We welcome you and your child to the toddler classroom. We are so glad you are here at Big Fish Academy. We look forward to getting to know you and your child. Our toddler classrooms are fun and interactive spaces that help your toddler learn through play and social interactions with their peers. We will work on milestones such as social/emotional skills, language and communication skills, cognitive learning and problem solving, and movement and physical development.

Hello! I'm Addison, I was born and raised here in Tennessee. I am nineteen years old and have always had a soft spot for kids. I want to pursue videography as a career. I enjoy teaching and seeing kids grasp new information. In my free time, I like to  play guitar and write my own songs. I also film weddings, as well as videos that I plan out and edit! I am excited to be a part of The Big Fish family!
