Early childhood education experts maintain that brain development is highest during the first four years of life. The brain is forming important neural paths to help develop a child’s ability to perform and function and learn well.

“With these facts in mind, our staff at The Good Shepherd Preschool is passionate about early childhood education and is focused on the development of the total child,” says preschool director Gary Wagner.

“Our teachers create a nurturing environment to stimulate learning, permit social interaction, and foster a feeling of security and self-confidence in a play-based atmosphere.”

The preschool offers a half-day program from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon, as well as a full-day program until 3:30 p.m. Additional services offered include before-school care from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and after-school care from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Preschool facilities feature spacious classrooms, a large gymnasium and a shaded, fenced playground.
