Testimonials
I myself worked in childcare for 12 years prior to my son being born with a disability. In all of those years I never encountered a director that was so kind, caring, and thoroughly concerned with the well being of every student left within her care as Ashley was. She went above and beyond with not only my child but every single child I saw her interact with. She never raised her voice and was quick to get down on the level of the child. Ashley, unlike any other director I have ever known, was very quick to accommodate the individual needs (physical and emotional) of the children. She made my ...

Welcome to our wonderful child care center in Callaway, Florida! My name is Shannon Gilray and I am proud to be the Director of Childcare Network #115. I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Family and Child Sciences with a concentration of Education in May of 2013, as well as my Director’s Credential in child care management.

At our school, our mission is to provide a warm, safe environment where children are learning through hands-on exploration through HighReach curriculum. HighReach provides a fun, exciting, and rich learning environment to achieve the ultimate goal, which is making our children eager learners.  In addition to growing minds, we promote growing bodies through our USDA food program meals and snacks.

We accept children ranging from six weeks to twelve years, year round. During the school year, we have a challenging VPK program for any child who has turned four by September 1 of that school year. Our mission is to prepare these children for kindergarten the following year. For our school-age children, we have an afterschool program for children who attend Tyndall Elementary, Parker Elementary, or Callaway Elementary which includes to and from transportation. For our school-agers during the summer, we offer our Adventure Camp which is the perfect combination of education, discovery, and fun! Each week brings a new theme for your child’s imagination to encounter including field trips around the area to places such as WonderWorks, Zoo World, and the Florida Caverns.

We invite you and your children to come by our center to tour the building, see our busy classrooms in action, and meet our awesome, loving teachers. Every day we are accomplishing great things and learning new material; we would love for another young learner to join our family. I cannot wait to meet another leader of our future! The adventure awaits you!  

See you soon!
