Good Shepherd Christian School is truly a gem!  My daughter struggled with separation anxiety and often had difficulties adjusting to new environments. However, the toddler teacher Miss Elise quickly helped her feel safe and comfortable. After just a few days, she was excited to go to school every morning and came home talking about her teacher and new friends. The student to teacher ratio is fantastic and I like how my daughter is exposed to Mandarin throughout the day. It is clean and very well-run with loving / caring teachers. I highly recommend it!

“It was our first time enrolling our son in preschool. At first, we were nervous because my son is cautious in new situations and with unfamiliar people. But the teachers are so incredible that they made my son feel comfortable and adapted to the new environment very quickly. And the teachers and kids’ ratio is great, so all of the students can receive individual attention. My son is excited every morning about going to school. Now he is more social and educated.  We are very thankful to have discovered Good Shepherd Christian preschool. We highly recommend this school.”

“I would like to recommend and share my son’s preschool since they still have openings. It’s called Good Shepherd Christian School in Cupertino close to De Anza College. At first I was attracted by the clean, comfortable environment, and it’s a Montessori based school. My son was almost 4 and never been to any daycare or preschool, I was worried in the beginning but it turns out he loves it and gets along with the friends there. He enjoys sharing what he learned and did in school everyday such as planting, art, songs, alphabets, etc. Also I can see the change on him, like being gentle and leading his little sister. It’s the first year of the school but they have patient and experienced teachers. Contact them if you would like to know more!”

“I have been looking for a preschool for my granddaughter in Cupertino for a while. But after I toured the newly opened Good Shepherd Christian School, observed the classroom and playtime, I immediately signed up. Sure enough, my 2 years old granddaughter absolutely loves the school. Her teacher is so encouraging and caring that she was able to quickly adapt to the new environment and thrives. She is so happy there that she often does not want to leave. Seeing her so happy makes me feel very happy too. When I pick her up, her teacher would give me a recap and the highlights of her day. Knowing that she is well taken care of allows me to do my work with a peace of mind. They also have various holidays potluck and events for the family so the parents have a chance to meet one another and form a community. The teachers have many years of experiences, and are caring and motivated. A good balance of indoors and outdoors activities helps the kids learn and stay engaged. They use Montessori method while also foster creativity. The school is right next to the Jollyman Park which makes the outdoor playground feels more spacious and close to nature. They take students up to kindergarten. “

As the name says it, it’s Good Shepherd Christian School (GSCS). This is the second preschool I brought my identical twin girls to. Without any exaggerations, it has exceeded my best expectations. My girls came here a week after their second birthday. In the past three months, not only have my children received well-rounded loving care, I myself as an exhausted mom was also shepherded with such peace of mind by the loving /caring teachers here. My girls struggled with separation anxiety in their first preschool, ate very little for lunch, and the nap length varied much. When they came to GSCS and joined Ms. Elise at the toddler’s class, they utterly enjoyed school since day one. There were no hard feelings on my side to say bye at drop-off, because there were no hard feelings or tears on their side, since day one. Their lunch boxes and water bottles came back empty, and the nap-time was consistently over two hours (more than how long they would nap at home), since day one. Every time I go to pick them up from school, I could tell they have enjoyed their day. And that happy mood they bring home! I was especially delighted to discover that my twins get along with each other much better than before. They have started to act more like friends than competitors. On several occasions, I caught how Ms. Elise help them set boundaries, express feelings, and use the right words as “please” and “thank you”. In the past couple of weeks, I heard from other parents and friends in church that the girls have grown so much in confidence, in character, and are much more outgoing now. I was glad! The first time they sang the prayer that they learned from school, I was thrilled when I understood the words they were trying to sing. Some times, they took the initiative to sing it before dinner. There were too much to say. I want to end with toys. The school employs Montessori method, and every set of toys is arranged in a tray. On the day I brought the girls to tour the school, Ms. Elise has already started asking them to clean up and put away the tray before reaching for another tray. What made me so happy is that one of my girls would never clean up her toys until a week ago. This is a silent “Yay!” from a tired mother of twins. As I am writing this testimonial, I still felt this is too good to be true, because everything literally turned around overnight. I don’t know how to explain any part of it, but only want to say “Thank you”! If anything, I would recommend GSCS with no reservation!
