At Good Shepherd Parents' Day Out (PDO), we allow children to discover information through all their senses and from multiple angles; scientifically, artistically, musically, emotionally, and socially. We believe all children are competent, curious, and creative by nature. Children's questions and interests are the foundation for learning experiences. When children share their wonder with other children, their parents, and teachers, they engage in richer and deeper learning. We encourage children to pursue wonder and find joy at every turn, supporting the belief that each child we teach is unique. We provide the opportunity for children to affirm a good sense of self-esteem and love in a Christian environment. At the heart of our approach is nurturing determination to equip students to learn, collaborate, and create on extraordinary levels.
