Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Shepherd of the Desert! Research shows that participation in a high quality early childhood program is a huge indicator of future success, and we take this research very seriously as is evident in all that we do at SOTD.

Our school serves families with children from ages 18 months through 5 years old and provides an outstanding educational experience in a Christ-centered, caring community with a comprehensive, creative curriculum. By talking, reading, singing, playing, drawing or using other ways to communicate, we focus on developing STEM skills through play and exploration. It is never too early to start! Our goal is to inspire students to become life-long learners both spiritually and academically.

In our 36th year of exemplary education, Shepherd of the Desert has touched thousands of families and provides a safe and loving environment for little ones in a developmentally appropriate setting. Our staff is highly motivated and provides a well-rounded, hands-on early childhood program with an emphasis in social and emotional growth as well as literacy, math, science, technology, engineering and the arts. Every day a student enters our facility, he or she grows spiritually, socially, independently and academically by working together, asking questions, and exploring the world around us.

I would personally love to share with you all of the great things that are happening here at Shepherd of the Desert and welcome you into our family! Please feel free to contact the preschool office at (480) 860-0488 to arrange a tour of our campus or allow us to answer any questions that you may have about our program.
