About the School

The Shelby Early Childhood Center is located at 155 Sixth Street in Shelby, Michigan. We serve three and four year old children who qualify for the Head Start and/or Great Start Readiness Programs. Our programs encourage strong family involvement and parent education opportunities as well as research-based curriculum and best practice in preschool education. Meals, transportation, health and advocacy resources are also available.

Head Start is a federally funded free preschool for 3 & 4 year old children who qualify. Classes are held Monday through Thursday (and some Fridays) with All Day sessions.

GSRP is a state funded free preschool for 4 year old children who qualify. Classes are held Monday through Thursday with All Day sessions dependent on funding and availability.

 The ECC programs provide a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of your young children.
