About Shelley

My mission is to provide a quality childcare experience that helps your child develop physically, socially, and emotionally.


Hello. My name is Shelley. I am the owner and primary caregiver at Shelley's Child Care home. I have been caring for children in my home for over twenty three years. I am certified in CPR and have also completed the state nutrition guidelines training and state licensing orientation program. I opened Shelley's Child Care home, in order to stay home with my children, twenty five years later I still enjoy caring for children.  My previous experiences with children included working in a daycare setting for two and half years, I was a student teacher at Lamar Elementary during my high school years, and have kept children for my friends and family members through out my life.

I have completed my CDA (Child Development Accreditation) and have my Associates in Early Childhood Education.  I continue to take classes to educate myself in the changing needs of all children.  I am certified in CPR, First Aid, Educated in Food Safety, and Early Childhood Education.  I have also been recognized by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as having the qualifications of a Child Care Services Director. 

I am part of The Child Care Food Program - Nutriservice.  I have been educated and consistently monitored to provide the most nutritional meals to children.

Shelley's Child Care home is monitored by the City of Grand Prairie Health Department, the State of Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, City of Grand Prairie Fire Department, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and the Nutriservice CACFP program.  All members of my home have clear and up-to-date background checks.  All inspection and monitoring visits are welcomed to insure the safety of the children that I care for.  I started caring for children in 1989 with a "registered" home and recently became a "licensed" home.  Since 1989, all of my monitoring visits were above satisfactory.  I invite you to check out
www.dfps.state.tx.us when you are in search of a "registered or licensed child care home". 

The majority of the children I have cared for over the years have started at birth and stayed through 12 years of age.  I promise to nurture your child as if he or she were my own.

My Philosophy

I believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. I believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At Shelley's Child Care home, I allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. I read to the children everyday. I believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children need to have fun! At Shelley's Child Care home, children learn best from experiencing the world around them. Shelley's Child Care home limits TV to just one movie in the afternoon, and TV time during morning drop off.  TV choices are monitored by having only educational TV. 

At Shelley's Child Care home I recognize that you have a difficult schedule and support parents the best I can.  I offer drop-in care (based on availability) and early drop-off to accommodate the working parents busy schedule.  I recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents.  I strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.
