Shannen's Precious Preschool & Loving Childcare
About this program
I offer safe and loving childcare/preschool in my happy Beaverton home. We have a large fenced "park like" yard in our quiet, residential neighborhood.
I majored in child development and family health in high school and later earned my associate degree in special education, which lead me to teach preschool to deaf and special needs children within the L.A. City Schools.
I have over 30 years of experience caring for, loving and teaching children and I'm certified by Portland State University's Oregon Center for Career Development in Childhood Care and Education and licensed by the state of Oregon which requires one to be certified/trained in infant/child CPR and First Aid.
I'm the mother of 4 grown beautiful children. My husband is a Letter carrier for the USPS, who also adores children and is able to help me one day/week because of his rotating work schedule as well as my sweet assistant (21 yr old college student) who works with me 3-8 hours/week.
I think of my business as our extended family and want the children/families that come into our lives to feel like our home is their 2nd home.
