The Good Shepherd Mission

Good Shepherd School for Children is dedicated to providing quality inclusive education for children with special needs and typically developing children from ages six weeks to six years.  Exceptional learning and growth experiences are supplemented by therapeutic services as needed, up to age eighteen. 

Early Childhood Education & Therapy

Located in St. Louis County, Good Shepherd School for Children is a local, not-for-profit early childhood education and therapy center. We serve children with and without special needs, ages six weeks to six years, and up to age 18 in our therapy services. 

 

As a parent, you are seeking childcare that both nurtures and educates your child. With only 74 full-time students enrolled, your child will receive the individual attention he/she deserves (Most for-profit centers now handle 125-250 students).

 

Your child's teacher has a degree and has been at Good Shepherd for years. For example, the lead teachers and teaching assistants in the three preschool classrooms have 50+ years experience at Good Shepherd alone!

 

You will also be pleased with our reliability; we've only closed once in the past three winters!

NAEYC Accreditation

We're both excited and proud to share that Good Shepherd School for Children has been re-accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) through November, 2019.  

 

On nine out of the 10 program standard, our scores were above 90%.

 

Our scores on Health, Teachers, Families, Community Relationships, and Leadership and Management include credit for meeting emerging criteria—so we’re ahead of the game!

 

Fifty percent of our classrooms were evaluated. Scores ranged from 93%-98%!

 

Congratulations to our staff!!!
