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.
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.
The Early Learning Shelby County Board of Directors represents both public and private sector business leaders from Shelby County. These individuals are champions for our early childhood community. The board oversees ELSC's implementation of community-wide initiatives, as well as policies affecting our work with children, families and caregivers. The ELSC Board of Directors meets quarterly.
