Center Director

Meet Our Director, Heather Shippy

Hello families! My name is Heather Shippy, and I am the Center Director at Busy Bees Chandler Child Care Center, formerly known as Valley Learning. I actually started working here when I was 20 years old back in 1996.

I then became a lead two year-old teacher, and after about a year I moved up to working in the front
