From keeping the classroom clean to keeping the kids from jumping in puddles every time you step outside, there are PLENTY of opportunities for chaos to abound. Anyone could get easily frustrated, exhausted, discouraged, or overwhelmed; there aren’t very many people who can handle the pandemonium that is preschool and enjoy it. Fortunately, Good Shepherd Day School is blessed with exactly those people.
Each class has a lead teacher (plus an assistant for two of the classes) who plans each day to maximize the time they spend with the children. The kids are taught all sorts of things: letters, numbers, writing, reading, shapes, colors, etc. But more importantly, they are taught about the Lord Each class reads a bible story every day, as well as singing worship songs and praying as a class, emphasizing the truths that God made, loves, and cares for each one of them.. The teachers who love the children so well teach them who God is and that they are loved by our Creator. They teach them how Christ has saved them and they teach them how to pray. Even more than all that, they demonstrate God’s love in all they do- in the way they love the students, families and other staff at the school.
The Day School as a whole is just an amazing ministry that reaches kids, during those crucial first few years of learning, and their families. We just finished out the school year last Friday, and I’m so blessed and thankful to have been part of it for the past year. If you haven’t before, I’d encourage you to come by the Day School. Come get involved with the summer camp, come read a book to the kids, come pray with them, or just come have a look! Regardless of whether or not you can get involved, I hope that you are encouraged to know that the Lord is working through this ministry that comes from your community, your church. He is doing great things at Good Shepherd!
For the first time, the Day School is continuing for six weeks of summer camp! It is going to be tons of fun. You can find out more about the camp here, it’s not too late to register! Anyone that fits the age range is welcome!
