Our Preschool was established in 1984 as a mission of Shepherd of the Valley Presbyterian Church to help meet the needs of the community for an early childhood education and care facility. It is run by a staff of trained early childhood educators and governed by a Board consisting of congregation members, parents of children enrolled in the school and the Preschool Director. The Preschool is designed to provide an educational experience as well as child care for children ages two through five years old. We have three classrooms in which children are grouped according to developmental stages.
Shepherd of the Valley Preschool provides a socially and academically balanced education in a safe, culturally diverse and nurturing Christian environment.
For Shepherd of the Valley Preschool to be recognized for developing responsible, creative students capable of realizing their full potential.
We believe that children are active learners who should be supported and challenged by adults. Since we believe that children learn best by pursuing their personal interests, children in our school are encouraged to make choices about materials and activities throughout the day. As they pursue their choices and plans, children explore, ask and answer questions, solve problems, and interact with friends and teachers. Our program promotes a supportive environment which focuses on children's strengths, authentic relationships, and a problem-solving approach to conflict.
