The 1888 Society is essential to allowing Sheltering Arms to provide quality early childhood education. Society members enable us to train our teachers in the newest methods for developing social-emotional well-being, utilize innovative curricula that engage our students, support our families through our comprehensive 2Gen approach and remain thought leaders in the field of early childhood education.

For questions or for more information, please contact Theresa Prestwood, Chief Development and Communications Officer at tprestwood@shelteringarmsforkids.com or 229.429.6272.
