Why Good Shepherd?

DEVELOPMENTALLY balanced program that has been created especially for our students by our talented staff.

AN IMPORTANT ASSET to this program is the benefit children have in bridging over to their next year at GSES with different combinations of children in a familiar setting and working with familiar teachers on our own beautiful campus.

FOR CHILDREN NEW TO OUR SCHOOL:  This is an ideal way to become acquainted with new friends and staff.

FOR ENTERING 3-YEAR-OLDS:  This program gently introduces them to a “step up” in their progression to the next level and helps to ease anxiety over meeting new friends and teachers.

OUTDOOR PLAY! We spend a large part of our morning on the playground in a camp-like atmosphere with a range of stimulating, theme-related activities appropriate for our youngest to our more mature campers.

Rachel Duree

I moved to Austin thirteen years ago in search of love and adventure, and I was fortunate to find both. My husband and I live in Circle C with our two amazing little boys who keep us busy and make our hearts so very full. My oldest son Matthew is heading into fifth grade and my tiny love Noah will be in second. They are both proud Good Shepherd graduates and jump at any opportunity to go back and visit. In my free time I enjoy traveling, cheering the loudest at my kids’ sporting events, and taking on the occasional home design project. I have been a teacher at Good Shepherd since 2012 and I feel incredibly grateful to spend my days doing what I love most.  I am passionate about all things related to child development and truly enjoy these magical early childhood years.

Summer Adventure Camp at GSES will be here soon! We can't wait!
