Plains Area Daycare Center(PADC) was established in 1991 in response to a need for a childcare center in the Broadway/Timberville areas of Northern Rockingham County.  PADC houses 118 children and offers five programs, Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, Before care and Afterschool care.  All of the center's programs are sliding fee-based according to each family individual needs.  PADC was the first center to offer infant and toddler care based on income in the Shenandoah Valley.

The center is a Community Partner of the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County United Way.  The center is also an approved site for vendor services through Va Dept of Social Services and a participant in CACFP.  PADC is blessed with many donations from civic clubs, churches, and individuals.

This will be Plains Area Daycare Center's first year participating in the Great Community Give. We would like it to be BIG!!!  We would love to replace an old playground structure that was built in 2006 as a Day of Caring project.  This structure has served us well but is now more than gently used and has had many boards, the roof and nails replaced over the years.  We would love your help in helping us bridge the gap to funding our new playground structure.  We are asking the families of children who are currently using PADC for their childcare needs to help out with donations and labor for our playground.  We are also reaching out through social media to contact all families whose children have enjoyed countless hours on the playground to engage in this effort. 

This year as you consider the options for your gift think outside of the box, even if PADC is not in your neighborhood.  PADC provides care too many families who work in Harrisonburg but live in the Broadway/Timberville community.  Sometimes, it is hard to find options for sponsorships and or donors due to the location of our facility.  Please keep in mind many of your family and friends reside in the county and we need your help too! 

This year pledge #PADCPAYTOPLAY so that we can replace a playground for today's children and maintain a space for tomorrows children to enjoy, play and grow.
