Play Based Curriculum

Play-based curriculum is a carefully planned environment that is both stimulating and exciting. Our teachers support children as they explore their environment, they talk with them, and extend their play when required. Simply put, it’s a fun place to play where children can learn without knowing learning is taking place.

At Good Shepherd we see children as naturally curious and capable learners and our days are full of spontaneous learning experiences. Investigating, learning, exploring, questioning, thinking, collaborative discussions are all central to our curriculum.

Traditionally, we have offered a 2 day program for three year olds, a 3 day program for 4 year olds, a 5 day program for 3 & 4 year olds, and a transitional Kindergarten for 4 1/2 and 5 year olds.

Recently, we started accepting 2.6 year olds into the program.  If you choose this program the children will be with other three year olds that leave at 1:00 but parents of 2 1/2 year olds will pick up at noon until they are ready to stay until 1:00.
