At Shepherd of the Hills, it is a joy to minister to young children as they experience school for the first time. Our Early Childhood Program is fully licensed by the state of Nevada, and is staffed by teachers with education degrees who share the love and forgiveness of Jesus in their classrooms every day!  They strive to meet the individual needs of each child in a nurturing, loving and faith-filled environment where students grow in self-confidence, develop friendships and learn about the world around them.

Our preschool is licensed for  3’s and 4’s. Three year olds must be fully potty trained.  Four year olds must be four by August 1.  

The developmentally appropriate curriculum is based on the Nevada standards for preschool.  Your child will engage in purposeful play, hands-on experiences, and teaching-learning centers. Through the Learning Without Tears Program students learn correct pencil grip as well as letter and number recognition and formation. Pre-reading skills are reinforced with stories, poems, rhymes and sight word identification.  Math concepts are taught by sorting, classifying, sequencing, patterning and counting. Science activities encourage curiosity and wonder. Students develop their interests and skills during art, music and physical education activities. Social Studies opportunities focus on family, friends and community. Each day begins with prayer, praise and a Bible story, and students attend a weekly Chapel service. 

This comprehensive approach results in a program that brings your child closer to Jesus, builds a strong academic foundation and a love of learning and exploration. We invite you to join us!

Our day includes:

*Bible lesson

*Weekly chapel service

*Calendar/morning meeting

*Fine motor play




*Story time

*Small group instruction which includes math, writing, and letters

*Inside/outside play
