About Good Shepherd Lutheran Playschool

The Good Shepherd Lutheran Playschool has provided children with a caring learning environment geared to the individual needs of each child.

The aim of the school is to create within each child feelings of achievement and accomplishment that will help the child make a successful adjustment to kindergarten and further his/her educational and emotional development.

A child's first day in preschool is the beginning of many years of school experience. What happens on this and succeeding days of the year greatly influence a child's future in school and even his whole adjustment to social living and his development as a personality. This preschool has an important contribution to make toward the entire education of your child.

Coming to school usually confronts children with a novel situation. It means being away from home and familiar surroundings for several hours a week. It means following different schedules, working and playing with many others of one's own age, undertaking new activities, using new materials, and preparing for further school experiences. Together such demands might overwhelm or at least unsettle the child, so it is the function of Good Shepherd Lutheran Playschool to help make the adjustment to kindergarten a natural part of the total process of growing up.

Each class at Good Shepherd Lutheran Playschool is taught by an experienced teacher who is carefully chosen for their ability to work with the preschool child. Where possible, a degree in early childhood education is desired. In addition, there is an aide to assist the teachers where needed. All staff members are involved in continuing education workshops that are offered during the year. All staff members are required to have background checks at the initial time of employment. All staff members must be certified annually by a practicing physician to be free from any disability which would prevent them from caring for children.
