WHY US?

Shepherd of the Coast provides a loving, Christ centered Early Childhood Center that serves children from our immediate community and all over South Florida. We accept infants from six weeks and older through four year olds enrolling in Florida's state sponsored Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program. 

 

At Shepherd of the Coast Early Childhood Center we strive to provide your children with a loving, safe environment for learning as we nurture the development of the whole child. Our goal is not only to help your child gain readiness skills for reading, math, science, but also to help your child grow emotionally, socially and spiritually.

We encourage nurturing your child’s spiritual development by reading bible stories, praying and talking to one another about God and what He has done for us. Through the message of God’s word you can comfort, assure and affirm your child during times of emotional stress. The knowledge of God’s unconditional love is the best assurance for good emotional health.

BENEFITS OF EARLY EDUCATION AND THE VPK PROGRAM

  • The most important growth and development in the brain happens by the age of five.

  • The early years are the learning years.

  • A child’s ability to be attentive and to follow directions emerges in the early years.

  • Structured early learning fosters these abilities for later success in school and in life.

  • Pre-K prepares children to be ready for school. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests, and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems once they enter school.

  • They are also better prepared for Kindergarten, especially in the areas of pre-reading, pre-math, and social skills.

  • Pre-K promotes a love of learning in children.
