Every child searches for Love. 
Loving them opens the way to teaching them…


Welcome to the Parent’s Day Out Program at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church.  We are a Christian-based preschool (or as we like to call it playschool) that encourages and promotes socialization and communication skills for children ages 21/2-3 years of age. 

Our age appropriate curriculum encourages children to explore new concepts and ideas in a safe and loving environment through independent play, stories, music, crafts and positive interactions. 

If you have any questions we encourage you to stop in and observe or give us a call.  We look forward to being a part of your family as your child moves from toddler to preschooler.
