We have built an environment and program specifically designed for the preschool level of early childhood education. Our children are our future. We are committed to find opportunity to continue to develop our space and grow in ways that will be innovative and unique.
At Shepherd Christian School in Atascadero, Ca, families will find an amazing teaching staff that lovingly supports emotional and growth of children and models the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Gal 5:16-26). A specifically designed environment and curriculum that reflects current research in the area of early childhood development allows us to deliver the highest quality education.
The early years are an important time to develop the love of learning and positive feelings about school. Through exploration of activities meaningful to the individual child, learning becomes an adventure. When we allow children to choose from a variety of play opportunities while practicing how to make good decisions, they become more independent learners.
In addition to the natural setting we have a separate barn area with Alpaca's, chicken's and a turkeys to develop a wonder and care for animals. Children also participate in growing food in the garden.
