Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center celebrates childhood! Play is the work of children. Young children learn best when given opportunities to select activities that encourage interactive play within a teacher-planned environment. Differing levels of ability are expected, appreciated, and used to design learning experiences.

Because families are the first and primary teachers of their young children, we strive to provide opportunities for all levels of family participation. A strong family

rofessional partnership is essential for successful programming.

We view children as developing individuals who deserve the respect of the adults in their world.
