Good Shepherd Preschool

Church of the Good Shepherd Preschool is open to children of all races, family configurations, religious backgrounds (or no religious affiliation) and a member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools. We are owned and operated by the Church of the Good Shepherd. 

We are play based and child-centered. Our teachers are highly experienced in guiding play that rapidly develops your child’s social and emotional skills, their language, their scientific thinking, their mathematics and spatial skills. 

Seeing is believing… so, schedule a tour today.

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.

Kindergarten After School Play Program

Kindergarten children are transported from Toro Park Elementary School to Good Shepherd Preschool in our car seat filled van. Miss Laura is our Afterschool Play teacher and she sets up fun activities for the children each day.

Pick up times from Toro Park School: 11:30 or 12:20, Pick up times from Good Shepherd: 3:30, 4:30 or 5:30 pm.  May enroll for 1 to 5 days a week

We mostly follow the Washington Union School District calendar.
