"At Good Shepherd, we want your child to see himself or herself as a valuable person loved by God and by others. Children who feel loved by God and by others are better equipped emotionally to meet the challenges of life.
Our students are free to develop into the unique individual that God created them to be. We encourage them to express themselves through art, music, dramatic play, movement, language and outdoor play.
We desire for your child to learn in an atmosphere of Christian love: to learn to take turns, to share their time and materials with others, to respect their teachers and classmates, to show concern for the needs of others, and to resolve conflicts justly and peacefully.
Our goal is that your child would also grow intellectually, through interactions with materials and equipment designed to stimulate a child's interest in the surrounding world.
Lastly, we strive to provide an environment where your child can develop both large and small motor skills. Outdoor play exercises muscles, improving your child's physical well being. On rainy days we set up climbing equipment indoors and encourage cooperative games. Art, puzzles, manipulative, blocks and practice at writing all help to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination."
