Curiosity Grows Here.

Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center provides a Christ-centered environment that allows children to learn by doing—moving from concrete, hands-on experiences to more abstract concept development. Our priority is to provide a healthy balance of child-directed and teacher-guided activities, as well as time for children to work and play individually and in small groups. We believe that a stable, safe, positive and culturally diverse environment is crucial to a child’s growth.

  • A Christian Pre-School program for 2 1/2 to 5 year olds
  • 2-5 days per week, 9am-1pm
  • Optional extended day from 1pm-3pm

Christian Mission

Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center was founded on the love of God in Jesus Christ, and seeks to show that love in the teaching and care of the children entrusted to our safekeeping. To that end, Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center would love unconditionally, serve unsparingly, and care for unendingly each child who comes through the Center doors. When the children move on from Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center they will do so having been touched by the redeeming love of Christ.

“We absolutely loved having our children at Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center!!! It was such a family atmosphere. All of the teachers were always warm and friendly!! It was a wonderful experience for us and our children!”
– Kim & Shawn Spurry

“Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center is a great place to take your child. I have had the privilege of sending 3 of my kids here. Wonderful caring staff! Clean friendly environment!”
– Steve & Kristen Gorogias

“A wonderful, friendly, learning environment while the preschoolers can also learn good social skills, and begin to develop a good understanding and relationship with Christ.”
– Dawn Hall (Dawn’s Daycare)

“Shepherd’s Care Children’s Center is a wonderful and loving Christian environment. Our son attended the center. We wanted our child to have a program that included learning about the Lord and incorporating that learning into everyday life. The teachers are amazing and caring and we still stop by to visit even though we no longer attend the school. If you are looking for an excellent school for your child to start their academic years and keep them centered in Christ at the same time, this is the center you need. It does not get any better than Shepherd’s Care in Olney, Md. We miss them!!!”
– Melody Wald
