5-Star Child Care

We're a family of two 5-Star child care centers with locations in Asheboro and Colfax, North Carolina!

Types of Child Care We Offer

Infant Care

In our Infant Care Rooms you will find an environment made specifically with the needs of your infant in mind, a safe comfortable space for them in which to grow and learn. 

Toddler Care

Toddler Care offers a safe environment in which toddlers can explore, a space that provides them the challenge they thrive on while giving them the protection they need. 

Pre-K Care

Preschoolers/Pre-Kindergarteners need an environment that is filled with rich opportunities and new experiences, with teachers who love them and nurture their growing independence. 

After School Care

We pick up children from several local elementary schools and bring them to our school age facility. Our focus for after school care is on providing a fun and educational “wind down” time. 

What makes Shepherd’s Way unique?

Shepherd’s Way Day School offers quality programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. We understand the great responsibility that we have in taking care of your little ones- not just by meeting their needs, but also by stimulating their brains, helping them to interact with others, helping them to respect others, and learn about God’s love for them, loving them unconditionally just as you would, and preparing them for the next step when they leave us. We take this very seriously and work diligently to meet and exceed your expectations.

At Shepherd’s Way Day School, we believe that children are very special individuals, eager and ready to learn about themselves and their world. By providing them with a loving environment, rich with opportunities and new experiences, that we help them to reach their full potential. Our slogan “giving our best when it means the most“, has real meaning to us at Shepherd’s Way. During a child’s first few years, his body and brain is developing faster than it will for the rest of his lifetime. We have an awesome responsibility to meet this challenging and exciting time with excellence.

What 5-Star Means

At Shepherd’s Way we will continually work to earn the trust placed in us. The Star Rated License is a comprehensive program that helps to determine the overall quality of a child care center. Stars range from 1 to 5 stars. Obtaining 5 stars requires a center to perform well above the minimum in three major areas:

  • Program Standards, Staff/Child Ratio & Environmental Rating for Centers
  • Staff Education Standards for Centers

Compliance with All Child Care Regulations History for Centers
