The Fredericksburg area’s newest preschool – The Good Shepherd Preschool – will open its doors for the 2019-2020 school year in August 2019.

Being established as an educational ministry of Highway Assembly of God, The Good Shepherd Preschool will offer a strong academic program that integrates Christian character and biblical truths into every area of learning.

The Good Shepherd Preschool will be hosted at Highway Assembly of God, centrally located in the City of Fredericksburg just 1/2-mile south from the interchange of Jefferson Davis Hwy. with Rte. 3, at 2221 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Fredericksburg, VA 22401.

The preschool will be housed in a spacious educational building that features several classrooms, a fellowship hall/multipurpose area and a gymnasium. Outdoor recreational areas include a large sports field and fenced playground.

“Our objective is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to develop foundational learning skills,” emphasizes preschool director Gary Wagner. “Our teaching staff will use a carefully designed curriculum enriched by music and physical education, arts and crafts, dramatic and creative play, and field trips, for example, to support all dimensions of child development.”

Wagner adds, “We will be intentional in training children to grow academically, to be spiritually prepared for Christian service, and to develop a lifelong Christian worldview, while having a lot of fun.”

The Good Shepherd Preschool will offer both three-day-a-week and five-day-a-week programs for both 3-year-old and 4-year-old children. All classes will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon and will be supervised by experienced lead teachers assisted by classroom aides.

Additional services offered by the preschool will include before school care from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., extended care from 12 noon to 3 p.m., and after-school care from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Good Shepherd Preschool will begin accepting enrollments for the 2019-2020 school year during a “Registration Open House” on January 15, 2019 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., hosted at Highway Assembly of God in the church’s fireside room, and on January 18 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon in the education building.

Following the Registration Open House, preschool registrations can be mailed to the church. The registration form can be downloaded from the preschool’s website, and is also available at the church.
