Tots’ Academy has been in existence in the Enfield community since the early 1980’s. It has gone from a tiny Head Start program run in a basement of a house to now this beautiful new building, with many changes in between.

In 1999, co-founder and Director for over 25 years, Christine MacAskill, made the decision to turn Tots’ Academy into a Not-for-Profit Society to be called Tots’ Academy Child Care Society that will be overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. Board volunteers serve a 2 year term.

From 1999 to 2012, Tots’ Academy Child Care Society was located at the old EH Horne school in Enfield. In April of 2012, we finally moved into our own beautiful building on Highway #2. This building is licensed for 96 children from the ages of 18 months to 12 years of age. We have lots of room and some extra space that we never had in other facilities. One being a great gym area for the children to get that gross motor activity in even when the weather is not cooperating. Our backyard space is massive with lots of space for all the children to play and explore for hours!



When we moved our children to Tot’s they were 4 ½ and 2. We were able to notice the difference right away. Our son started coming home with science experiments and was excited to show us how it worked. He had been diagnosed with ADHD and Tot’s was and is extremely accommodating and understanding with him. Our daughter is doing very well also; she is becoming quite the little artist and Tot’s has even put an easel outside for her.
