Pre-School Program: GSA Lambs

Our aspiration at Good Shepherd Academy’s Little Lambs Pre-school is to provide a foundation for Catholic values and traditions, as well as stimulate early childhood education. Through art, science exploration, music, and literacy (with an emphasis on letter sounds and fine motor skills), we strive to provide a proper academic and social environment that will prepare our students for kindergarten and beyond.  In our warm and friendly atmosphere, our children flourish through dramatic play and fun physical activities (which encourage gross motor skills) that incorporate both cooperative and independent play. Good Shepherd Academy’s Little Lambs Pre-school ensures that each child be nurtured and guided to reaching his or her full creative, intellectual, social, and independent self.

Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

On Monday, January 15, both Mr. Jadran and Mrs. Calicchio's Pre-K 3 and 4 classes participated in a special craft in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Along with the craft, the teachers expressed the importance of being kind to one another despite our differences, guided by the book "Kindness to Share from A to Z" by Todd and Peggy Snow. 


STEM Challenge

On Friday, November 10, Mr. Jadran's pre-k 3 class participated in a "Three Little Pigs STEM Challenge". The children were split into 3 groups, using straw, sticks, and "bricks" (blocks) to build a barrier to protect their little pig from the Big Bad Wolf. Each barrier was tested with a blow dryer, showing the children that the lighter materials will be the first to blow away while heavy objects do not.
