Day Home exists to continue the mission set forth by Fannie Battle in 1891. We endeavor to provide an invaluable service to children from low-income and/or single-parent families who are working or furthering their education in order to maintain their independence. Our mission is to provide quality childcare that encourages the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development of each child in a safe and happy environment. Fannie Battle is licensed by the State of Tennessee receiving the highest 3-Star rating and is also a United Way of Middle Tennessee funded agency. Fannie Battle also participates in the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee's GivingMatters.
