Good Shepherd Presbyterian Child Development Program (website) is a ministry of Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church. We seek to provide a place of Christian nurture and educational opportunity for young children in our community.
We use a play-based curriculum that allows children to learn through play. We value the learning of each child and want to give them as many opportunities as possible to grow and develop. Our classrooms are designed with learning centers and materials that children can enjoy individually and with peers. The staff integrate all academic learning into the learning centers and help children to gain the necessary pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-math skills that they will need for success in kindergarten.
We plan each day to meet children where they are and to help them develop in all domains of development: physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual. This is done through many different activities during the day such as; learning centers, circle times, outdoor play, daily routines, chapel time, music time, story time, and many special and fun activities that challenge children to grow and learn.
Our classes meet from 9am-1pm Monday through Friday, depending on the days you are registered to attend. We have an early drop-off option from 8:15am-9:00am that can be used as needed.
