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?

Teachers are busy getting ready for parent conferences.  They will be busy assessing each child along with getting the kids files all set for family members.  We are gearing up for our Easter Celebrations.   The teachers are educating all the kids on how Jesus died on the cross for all of us and he rose from the dead on Easter Sunday.
