About Us

Shepherd of the Ridge Lutheran Preschool is.....

A Preschool that has been created and designed as a child-centered environment for pre-kindergarten and children ages 3 to 5.  All of the equipment, furnishing and materials have been selected with your children in mind and reaching their optimum potential in a safe and rewarding environment.  A wide variety of hands-on material has been selected to provide an ideal environment for children to interact, relax, play and learn through numerous learning centers.  The curriculum reflects our belief in developmentally appropriate activities that address a child's entire development:  physical, social, emotional, creative, cognitive and spiritual.  We are very proud that we now have computer 'tablets' to offer the children.  They will use them in a learning atmosphere.​

Our primary purpose and obligation is to develop in our students such attitudes, habits and skills that are necessary to train the heart, the head, and the hands.  A child has certain basic needs---spiritual, physical, mental, social, emotional and aesthetic - that must be satisfied so that a child can live as a free and responsible person in Jesus Christ.  

Learning is the result of the interaction between a child's knowledge and experiences with materials, ideas and people.  With this focus materials, activities and equipment are carefully selected to enhance the child's development .  Most effective materials are hands-on manipulative that relate to the child's interests and to real life experiences for all children.  Multicultural activities are encouraged to enhance self-esteem and to provide learning experiences for all children.  Creative movement activates as well as exploration in an outdoor setting allows for development of large muscle skills.

What are we up to?

We are really being kept busy, not only with the kids, but with the covid restrictions!!!  So many of them.  We are truly working hard to continue to keep your kiddos safe, happy and healthy.  It's hard to believe that the Harvest Parties are just down the road.  The month of October will be a little different for the 3AM & 4AM classes.  Pastor Paul and Miss Glenna will be filling in for Mrs. Deb, who will be recovering at home from surgery.  Both are up and ready for the challenge!!!  Miss Marcia will be doing the administrator job on Monday, Wednesday & Friday afternoons, just until Mrs. Deb gets back into the swing of things!
