Get to Know Us

The James family created Kids Cove Drop-In Child Care from the aspiration of providing high quality child care at a moments notice. 

As an innovative childcare center for children aged 6 months to 12 years, Kids Cove Drop-In Child Care provides a fun, clean, and safe environment in which your child will thrive. Our facility has been organized into learning centers that promote development of cognitive, social/emotional, language, math, and literacy skills.

We are licensed by the State of TN along with being Female and Military Veteran owned. We support all Armed Forces of the United States and give a 10% discount on all prices onsite with supporting ID! We will also honor 10% discounts to emergency personnel, educators/teachers, students, and members of the Knoxville Bar Association (Updated 8/1/23).
