MISSION STATEMENT. The cornerstone of the program at the Good Shepherd School is its commitment to nurturing
each child as a unique individual with a special set of gifts. The faculty and staff seek to instill in each child a strong
sense of self-worth and a love of learning. We strive to help each child in our care to grow socially, intellectually,
emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
We believe that young children learn best through play. School activities are designed to engage their interest and
enthusiasm. Through these activities, developmentally appropriate concepts and skills are introduced and reinforced.
Attention is given to each child's developmental readiness so that the child experiences success while enjoying a
challenge. In brief:
o Average class size of 12 children with a teacher and an assistant.
o Special classes in creative movement, music, and art.
o Weekly chapel program.
