Welcome

We are pleased to have your child be a part of our Good Shepherd Church family. Our purpose is to provide quality Christian care for children in a safe, happy, healthy, and intellectually stimulating environment. We are excited to work with you and your beautiful children. Our staff of highly qualified, dedicated, loving teachers are eager to serve you and your family.

We believe nurturing the minds of children is the most honorable and rewarding experience. Caring and educating the future is like planting and growing a tree. We hope to let the roots sink in deep and grow tall like a tree planted by streams of water. Someday, we believe the children will give back to the world what they have received throughout their lives to the world.

We are so proud to be a part of this mission. We will do our best to create an environment that provides a strong foundation of early childhood years to meet the unique needs of each child by providing a wide variety of both teacher-directed and child-created activities.

We know our Lord will lead us through this exciting and fun journey of early childhood. We look forward to serving and working with you. Thank you!

Philosophy

We believe each child has their own ability to explore and question as they learn something in their own way. Children are motivated to learn when they have opportunities to make choices in an environment that is enriching and stimulating. Our curriculum is based on Vygotsky’s view where adults intervene in their learning as a facilitator at some point, providing enriching activities, like Reggio Emilia Approach or the Project Approach.

At Good Shepherd Christian Preschool, we engage as a community in critical thinking and through dialogue in the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of each other and the world. Our comprehensive teaching will encourage children’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. We promote independence in an organized atmosphere, as it is exceptionally important for children to be their own thinkers. We also teach the children to work well within a group by giving them opportunities to listen, share and cooperate. It is also our goal to instill a firm foundation of Christian values within all our students. We will work together and do our best to guide the children to build a strong foundation in their early childhood years.
