Our Preschool Philosophy
Shepherd of My Heart Christian Preschool is a ministry of North Street Christian Church. Our spiritual mission is to assist parents in raising their children with Christian values. We accomplish this through Christian curriculum and teaching about the love of God through Jesus Christ, as taught in His Word, the Bible.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he gets old he will not turn from it."
Our ministry is to the 3, 4, and 5 year olds within North Street Christian Church and families in the local community.
Our Educational Goals
Our educational goal for the Pre-Kindergarten class is to introduce basic fundamentals in pre-math, early literacy and writing skills.
Our three and four year old class focuses on social skills and developmental interaction.
Our program philosophy, for both classes, is to teach academic fundamentals and focus on a “3R” approach; Respect, Responsibility and Relationships.
Our Preschool Motto
The Three R’s
Respect: Towards parents, teacher, aides and for each other.
(See Ephesians 6:1-3; Romans 12:16-21; Romans 13:1-2.)
Relationship: Interaction with parents, teacher, aides and each other.
(See Luke 10:27.)
Responsibility: Training children to take initiative in making good choices and to learn to deal with the consequences of bad choices. (See Romans 13:8-13.)

As a parent, every day presents yet another chance to help your child experience the wonders and enjoyment of God. And, as parents, we have a Biblical duty to train our children in the way they should go. It should be second nature for us to direct our children to live and learn a spiritual and God - pleasing life.
Using Gospel Light’s Christian-based curriculum called “My God and Me” and “My Great Big God,” our preschool program is designed to aid parents in the educational development of their children as we promote the love and teaching of Jesus. During each class, children participate in several different active learning experiences that will help relate the Bible lesson to their lives.
Our classroom and staff ensure a safe and stimulating place for young children to learn, play and develop Christian values as they establish new and healthy relationships. Our Pre-kindergarten program will prepare children with the skills and knowledge they need for Kindergarten and the guidance they will need to make right decisions in school years to come.
