My youngest (1st grade now) attended preschool at SHED. Ever since then, my daughters have attended summer camp at SHED, they also attend kids club every morning and on every in service day and attend every kids night out that we are available for. I cannot speak highly enough of this program. The overall culture of the staff and administration fosters an amazing (and rare) sense of independence, curiosity, creativity, community and kindness. So grateful to have a program like this in Andover - I wouldn't leave my girls anywhere else!

Our son loves SHED and so do we. He attends the after-school sessions and each day he’s doing something different. When we pick him up he may be playing football or hockey one day, a game of chess or crafts another. They let kids explore their imaginations with enough room to roam the creative, expressive (and athletic) space.

I am very happy with Shed/Kids club. Our kids use the bus to go from school to Shed. They are able to choose the activity they would like to do in the afternoon and they love it. The management goes above and beyond to help. We have had a wonderful experience at Shed.

My daughter absolutely loves spending time at Shed. The people that take care of the kids are amazing. The activities are endless and the rest of the staff is very welcoming and helpful.

Our Mission

Curiosity-Driven Learning

We believe that children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded, and that as educators, it is our job and responsibility to nurture a child’s innate curiosity and desire to learn. 

It is our mission to create safe spaces in which every child can thrive.

Our Five Foundations for Learning

Through these five foundational concepts, we provide children the opportunity to explore the world around them. By exposing them to these core ideas, we are able to plant seeds. The children then dictate the teachings, learning through play and growing from their curiosity. 

our dream, hope, & purpose

“To every child, I dream of a world where you can laugh, dance, sing, learn, live in peace & be happy.”

– Malala Yousafzal

SHED Children’s Campus is committed to creating a welcoming environment for children, families & staff that values all, regardless of gender identity, age, race and ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation. We welcome all into our community to better connect, embrace & learn from each other.

When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become a wiser, more inclusive, and better organization.
