Mathews native and former Mathews teacher Taylor Jacobs will be opening a day care center in August for infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children, with after-school care for children up to age 12 years. She is currently accepting applications for enrollment.
Little Shepherds Academy will be located at Faith Baptist Church on Route 14 in Mathews, said Jacobs, but it is a private business, not a church ministry. It will be open throughout the school year, offering curriculum-based learning in classes for pre-K 3 and pre-K 4 for an additional fee. The hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
