Meaghan Sherwood

Owner and Franchisee

My name is Meaghan Sherwood and I am the owner of Building Kidz of Chandler, Arizona.

I enjoy being around kids and consider myself a kid at heart. Since I was a little girl, I was taking care of my stuffed animals, playing school, and helping my mom.

I have my BS in Elementary Education. I taught first grade for 4 years and loved every moment of it. I then became a mom of 4 sweet boys and 1 perfect princess that changed my world completely. Their need for a quality preschool drives my desire to make this center the very best!

This location will be the first Building Kidz campus in Arizona and can start a new era of quality education starting at a young age. Loving and serving children is an innate part of who I am. I could not imagine a world without kids running around. They are our future, we have the responsibility to guide them to their full and true potential. Building Kidz has the tools to help your child be a bright light in the world!

My name is Shirley Galvan, and I am your director for Building Kidz Chandler.

I look forward to the opportunity to lead Building Kidz Chandler toward the mission of improving the quality and access to childcare services, ultimately benefiting the Chandler and Mesa areas. My experience includes teaching in the classroom, directing childcare centers, facilitating professional development, and mentoring others in the early childcare field. However, the work I am most passionate about and committed to is enriching the lives of children, their families, and childcare professionals who work with them.

I have over 10 years of experience in early childhood education and received my Bachelor of Science in
early childhood education. I continue to learn and grow so I can be an exemplary role model for my team and for you.

I have a beautiful family that includes my husband of 10 years and 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls ranging in ages from 29 to 2. Plus I have a bonus of 3 beautiful grandchildren.

It is my pleasure to serve your community and build lifelong friendships together!
