The Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center is a Christian preschool and half-day kindergarten located in Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in West Des Moines. Since 1992, we have been helping students develop a positive self-concept, a healthy personality and a foundation for life-long learning. Our caring and committed teachers are required to hold a degree in Education and have a passion for teaching young children.
At the Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center, we believe that every child is created special and unique by God; that children learn best through relevant, hands-on sensory play experiences and in an environment that is nurturing, challenging and entertaining. Our preschool and half-day kindergarten programs are designed to facilitate the social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive and physical development of each child. We provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Small class size allows for individual attention and quality instruction, suiting each child’s learning style and ability. We promote an attitude of love, celebration and respect for God, fellow human beings and the earth which God has given us. Application of Christian values, prayer, Bible stories and Chapel Chats are an integral part of the program.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a tour of our preschool or half-day kindergarten, we look forward to your call! ELC Director Diane Hensley can be reached at 515-225-1952 ext. 114.
