Welcome to our play-based preschool setting nestled in the heart of nature! For nearly five decades, we have been serving the Gilroy community with pride and dedication. Our campus is surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors, where children can observe deer, turkeys, lizards, and wildflowers in their natural habitat. We believe that children are curious by nature and our environment helps them to explore and learn.
Our preschool is located on the beautiful grounds of The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and is Christian-based. We believe in teaching with passion, love, and acceptance, and we set aside a few minutes every day to sing good morning to Jesus. This time is an opportunity for children to express gratitude, reflect, and connect with their faith. We are an all-inclusive preschool that welcomes families of all backgrounds and beliefs. We believe that diversity is an asset and that children benefit from exposure to different cultures and perspectives.
At our preschool, we understand that early education is crucial for a child's development. That's why we follow a play-based curriculum that encourages children to learn through exploration, imagination, and discovery. We believe that play is a child's work and through play, children can build cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.
We also understand the importance of socialization for children between the ages of three and kindergarten. Our program provides children with opportunities to interact with their peers, share their thoughts and ideas, and develop their communication skills. We strive to create a nurturing and inclusive environment where children feel valued and supported.
Our goal is to prepare children to enter both public and private school systems for kindergarten with confidence and readiness. Our experienced and passionate teachers provide personalized attention to each child, creating individualized learning plans that cater to their unique needs and interests.
We believe in the importance of a half-day preschool program that provides children with ample time to learn, play, and grow at their own pace. We also believe in the power of positive relationships between teachers, students, and families. Our teachers are passionate about their work and are dedicated to providing a loving and safe learning environment for all students.
Thank you for considering our preschool for your child's early education journey. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our community!
