Teacher Spotlight: Shelby Norman

Everything we do at Day Early Learning is aimed at nurturing each child’s social, emotional and educational needs. Our ultimate goal is not only to prepare your child for kindergarten but also to inspire a lifelong learning journey. Well-educated and trained teachers ensure that your child will be in the best hands possible.

I will have worked at Day Early Learning for seven years this June.

Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces as they run up to you after the weekend is one of the best gifts in the world.
