“When we were considering moving to Irvington from New York City, we were looking for a program for my then 2 year old son. Two people, one a grandmother and another a colleague with children, highly recommended Good Shepherd. They definitely raised my expectations and I have to say, Good Shepherd has exceeded them. The nurturing environment fosters a great learning experience which is fun for children. My now four year old and two year old both attend Good Shepherd. They have made great friends and look forward to going to school. My son came home the other day teaching me words in sign language. We also have found a great network of parents who have been so helpful since we moved to Irvington. This is a school where friendships are built and foundational skills are learned, which will last a lifetime.”
