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 preschool program for 3 to 5 year olds
  • Over 20 years serving the Olney community
  • 2-5 days per week, 9am-1pm
  • Optional extended day from 1pm-3pm
  • Starting at $360 per month (see Admissions)

Enrollment for 2021-2022 is open

The health and safety of students, families, and staff is a priority for us. New protocols have been adopted based on CDC, state, and county guidelines to mitigate the risks of COVID-19.

“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!!!”
