History of B & D

 Butterflies & Dragonflies Learning Center & Child Care was established February 4, 2004, by Shauna Cummings. The dream behind Butterflies & Dragonflies was to have a safe and caring place for parents to leave their children while they went to work, and a place that they didn’t have to worry about who was taking care of their children. Shauna wanted to have a facility that was teaching children of all ages from infants to school age. She came up with Butterflies & Dragonflies for the simple fact that the Girls are Butterflies and Boys are Dragonflies. Shauna is proud that the facility is a learning center, not just a daycare center.  In July 2004, Deana Cabrera joined her in this dream As one of her Lead Teachers,  becoming her Director in 2008. Together, They strive hard every day to Be the best Facility in the Canyon County Area.
