At Good Shepherd you will see:
No lines to stand in
Only games to play
No patterns to follow
Only materials with which to create
No complicated, abstract meanings that the child cannot comprehend
Only ideas and things to talk about, relate to, compare with, match, fit into, try out, reinforce, invent, discover, and enjoy.
Yet at all times children are being continuously challenged by specific learning goals that we have set for them.
Our program is geared toward helping children develop habits of observation, questioning, and listening.They learn that they are free to make choices, as long as they stay within the limits of consideration for people and things.An open-ended program prepares children to use their intellectual and creative abilities in future learning talks.
Our day begins at and ends at Children are provided breakfast, lunch and snacks.
