Meet our owners
Hello. Please allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Hudson and Betsy Gray. We own The Village Preschools and Early Education Centers. We have a wonderful daughter, Jennifer and two beautiful grandchildren, Lexi and Justin. Jennifer is the Director of our St.B location. We are a family owned and oriented business. We strive to provide the highest quality care and most developmentally appropriate educational enrichment for children in our program. Hudson, Jennifer and I have over 40 years of combined experience in Early Childhood Education. We have the background and knowledge to combine our high quality program attributes and still provide affordable care for your child. We believe that each child is unique and should be respected as an individual with individual needs and desires. Children learn through many different methods. It is our job to nurture each child’s natural curiosity and desire to learn. We want to make learning fun for your child so it will become a lifelong journey. We operate the four centers with the help of an on site Director and Office Manager at each location. It is important to us to work from within the centers and coordinate closely with each center’s Administration. This insures that our high standard of quality is being maintained.
We strongly support and have great admiration for our Military and their families. Our troops are too often separated from their families and comforts of home while defending the freedom of all Americans. They make tremendous sacrifices so that we may go about our daily lives enjoying many things we sometimes take for granted. Thank you to these brave men and women for their tireless effort in the armed forces.
We share our home with 2 Great Pyrenees Sugar and Rasta along with a small Sheltie named Tillie. Sugar was adopted from Montgomery Co. Animal Control just hours before she was to be euthanized. Rasta came from Mid-South Great Pyrenees Rescue. Tillie was barely 2 and pregnant with her second litter of puppies. She was rescued from a Sheltie puppy mill in Nashville. We also foster dogs for Big Fluffy Dog Rescue Based in Nashville. We encourage adoption from shelters. There are great animals in shelters, rescues and foster homes in need of a forever home. Please consider one when looking for your family pet. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We look forward to meeting you and would be honored if given the privilege of caring for your child.
