About Us

Your Customized Child Care Solutions

Driven by a fundamental belief that parents should not have to sacrifice anything when they choose to care for their child, KECC developed a place where young children could come during the day to be loved, educated, and nurtured in an environment that looked and felt like home.

In 1989, Kelley´s Exclusive Child Care (KECC) began serving parents who were unwilling to settle on anything less than their ideal environment for their precious little one. Kelley’s Exclusive Child Care's vision was firmly rooted in the belief and passion that every single child deserves individualized support and encouragement as they develop and grow. Providing a 3:1 ratio allows our teachers to give this support.


An Extraordinary Team

Our teachers are highly experienced in early childhood education. Each of our lead teachers has a Child Development Associate Credential (CDA), Early Childhood Education Associate, or a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. Our assistant teachers have years of hands-on classroom experience or a CDA. We recognize that your child's teacher is crucial to their learning. Research has proven that the first five years are particularly important for brain development. Understanding child development stages helps our early childhood professionals support your child as they grow and develop.

Kelley’s teachers are continually learning throughout the year by accumulating a minimum of 20 training hours per year. Each teacher is certified in CPR, First Aid, and Universal Precautions annually. Also, our infant teachers are educated in Safe Sleep Practices and CDC guidelines for breast milk and formula.

The state of Indiana fully licenses our homes. Kelley’s Exclusive Child Care exceeds all state guidelines and proudly participates in Paths to Quality. Paths to Quality is Indiana’s statewide quality rating system for early care and education programs.

Mrs. Shannon Headshot


Hi! I’m Shannon Hege, the owner of Shannon’s Exclusive Child Care at Geist and Kelley’s Exclusive Child Care. I have been caring for children of all ages since 2001 and have loved every minute! I enjoy watching them develop, build confidence, and learn through everyday play! My love for children led me to obtain a degree in Early Childhood Education and make early childhood education my career. As a mom and educator, I understand the importance of a safe, nurturing environment where children’s brains are stimulated through developmentally appropriate experiences. My husband and I have four children of our own two girls and two boys along with a very hyper cocker spaniel! Three of our four children have left the nest with our youngest still residing with us as a college student. Our lives have slowed down a bit from choir, band, basketball, and track meets! I know how busy life can get as a parent and we are here to support you along the journey!
