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!



Both of our children attend Tot’s Academy and they love it! They are excited to go in the morning and they have smiles on their faces when they get picked up at the end of the day. As a parent, I feel very good about our decision to send our boys there. I know that they are getting healthy meals, developing excellent social skills, and are very well taken care of every day. The staff at Tot’s Academy are excellent, the facility is beautiful, and I would highly recommend Tot’s Academy to any parent seeking child care.
