Shepherd's Fold began as an extended ministry of Sierra Evangelical Lutheran Church to provide quality, faith based childcare for the church and the community.  Through this extended ministry we strive to offer a Christian setting in which children can grow, learn, develop physically, spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and socially.  We believe that the early childhood learning center can expand a child's perception of God, of other people, and of the physical world in which we live.

 

We believe that a Christian oriented early childhoold learning center offers young children one of the best opportunities for achieving the goals of Christian education outside the home.  The center can reinforce the parent's efforts to develop their child's healthy personality, form sound values, and develop a caring attitude which forms the foundation for a positive self image and good relationships with others.  We believe that dedicated, Christian teachers can provide young children with numerous opportunities for growth and development.  We believe that the early childhood learning center will witness the love of God through Christ to children, their families and the community.

 

Our Objectives:

To encourage development of the whole child in ways which enable him/her to be more secure in the love of God.

To teach basic Christian truths related to the child's experiences and level of development.

To encourage the child to develop self-confidence, concern for others, co-operation in work and play, and a spirit of love and sharing.

To increase the child's skills in listening, self-discipline, conversation, creative self-expression, and independent work and play.
