The newly opened Early Learning Preschool is a creative, educationally-based option for childcare in Shelbyville.

The classrooms are large, and the playground is even bigger. The staff is comprised of degreed instructors, whose goal is to tap into each little student's creative capabilities.

The Early Learning Preschool is located next to Shelbyville Central High School. This campus includes the Child Development Center, which serves children with developmental disabilities. However, Early Childhood Director, Teresa Winnette is excited for the opportunity to serve a new groups of students.

"This campus serves many purposes, so this is just an expansion of who we are,*"" Winnette said. *""We want to expand our service and offer our expertise to all children within the community."*"

The staff at Early Learning Preschool is truly skilled, and must go through extensive training each year to maintain their certifications with the Department of Education. They have developed a fully-interactive, educational program to utilize at the school, and are anxious for their first students.

The school's curriculum includes the Frog Street Press, but will grow with time. They have also planned special enrichment programs including dance, Spanish language, yoga and cooking classes, and will eventually add art and music classes.

Early Learning Preschool manager Beth Nicholson is thrilled to offer this new learning experience to the children of Bedford County.

"I'm excited to see the program grow into a very creative, but academically-based program for our community,"*"she said.

The school is now accepting students from 18 months to 4 years old at an introductory rate of only $95 per week. The Early Learning Preschool's hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. To inquire about an application, call 684-9203 or email to beth.nicholson@cdctn.org.
