COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

 Summer Sign Up Coming Soon!


Shepherd's Flock Preschool believes every child deserves the opportunity for a high quality educational experience. We offer physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual nurturing in a safe, Christian environment, fostered and supported as part of the mission and ministry of Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church.


  • Each child is accepted as an individual
  • Children learn by playing through a mixture of teacher and child initiated activities and hands-on learning
  • We incorporate Christian faith into our everyday experiences
  • Children learn that they are nurtured and loved by God
  • Our activities promote language, literacy, math, science, arts and large motor play
  • We create a high-quality learning environment that enables every child to become a creative and confident thinker.
  • We partner with families to support their child’s learning and development
  • Parents are welcomed into the classroom at all times.


It is important to develop routines that are predictable and consistent to help children feel secure and become increasingly independent. The following is a typical day:

  • Welcome/Sign in
  • First Circle – Prayer, hello song, discuss area of study
  • Interest Areas – Learning stations and small groups may be during this time
  • Second Circle – Sharing bag, music and movement, story
  • Snack Time
  • Large Motor – Outside, Gym or YMCA


"The Shepherd’s Flock Preschool has provided a wonderful, nurturing and learning environment for both of our daughters. The teachers are caring and help the students in their educational, emotional and spiritual growth.  Our girls love going to school!  We couldn’t ask for anything more from a preschool.”  - Katie Denuh, Parent 

"The Shepherd’s Flock Preschool program does a fantastic job of preparing children for kindergarten...  Not only do the kids know their numbers and letters, but also they are great members of the school community. " – Rachel Jensen, Parent

“Both of our children have attended Shepherd's Flock Preschool and I cannot say enough great things about their experience and my own. From the nurturing teachers, to the comfortable learning environment and the flexible options available we have loved everything about it and would recommend this school to anyone looking for a preschool for their young children.” - Leslie Helmbacher, Parent
