OUTREACH & IMPACT
Since 2017, we have collaborated with community leaders to design a wide range of enrichment programs to unleash our community's potential. Our outreach initiatives aim to support early childhood professions who provide a nurturing environment that allows children to develop the skills young minds need to become prominent leaders of tomorrow.
At Early Learning Shelby County, we have a wide range of activities and programs that are catered to suit every child’s needs. Check out what we plan to roll out in the near future!
