Sheila Johnson

Owner & Director

In 1970, I opened my first preschool for small children. I taught the class three mornings each week during the school year. I immensely enjoyed working with young children and families. In late 1978, I realized that my community would benefit from a small State licensed early care and education center. My first center was on Mulberry Street in Tuscumbia. Then in 1984, I expanded to Muscle Shoals to become the first licensed center located in the growing city. At that time, Ann Basden and Ellen Stell decided to add a second Cradle Care for infants and toddlers to the center. I have 51 years of experience in young children’s early care and education.
