Preschool Openings

We have only a few part-time openings left for Summer 2021 and for our upcoming Fall 2021 session.  If you are interested in one of the few remaining spots, please contact our Preschool Director Katie Eckert.  We are also starting a wait list for a fourth class.  At this time we are not sure when this class will open, but our hope is to open it as soon as we get enough students and staff to make it possible.

New Kindergarten After-School Program

Good Shepherd Preschool is excited to announce the start of a small after school program specifically for kindergarten age children.  Starting August 17th we will be 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.  If you are interested in this new program, please contact our Preschool Director Katie Eckert.

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.
