Inspiring Kids Toward Greatness
Regency Offers On-Site Daycare Services Morristown
Regency Retirement Village of Morristown is excited to have the sound of young, energetic children ringing in the halls as a result of housing Regency Senior Living’s first child daycare– Regency Kids & Company.
Regency Kids & Company exists to help serve our dedicated Regency employees, as well as the residents of Hamblen County and beyond, by offering daycare services Morristown. Of course caring for our senior residents remains very much a key part of our purpose, but now we can grow our family. We also love the inherent opportunities provided through this extension of services, opportunities for our residents to benefit from time shared with our childcare students, and the joys that will spring for such interactions.

Rita Wood, Daycare Director
Meet Our Director
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Rita Wood is a strong family woman— a loving wife, a caring mother of three, and a nurturing spirit to each young student she works with. With a strong desire to help young minds learn and grow and find their special talents, she received her Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati. In 2002, she began working as a preschool teacher in a three-year-old classroom at Sally’s Preschool. In 2004, Rita was asked to take over as owner and director of that same preschool, while also continuing in her role as a teacher. Over time, she developed Sally’s Preschool into a well-known early-learning center for young kids throughout the West Side of Cincinnati, where she served for more than 17 years. The kids had a blast with Miss Rita every single day!
In 2019, Rita and her husband made the decision to relocate to East Tennessee. While it was difficult saying goodbye to her students and community, Rita has fallen in love with the laidback, easy-going lifestyle Tennessee offers, and spends many summer days resting and reading by her pool. Wanting to return to her passion, though, Rita began searching for a way to once again work with kids. Rita has now been given the opportunity to once again build a safe, caring, and joyous space for young children. She is so grateful for the chance to continue her work as the Daycare Director at Regency Kids & Company.
