American Child Preschool & Child Care

Class A Preschool and Child Care Center American Child has educated and cared for Shreveport's children for 35 years. We utilize the A Beka phonics curriculum to develop early reading skills and follow the Magnet testing guidelines.

Mission: Our mission is to provide a superior educational environment in a fun, loving atmosphere.

Operating as usual

It’s always calming to read a good book! Especially with a child!

Sharing books with children can create a small oasis of calm, in an otherwise chaotic world.

We want to thank all of our parents who are first responders and helping our community through this crisis. We feel very blessed to be able to support you as you go to work each day helping others.

Parents of Schoolagers! Be sure to pick up your school work packet today! We begin morning school work at American Child Monday morning. We need parents to fill the folders that you pick up with the work your child needs to get done each day. If work needs to be done on a computer, we need you to send a computer and give us passwords and directions, so that we can help your child. Be sure that your child has a book or books to read each day. We will be having reading time every morning and many afternoons. Talk to your child about how mornings at American Child are for them to get their school work done and how important that is. Together we can make sure that the children at American Child continue learning during this time!

[03/22/20]   Parents, under Governor Edwards’ latest stay at home order, it is our understanding that daycares are considered essential and we will remain open for those that need to be at work.

[03/18/20]   Parents/Friends

We have seen a number of posts recently seeking childcare for workers, particularly in hospitals. We have spots to take children right now. In particular, we were authorized by the state to make additional spots available for children of first responders and healthcare workers on even a temporary basis. We are charging no registration fees for these families during this time and waiving two week notices to leave while we are still uncertain about work situations. In addition, we will be having school time each morning beginning Monday so that children will have supervised time each day to work on the online or home lessons while school is out.

We are doing our very best to honor our commitments to our enrolled kids and try to also be as flexible as possible to everyone who needs care during this time.

Any parents who need care on temporary or permanent basis, please give us a call today and we will do our best to help.

Parents, please share so that those who need help will see that we are available.

God Bless and Stay Safe,

[03/14/20]   Parents,
We know this whole situation brings up more questions than we might have answers for, but we are committed to keeping our parents working and the children's lives normal during this time.

We know you might have questions over the weekend. Please feel free to contact one of us at the numbers below if you have any questions or anything to report.

It often works much better for us if you text as we are more likely to be able to respond more quickly than a phone call. If texting does not work for you, please feel free to call.

Shanna Sharp. Director at Shreveport. 318/344-4399
Nancy Moore. Director at Greenwood. 318/453-1041
John Albin. Owner. 318/550-8889
Eve Albin. Owner 318/560-5844

Thank you!

[03/13/20]   Parents,
Earlier today we participated in a phone conference with Matthew Block, Executive Counsel to Governor Edwards. With the information that we have from that conference and from the CDC, we have decided to remain open. Ultimately, Covid-19 does not appear to be dangerous to children. We realize that in order for our parents to continue to work and provide for their families, they must have childcare. We take this commitment to our families very seriously, and we will uphold this commitment as long as we feel it is prudent and safe according to the information we have.
We will continue to provide our preschoolers with the same care and curriculum as usual. We will provide care for our school age children like we do during the summer (at the summer rate).
In order to continue to provide service, we will be taking every precaution to keep everyone healthy. We ask that you do not send your child if they have any indications at all that they are sick. PLEASE do not give your child Tylenol or any other fever reducer in order to send them to daycare. This endangers the other families, our staff and prolongs this problem.
Our policy on sending “sick” children home will be more stringent. If a child has ANY symptoms of illness, they will be sent home immediately. We ask that parents do not go past the lobby of the centers to go get their children as this will bring in more outside germs than necessary. We will bring your children to you. Children and staff will wash their hands immediately when they enter the center. All areas will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times a day.

If we work together, we can withstand this difficult time.

If you don't mind please share this post, as all of our parents are not following this page and we want them all to see it.

Thank you,
John and Eve
