The Wilma Valentine Creative Learning Center is a daycare center that specifically focuses on providing child care for preschool aged children with and without developmental disabilities. We are open from 6 AM – 6 PM year-round. During the summer we offer many field trips and experiences outside of our childcare center. We are housed on the site of the Shelby County Board of Developmental Disabilities and all of our children attend Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center for their preschool experience for half of the day Monday – Thursday during the school year.
Children with and without disabilities attend our daycare and learn and play alongside each other. This provides a very enriching experience for all the children who attend our childcare center. We work to carry out the recommendations from the child’s preschool teaching staff and therapy staff in the childcare center. Where most other childcare centers have a staff to child ratio of approximately 1:14, our center offers a ratio of approximately 1:6. Thus giving all of our children the support they need. Hot, nutritious meals are served each day.
We have weekly, daily, or hourly fee schedules and will work to accommodate most schedules. We are proud to be a partner agency of the Shelby County United Way. Please call us at (937) 498-4566 for further information.
