Why Us?

Hello, welcome to Shaneann's Early Learning Center, LLC. The staff at Shaneann's is a group of dedicated individuals who believe in helping children in the early years of their development. We help children socially, physically, and emotionally. The staff at our center is compassionate, observant, and naturally nurturing. All staff has had a criminal and FIA clearance and there is always an onsite staff member who is trained in CPR and First Aid.

At Shaneann's the staff works to create a homelike environment where our focus is on learning and helping children feel safe and secure. Our primary goal is that children have fun while in our care. Our belief is that children learn through play and we offer many chances for them to be creative and explore.

We strongly believe in the importance of early childhood development, which is why all toys in the center have an educational purpose. This then makes learning a fun and exciting adventure for the children. We believe the most important element of the infant/toddler room environment is an available and responsible caregiver. Any person who has cared for toddlers knows that they are a challenging age group and must have undivided attention, as well as interaction in small groups. We believe that adults set the overall tone in terms of the socio-emotional quality of the environment while furniture, toys, and supplies determine the tone of the physical environment.

We believe communication between parent and teacher is of extreme importance and we strive to be good communicators to offer you information regarding how your child's day went. We do this both verbally and for the younger children: "daily activity sheets" are sent home. We encourage you to share openly any concerns or questions that may arise. It is important to all of us that there is a similar child care philosophy between the parents and staff.

No matter what age your child is, if there are any special issues you want to address such as; allergies, length of naps or eating habits we want you to feel free to discuss them with us. We want you to feel comfortable when dropping your child off with us and we will help you in any way possible to meet that goal. At Shaneann's we have an open door policy and welcome parents to stop in at any time. We will work to the best of our ability to meet the needs of all children.

Our History

Our History

Shaneann's started in 1984 as an in home center. After 23 years of caring for many children and building relationships with families we decided to grow outside of the home. We started a Center in 2007 and within two years had two centers. After 11 years in business we saw the need to move into a larger building to reach more families.

Happy Clients

​​Shaneann's feels that our Clients are part of our family. We strive to make them all feel comfortable while they are at work. We would like to thank them all for trusting use to care for their most precious gifts.
