Your child's home away from home.

Our Philosophy

Shaneann’s Early Learning Center, LLC believes young children learn best by doing. Shaneann’s provides an environment that allows children to discover, explore, create, and manipulate according to their interests. This approach helps children develop socially, emotionally, creatively, and intellectually at their own pace.

We are a  Great Start to Quality certified center, which helps families find the best early learning settings for their children and helps educators improve the care they give to children.
