The Good Shepherd Day School is committed to fostering the development of world changing children through the knowledge and grace of God the Father, His son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. We believe that all children are precious in His sight. It is our mission to provide a nurturing, safe and developmentally appropriate environment that prepares children socially, emotionally, spiritually and academically. With these skills we believe our children will grow to be confident leaders in their communities, families, and churches.
We welcome children ages 18 mos., 2,3, & 4 years of age. With the exception of our Tot’s, children must be their respective class age by September 1st of the current school year.
The teaching staff is united by one common thread – our love of the Lord and our willingness to serve His children to the best of our ability. Our lead teachers have degrees in Elementary Education or have many years of experience in an Early Childhood setting. Our assistant teachers are seasoned professionals. All staff pass background checks, are First Aid and CPR certified and have completed the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina’s child abuse awareness program called Safeguarding God’s Children. All teachers participate in professional development workshops yearly.
