First director of new early learning school in Spartanburg appointed

July 14, 2018 by  

Shawna Bynum will start her position this month as the first director of the Franklin School in Spartanburg. The School is part of an effort to rejuvenate the Northside of the city.

The Northside Development Group and the Mary Black Foundation collaborated to create the Franklin School that will served children aged six weeks to five years. It has the potential to hold between 160 and 200 children.

Construction of the new school began last year, and the school is expected to be completed by next year.

Bynum said she is excited to be a part of this new school and to have the chance to make a difference in the lives of children. She has held positions previously in Southern Pines, North Carolina, at the Roy C. Henderson Child Development Center, and as a quality program specialist at the First Steps Early Head Start program for Spartanburg County.

Bynum’s philosophy is that children need a safe, nurturing environment for effective learning. Then, curricula can be developed on a more personalized level.

Flyer printing companies can be used to create flyers with more information about such schools and their approaches to learning so that residents of the community become aware of them and the benefits they bring to the children attending such schools.
