Preschool Openings

Our current three classes are full, but we have a wait list for a fourth class. We are hopeful that this class will be open early 2022, but that is dependent on filling the class, and finding the right teachers for that class.

Kindergarten After-School Program

Good Shepherd Preschool has a small after school program specifically for kindergarten age children.  We are able to take about ten kindergarten students at our school for families that need care after kindergarten closes, available from 1:30-4:00 pm.  We currently do not have transportation for those students, so it would be up to the parents or guardians to arrange that transportation.  

Tuition rates and hours for both programs can be found at the bottom of this page.

Our Philosophy

The central purpose of Good Shepherd Preschool Photo 2018Preschool is to support families of our congregation and community through a loving and caring Christian ministry. We provide full day care and enrichment for children ages 2 1/2 to 6, with appropriate play and learning experiences through flexible but consistent routines in a comfortable atmosphere for the children. This contributes to the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual needs of each child. Using the experience of our licensed and highly trained staff we wish to establish a setting where children of various religious and ethnic backgrounds can work and grow together in a loving setting influenced by the mind and spirit of Christ.

Our Staff

As Christian teachers we will give your child the best care in both academic and spiritual growth. It is our goal to see that all steps are taken to introduce your child to new learning experiences in all areas of growth, appropriate for their age.
