Shepherd of the Hills Christian Preschool

Shepherd of the Hills Church takes great effort to offer our community a high-quality Christian-based educational preschool for children, ages 3 & 4.  Depending on the age and day, your child will experience age appropriate academic instruction designed to equip them for Kindergarten.  Throughout the day, our dedicated staff guide our young students through a carefully and deliberately planned curriculum that includes reading, mathematics, learning to follow instructions and other skills designed to give children an edge when entering Kindergarten.  


In addition to the regular curriculum, our students visit and are able to check out books from our church's library once per week.  This activity is designed to do several things.  First, it allows the children a chance to do something special and fun, which is always appreciated.  It allows them the chance to practice making choices and exercising personal responsibility as they will need to return the book the following week.  And it also encourages family bonding.  It is our hope that these stories will serve as a way for families to read together.  Studies show children who are read to have a better time in school than those who are not.  We want to set your child up for as much success as possible, and this is one way in which we hope to accomplish that goal.  


Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, we will be introducing a foreign language component to our regular schedule.  Pastor Collin's wife, Melisa, will begin introducing our students to Spanish.  She is fluent in Spanish and grew up speaking it regularly with family in Mexico and the U.S.  Students will be introduced to single, easy-to-understand words like "please," "thank you," "hello" and "good-bye."  It is a well documented fact that people introduced to a foreign language early in life have an easier time learning it than adults, and tend to do better in school later on than children without that exposure.  It is our goal to prepare your child to be as successful as he/she can be and this is one more way we are working to accomplish that mission. 


A 2016 North Carolina study of more than 1 million children found students who attended a Pre-K program scored higher in math and reading, were about 1/2 as likely to need specialized education, and were almost 1/3 less likely to be held back a grade later in their education.

Psalm 1 says, "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on it he meditates day and night."  Proverbs 22 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."  With things like that in mind, our goal at Shepherd of the Hills Preschool is to help you prepare your child for Godly success in their faith, life and academic career.
