Preschool Openings

We are currently accepting enrollment for Summer, 2024 and Fall-Spring 2024-2025. These openings fill up quickly so if you are interested in reserving a spot for your child please contact our director, Katie Eckert.

Our Philosophy

The central purpose of Good Shepherd Children Looking at BooksPreschool 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.
