About Shepherd Family Day Care
Begin the early education and learning journey with an in-home environment at Shepherd Family Day Care. Shepherd Family Day Care serves the parents and families of Los Angeles with a home-based care and learning program with small group sizes in a cozy setting. In-home is popular with parents for the ability to transition children comfortably from the hours at home to the hours in a learning environment. Children have the benefits of learning and playing alongside other children and will see their life skills develop! With a full-time schedule, as well, Shepherd Family Day Care allows parents to work and assume other responsibilities while their children are playing and learning amongst their peers. Children have the opportunity to get used to the natural rhythms of a daily structured learning environment with a full-time schedule, which can help smooth the transition into kindergarten and future education. The full-time schedule allows plenty of opportunities for creativity and fun, too, as the day always feels too short when you’re having fun! Shepherd Family Day Care teaches a play-based curriculum that values self-directed, interactive, intuitive learning by and for children. Students at play-based schools get the opportunity to participate in theme-based, hands-on activities with staff that facilitate and direct the discovery process. Through these hands-on activities, students develop social, cognitive and emotional skills built through the cooperation process with their peers. A play-based approach also can spark a love of learning that will be foundational for students throughout their early years of formal school.
