Cambridge Early Learning Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Set for August 12

Event celebrates the newest pre-K expansion in Metro Schools

WHAT: The Antioch and Cane Ridge areas are gathering to celebrate the completion of the Cambridge Early Learning Center, which represents Metro School’s first pre- K hub in Nashville’s southeast community.

The Cambridge Early Learning Center features eight classrooms that provide a high-quality, play-based curriculum designed to support the development of children as a whole and prepare children for kindergarten. The center has partnered with non-profits like Plant the Seed to provide garden-based educational programs and Global Education Center to provide multicultural dance- and music-based programs to give students interactive educational experiences.

The Cambridge Early Learning Center is supported by Metro Schools’ federal preschool development grant, which has played an integral part in the advancement of early childhood education for children and families in Davidson County and Metro Schools. The grant has expanded access to high-quality preschool programs by adding new classrooms and strengthening the quality of existing classrooms.
