The Good Shepherd Preschool Opening in August

New Preschool Offers Discounted Fees for Children of Military Members and Police

The Fredericksburg area’s newest Christian preschool will open its doors for the 2020-2021 school year this August.

Operated 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.

“We are excited to support area families in offering this educational resource,” comments preschool director Gary Wagner. “Our objective is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to develop foundational learning skills.”

Wagner adds, “We especially appreciate our armed forces and police officers and their service to our nation and community. So we are offering a 10% discount on preschool tuition and on fees for before school care, extended care and after-school care for children whose parents are active-duty military or local law enforcement officers.”

To be eligible for this discount program, parents registering their children must be U.S. military members, currently in active-duty status or service-disabled veterans, or current local (city, county, state) uniformed law enforcement officers.

The Good Shepherd Preschool is currently accepting enrollments on line through the school’s website at http://gspreschool.highwayag.org. Clicking on the “Apply Now” button will direct parents to the preschool’s admissions information page.

The Good Shepherd Preschool is 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 is 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 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,” explains Wagner.

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