Jesus said, "Let the children come to me... People who are like these little children belong to the kingdom of God." Mark 10:14


Good Shepherd Christian Day Care & PreSchool operates from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We provide year-round professionally-staffed programs for children 2 to 5 years of age and a before & after school care program with Adamsville Elementary School for Kindergarten.


We also offer a summer program for 6-8 year olds from mid-June to August.


All children are welcome, regardless of faith, race or national origin. Parents provide lunches; cost of snacks is included in the tuition.



Good Shepherd Christian Day Care & PreSchool respects the dignity, worth and uniqueness of each individual (child, family member, staff member) and treats them with love and acceptance. GSCDC offers a safe, nurturing environment while following a developmentally appropriate curriculum. We provide learning centers that stimulate creativity and foster a child's natural curiosity to become a confident learner.

Our Christian program welcomes families of all faiths and cultures, and prepares children spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and academically.



Each child is treated with respect and love and is offered a safe and positive learning environment. Our academic curriculum offers a variety of age-appropriate activities designed to enhance the development of the whole child. We also offer enrichment activities which are gardening, cooking, music, storytelling and chapel time.



Our Director, Pat Whitehead, is a member of the congregration and has over 15 year of experience working at GSCDC.  All of our staff consists of experienced and dedicated teachers that love working with children. 



We recognize that you, the parent, are the first and most important educator of your child. We are continuously striving to achieve the best parent-school communication system. We believe in an open door policy. Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to share their interests and talents with the children.



At Good Shepherd Christian Day Care & PreSchool your child will interact with teachers and other children in:

  • Love and acceptance as a unique child of God

  • An atmosphere of respect for others and the world around us

  • An environment that nurtures a child’s natural curiosity as a confident learner

  • A celebration of Bible stories, music and holidays of the Christian community; and other nationally recognized holidays.

  • Low ratios

  • Flexible schedule (part time and preschool hours available)
