Cedar Bluff Play SchoolAbout Our School
Cedar Bluff Play School is a child care center that provides infant, toddler, and pre-school care. We are a pre-school learning center providing education for the children with a prepared curriculum as a basis for our instruction. It is the purpose of our center to provide education and a safe, loving environment for the children in our care. We are as flexible as possible and meet the individual needs of our families in a professional and caring manner.
Cedar Bluff Play School was founded by Jean D. Ford, and opened in October 1970 with a total enrollment of fifteen children. The center grew, enrollment multiplied, and the additions to the building were made. Many children and families have been cared for at CBPS throughout the years. We are blessed to have second and third generation children of parents who themselves attended CBPS. In 2018 the business received new owners, Tony and Nichole Ringer. They are updating the building, but will instill the same philosophy that has made the center successful. The philosophy of caring, giving, and providing individual care and respect is ongoing and has served us well. We have a unique history in that we have successfully operated our business for nearly fifty years in one location with many changes in our area and the world. We believe our longevity is directly related to the caring people who have worked for Cedar Bluff Play School over the years
What We Stand For

We endeavor for every day to be exciting and filled with happy voices, welcome greetings, warm hugs, and loving relationships. Our goal is to create an environment that will have longevity in the community and have a positive influence on the lives of those who pass through our doors long after they leave our care.
We Are Providing an Environment for Our Students to Grow & Excel
Cedar Bluff Play School’s six classrooms offer programs for infants, toddlers, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds and pre-k. Each of our classrooms has two teachers/educators. The State of Tennessee has requirements for staff/children ratios. We meet those requirements and often employ more staff than the State requires.

What Parents are Saying
"I love Cedar Bluff Play School! The teachers are the best! When we first enrolled my children were hesitant and would cry when I dropped them off. After a week or two they were so happy that they would run in to their teachers and at the end of the day they didn’t want to leave. The teachers became my children’s best friends. I could not be happier!"
"Cedar Bluff Play School has been absolutely wonderful for my children. Our oldest attended the child care center from 2 months until he went to kindergarten. He was always happy to go to school and it was evident he felt loved and supported there. We had zero reservations trusting them with our youngest. The staff is excellent!"
"I was not at all excited to have our daughter (3 mos at the time) in any infant care program, but her mother and I both work full-time. We checked-out four different facilities and decided on Cedar Bluff Play School. We've been quite pleased since day one and don't regret our decision one bit. I would highly recommend Cedar Bluff Play School!" -Byron W.
