Providing Reliable, Safe Drop-In Child Care Since 1999

About Us

The Langham Family started The Children’s Playroom in 1999 to help parents who need high-quality, part-time child care for their children. They walked the halls of the Tennessee State Legislature to change the law to increase the hours that drop-in centers could care for children from 10 hours a week to 20. The Langhams and a dedicated team of top-notch Caregivers are committed to providing a safe, clean, and fun environment for all children that visit. 

What is Drop-In Childcare?

We like to refer to ourselves as a drop-in playcare because our main goal is for your children to have as much fun as possible while they are in our care!

Our drop-in childcare facilities are held to high safety standards. Our Caregivers are fingerprint background checked, CPR & First Aid certified, undergo annual training to receive childhood education credits, and have years of experience working with children.

We are licensed by the State of Tennessee, which includes announced and unannounced inspections every year. 

We have games, toys, and activities for children of all ages! We accept Children 6 weeks to 12 years old, and no reservations are required for 15 months and older. In our program, we do not have “spots” and you never have to sign a contract. If you need us, come in and we’ll be happy to serve you!
