Preschool

Welcome!

Welcome to Good Shepherd Preschool and Child Care Center.  The staff here at Good Shepherd make every effort to provide your children with a Christ-centered, stimulating day.  If you are looking for a preschool for your child we hope you will come to meet our director and teachers and take a tour.

Our Philosophy

We believe the young child is a gift from God with the parents being the first and foremost teacher in their lives.

We believe early childhood education is a ministry to the families of young children that provides a parent program designed for support, encouragement, and opportunities that enhance the educational and developmental processes already present in the home.

We believe that children need to be allowed time for their childhood.  We take care to insure that our preschool enhances these important years of development, providing opportunities to play, learn and grow.

 

Our program is designed to provide spiritual, physical, cognitive and social experiences at the developmental level of the preschool child. Activities are Christ-centered, showing God’s love and guidance in all areas of Christian living. The program is flexible and varied. Teachers plan for the needs and abilities of each individual child in their class. Provision is made for experimentation and creative activities.
