Jesus and the little children

Purpose and Goals:

In Matthew 19:14, “Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’”  Through these words, Shephard’s Daycare is determined to continue Jesus’ ministry through our children.  We want to offer the families in our communities access to a daycare that provides for a child academically and spiritually.   

In addition, we want you, the guardian of Jesus’ beloved little children, to feel comfortable and secure that your child is receiving excellent care from qualified staff.  Our staff will provide your child with a variety of opportunities to learn, grow, develop, and explore with age-appropriate developmental activities.
