Our School

About Us:

Established in 2000Good Shepherd Day School operates as a childcare facility with faith-based roots. 

We recognize that childcare is a shared responsibility between the parent and the school and pride ourselves in getting to know the parent(s) and the individual needs of each child.

We understand that you place your child in our care and we endeavor to provide the highest quality care possible. Each child holds a special place in our hearts and with a low student-teacher ratio we can dedicate ourselves to ensuring that your child directly receives our love and attention.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church believes in child care as a ministry.  Our mission reflects Jesus' words in Matthew 19:14, "let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of Heaven belongs."
