Our Story

Shelby University as a local child care facility in Shelby Township was established in 2005. We started with 7 programs, 20 care givers and over 13,000 square feet building. Shelby University is not only a good place to play, it is also an awesome place to learn and create. Our pre-k graduates have great results during kindergarten assessments, which is an outcome of the excellent care and attention they get during days spent at Shelby University.

Philosophy & Mission

Our goal at Shelby University is based on a blend of educational theories that support play as children’s primary means of learning about themselves and the world around them. Our teachers utilize a “themed” approach in planning a curriculum and providing an environment that encourages self-discovery, hands-on manipulation of materials and activities that are meaningful and appropriate for young children. Regard for children’s development in all areas (social, intellectual, emotional and physical) is an integral part of our philosophy. Our daily program incorporates many opportunities for children to acquire and build skills in these areas.

What Our Families are Saying

I never have any worries leaving my daughter at Shelby U! As a first time daycare parent, I was very worried about the whole experience but the entire staff has been more than informative, kind, and PATIENT! The owner, Kim, is always there which provides an extra layer of trust. She is very involved with the day to day and runs such a great place. We’re so happy with our decision to attend Shelby University!

We love Shelby University! Our daughter is so loved by all the staff members and we feel so welcomed as parents. Being a first time mom, I had so many hesitations about going back to work full time, but we know our girl is being well cared for every time she is there. We have watched her learn so many new things in the few short months there. Thank you Shelby University!!

Shelby U is like an extended family for us. Bringing our daughter here is one of the best parenting decisions we’ve made. When I drop her off, I have no worries whatsoever. The kids have fun, they learn new things and they socialize. Great place, great people, I’d recommend it to anyone who is looking for daycare.
