General School Mission

Good Shepherd Little Lambs CDC is a ministry of Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church, a member of the Wisconsin Evagelical Lutheran Synod.
We use the Missouri Sate Early Childhood Standards to guide our curriculum in the areas of Social/Emotional; Math & Science;Literacy; Health/Safety and Physical development.
We use the Christ Light series (published by Northwestern Publishing) as a guide for
spiritual development.
We believe in a constructive approach to learning with hands on activities in our learning centers.
We also believe that families are an important part of a child's early education. We encourage parents to be involved with our school through sharing their time and talents.
