The academy was started because of a child name Kenneth Austin Shaw Jr. This child was the son of Karen A.C. Shaw, the founder of Precious Child Academy. Karen wanted a place that this child could learn, grow and be enhanced in on-going challenges in life; a place to start his education at an early age. Mrs. Karen A.C. Shaw, Marilyn C. Feaster and Phyllis C. King began Precious Child Academy on Oct. 4th 1993, with only 2 children in an old renovated church. Within 3 month this business grew to 50 children. In 6 months this business had impacted 105 children’s lives by making leaning fun and play educational.
There have been thousands of children that have been impacted through these facilities, from the youngest child of 5 days old to the oldest child of 16 years old.

Precious Child Academy relies primarily on self-directed play. This promotes the children’s ability to develop their own imaginations, and to select the types of activities that match their interests to interact with others without continual adult intervention. Children are allowed to play freely.
Our purpose is to provide a loving and nurturing environment, strengthening the children in all areas of development through the service of a professional staff, implementing an age appropriate curriculum, and instilling a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
Our vision is to prepare children for life; developing social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and intellectual attributes; we enhance their quality of learning by teaching them through play, language and unconditional love; giving our families a peace of mind concerning the early education of their child by meeting their needs.
