Spring Hill Commemorates Ten Years in the Community
Spring Hill, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2014 -- Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” This week celebrates the ten-year anniversary of a Spring Hill couple pursuing their dream. On November 10, 2004, Perry and Patsy Coghlan opened their doors at Spring Hill Academy Preschool. This Texas-raised family spent the better part of twenty years moving from Ohio to Florida to Illinois to Tennessee to learn how to run a successful preschool centered on God. They relocated to middle Tennessee in December of 1999, and established firm roots in Spring Hill in the spring of 2000.
On the first day of operation, the school had a total of five students and one teacher besides Perry and Patsy. Today the school is home to over 125 students with a student-teacher ratio of 8 to 1. The mission has remained constant for the past ten years. SHAP is a ministry dedicated to serving families with young children. Their goal is to instill in their students the love of Jesus and the love of learning. The school is well known regionally for teaching children to read BEFORE kindergarten.
Spring Hill Academy Preschool is an affordable option for potty-trained toddlers to kindergartners in the area. They remain the only preschool in the area to be under the authority of the Department of Education, as opposed to the Department of Child Services. Thus, SHAP is held to higher standards of operation and education. Their kindergarten class allows for a smooth transition from the preschool stage to the elementary stage through the consistency of being united under one school.
Where is SHAP located? 2001 Campbell Station Pkwy, Spring Hill, TN 37174
What is SHAP’s cost? Anniversary Special: $139 per week (for all enrollments before January 1, 2015)
When is SHAP open? 6:30 am-6:00 pm, Monday-Friday

Owner, Patsy Coghlan, said her favorite part of working with the children, “…is watching the children’s eyes light up with excitement when they are able to remember their letters or read a book for the first time.” Spring Hill Academy Preschool is dedicated to serving their community, families, and student with excellence and love and joy!
