Great school!!! Great Curriculum!!! My children went there for a year in 2009 and were very sad when we moved!! My husband and I were very happy with the staff, the director was very friendly and professional!! We refer all our friends there, even though our children are no longer there!!

I love this school! My son started when he was 2 and before he was 3 he knew all his ABC's, could spell his name, all colors, shapes and his vocaulary and manners are amazing because of this school and the time they take with these kids. Ms. Kristen is AMAZING with the 2yr old class and never limits them to only 2yr old work, she really teaches them as much as possible and even stuff the 3/4yr old class is doing. They have a great small facility, they helped tremendously with potty training, have an abundance of toys, music, they go to Chapel every Tuesday. It is just great school and the kid/teacher ratio is amazing. Great playground, organized meal times, nap times, quiet times. I can't say enough good things about it. When my other son turns 2, I am signing him up right away!

This is a wonderful preschool my daughter is spelling, adding, and learning to read. Much better than just day care. She's been in this school for a little over a year. I recommended this school to friends and gamily.its also great that she's learning aboit Christian values

My wife and I love this preschool. We been sending both of our son's to Shcpherd Center Preschool. The teacher are very good with the kids. Teaching them Christian values, both of are son's learn to reach before going on to Kindergarten. Every time I pick up my son David, when he see me, he first put his toysaway before we leave. I think that's great. The administrator is very friendly, they work great with the teachers and parents. If you would like to talk to me about this preschool, call me at my office, 626-388-1600 and ask for David B.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
