About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Charlotte
Welcome to Childcare Network on Woodlawn Road in Charlotte, NC. My name is Demerye Shingler and I am proud to be the Director. I have worked with Childcare Network since 2009 and have earned a Master’s Degree in Education.
We pride ourselves on being so much more than a daycare; we are a high quality, educational preschool. We strive daily to create a family friendly learning environment that supports every child. Our teachers and staff are always ready to serve as a resource to our families.
Children enrolled in our programs are excited about learning! While we know that literacy and math skills are important, studies show that healthy lifestyles are also key to future success. We want to send our boys and girls off to kindergarten with healthy minds and bodies and ready to excel. We incorporate these ideas into each classroom, including our NC Pre-K classrooms.
While we are not a tutorial program, the learning doesn’t stop once your child begins elementary school. Our Adventure Summer Camp balances fun and learning with educational field trips and activities. Some places we visit are Discovery Place, local parks, Zootastic, and Northcross Lanes. The children are encouraged to work their minds and bodies!
To make sure our children are energized and ready to move, we provide a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack that is prepared on site. With assistance from the USDA Food Program, we are able to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables and plenty of milk into our menus.
We invite you to come and tour our school where you will have the chance to meet our teachers, visit our classrooms, and see how much your child can grow with us.
