Early Childhood Education & Therapy
To meet its mission of helping each child reach his or her full potential, Good Shepherd offers parents two options.
For parents of infants, toddlers or preschoolers, we offer care and education in a safe, loving setting for children who are both typically developing and those with special needs. Children can be 6 weeks to 6 years of age. With only 74 full-time students enrolled, your child will receive the individual attention he/she deserves.
For families seeking pediatric therapy (up to age 18), we offer individual and group therapy such as speech, occupational, physical, and developmental by our licensed therapists.
At the early learning center, up to thirty-three percent of children in each classroom can have special needs. These special needs can include the autistic spectrum, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, global developmental delays, and other disorders.
Each child benefits from having a teacher with a four-year degree that has been at Good Shepherd for years. Our lead teachers in the three preschool classrooms have 25 years of experience at Good Shepherd alone!
Interested primarily in therapy? Out-patient therapy is often covered by insurance and our therapy team can help you navigate the maze of paperwork.
Good Shepherd School for Children is an independent not-for-profit located in West St. Louis County and lead by a board of directors.
It is not affiliated with any other organization named "Good Shepherd" and has no religious affiliation.
