Shepherd of the Valley preschool has three developmentally appropriate classrooms where the children are divided by age group. The Blossom Room is for our little ones, ages 2 to 3 years old. In our Garden Room, the age group is from 3 to 4 years old. The Sunshine Room, is for children ages 4 to 5 years old. The age groups are divided in order to meet the children's specific learning skills. Each room has two qualified child development professionals who meet the needs of children at every age and stage as well as provide a safe, nurturing and quality learning experience.
At Shepherd we believe in learning through play and fostering each child's unique qualities and potential. Our program is developmentally appropriate with each concept building on the last. Literacy is infused into all aspects of the curriculum to reinforce learning.
We follow the NAEYC guidelines and provide early education learning experiences. Our preschool is a place where every child is given the opportunity to embrace their strengths and learn Christian values and life skills.
We offer half-days, full-days and extended care. Call us at 818.347.6784.
Children are naturally curious and eager to learn about the world. We offer a developmentally appropriate program where our students participate in
Gifts of God's Spirit
This year our theme is based on Galatians 5:22-23
"God's spirit makes us loving, happy, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self controlled.".
The children will be hearing bible stories and doing related crafts, songs and games that reflect this theme. We at SOV Preschool rejoice in the gift of your children and the opportunity to touch their lives.
