Defining a “school” in Memphis can be challenging. We’ve got parents day out, daycares, preschools, private schools, “regular” public schools and Optional programs. This site used to have multiple posts for each “type” of school, and there was so much overlap (like preschools that have daycare-like hours and private schools that start at age 2) that in 2014 I opted to scrap all that and invest in a Directory plug-in for the site. Then in 2016 I partnered with the Memphis School Guide to utilize their K-12 school database.
So now if you want to research a K-12 school utilize the EMM Memphis School Guide and research full- and part-time childcare options for babies through kindergarten utilize the EMM PDO/Preschool/Daycare Directory. If you don’t see a school here and want it reviewed please add it yourself, or contact me and I’ll add it for you.
Each PDO/Preschool/Daycare listing includes the following, and schools can pick multiple options in each category:
- School Age/Grade: babies, age 1, age 2, age 3, age 4, age 5, K
- School Type: public, private
- Location: Bartlett/Lakeland, Cordova/Germantown, Collierville, East Memphis, Midtown
- School Week: 5 days, 1-4 days
- School Day: work day, full school day (typically ending the day at 2 or 3pm), half day (ending around noon)
- Early/Late Care: none, early care, after care
So if you want a half-day program for a three year old you can find that (I just checked and there are over 10 listed right now). If you want work-hours care for a two year old you can find that (I just did and got 8 listings). It’s all there, and please help everyone out and review all the schools your children have recently attended! For tips on how to select a school check out this post.
