About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Jacksonville
Welcome to our wonderful child care center here in beautiful Jacksonville, NC. My name is Shannon Loy and I am the school’s director. I have my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and my Birth to Kindergarten License from the University of North Carolina Greensboro. I have over 21 years of experience working in Early Childhood and child care and I have absolutely loved every minute of it!
Our staff here is just amazing. They are educated, caring and love the children in our care. The teachers have NC credentials, BSAC, and degrees in Early Childhood Education or related fields of study.
In addition to open communication between our school and you, we also have a fantastic curriculum that is age appropriate for each child. The use of our structured High Reach Learning curriculum enhances the learning experiences to make learning fun! Our curriculum and daily activities ensure that we are meeting the educational and developmental goals of each child. Our focused literacy skills include language development, print awareness, writing skills, and fostering a love of reading and learning during the most critical period of brain development. Research shows that children arriving to Kindergarten with developed early literacy skills are more likely to become successful students. Our Pre-Kindergarten Prep Academy and our Kindergarten Prep Academy, (our pre-k program for children ages 3 to 5 years of age) are provided a print-rich environment to prepare them for elementary reading.
We work closely with our community, parents, staff, and even local school systems, to provide the day time care for your child. I would love to invite you and your family to stop by and take a tour of our school, visit with our staff, and have the opportunity to ask questions. We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
