Mission & Vision

 

The vision of Early Learning Shelby County is to provide unified leadership, support and guidance to ensure that all children of our community enter school healthy and well cared for and ready to succeed in school and in life.


The key to unlocking the potential of our community lies within each and every child that lives here and will eventually become an adult.

​Our Staff



Since 2017, we have contributed to the development of the 3,000+ young children in the Shelby County area by bringing together talented leaders across a variety of health care, education, civic and business industries. Our research is centered on instilling strong and sustainable opportunities for young children, their families and their early care and education providers.

As an early interventionist, researcher and teacher educator, I have the unique experience of observing early childhood and its positive impact to the community from the perspectives of those who receive and those who provide care during this critical period in a child's development.  I believe in the Coalition's work because I believe in Shelby County...a community for all ages and abilities to thrive!

Allison Coburn

Executive Director

Early childhood education is the best investment a parent, family and the community can make to ensure children have opportunities for a successful future.  Brain growth and development is a very important part of childhood health.  I want to see our children ready and eager to learn when they start kindergarten.
