Notebook Learning Center

Welcome to our Learning Center

​Here at Notebook, we know how important it is for parents to feel their children are safe when leaving their child in the care of others. Every child will have one primary teacher. While at the center, children will acquire skills developed through hands-on learning in many areas.

Community Resources

Notebook Learning Center reaches out to help all families in need not only in Bullitt County but the surrounding counties. NBLC is licenced for children Newborn to age 5. We are here to put a plan in place for your child's education and development. As a team, we will accomplish goals set in place for each child. Communication is essential to all families and we strive to ensure this happens with "Daily Notebooks". We have been in business since 2008. 

We are also part of the Kentucky All STARS program. We currently have a (5) Five STAR Rating. This is the highest rating you can receive within the program. STARS is a voluntary quality rating improvement system for Licensed Childcare programs. Ratings are from one to five STARS. A childcare's participation in KY ALL-STARS indicates that the program's staff wish to measure quality indicators above those standards required by licensing regulations. ​​

Dana Bixler


My name is Dana Bixler, founder of Notebook Learning Center, LLC. I developed this center out of my own frustration with childcare. I have been married to my husband, Rich since 1984. My husband and I were foster parents for six years and later adopted six of our eight children through the Special Needs Adoption Program (SNAP). As my children have grown and are adults now; I feel we have done our best in preparing them for adulthood. Five of whom have graduated from high school, have gone on to further their education in college.I have made it my goal to educate myself in the field of “Special Education” so I can help my grandchildren grow to their fullest potential. Along the way, I discovered there are many parents who have the same frustrations as myself, and I wanted to create a system from which all of us can learn.

Heather Shelonzek

Assistant Director

My name is Heather Shelonzek and I am the Assistant Director here at Notebook Learning Center. I have more than 10 years of experience in the childcare field. I am passionate about providing exceptional care for children and supporting their families. Being a mother myself, I remember what it was like trying to find childcare. Mostly, I remember how difficult it was to find high-quality care. It is my mission to provide the best possible care for each child that enters our facility and continue to further my education.

The majority of my childcare experience is being in a classroom teaching little ones through hands-on activities. I love to teach using activities that are meaningful for each child's growth and development while giving them the confidence to rule the world.
