Health & Safety

Ensuring your child’s well-being as well as providing a positive experience are our top priorities. 

Our Mission

We strive to create a safe and inspiring environment for education and growth, while encouraging the development of a positive self-concept for each child. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about us; including the various preschool and daycare programs we have to offer, our spacious and well-equipped Plainview facility, our talented teachers and staff, and the love we share every day with the children who come through our doors.

  • Our Campus
    Located on five acres, our campus includes the school building with spacious classrooms, gymnasium, and library, a large fenced-in playground set away from the road, the church, and meeting cottages. We are fully air-conditioned. These facilities provide a safe, spacious, and attractive setting for the children.
  • Class Size
    A low student/teacher ratio is one of the significant advantages Good Shepherd provides. Class sizes meet the requirements of the N.Y. State Office of Children & Family Services.
  • Pastoral Care
    School families are always welcome to participate in the worship life and activities of the parish and are also invited to call on our parish pastor if they are in need of pastoral care.

What Our Parents Say

Good Shepherd is a family-oriented school that allows you to feel safe knowing that your precious ones are in good hands when you drop them off. The teachers are great at sending you photos and videos. Seeing them blossom from day one to the end where their personalities shine through is priceless when you’re not there. So thankful for this great first experience with school and am looking forward to sending my little one back.

This is our first year for our daughter attending and we are so happy. The way everything is organized, the warm feeling you receive from teachers and employees as you walk in and out of the school. The curriculum and safety, the activities to keep them busy and together. Everything is perfect for my daughter! Thank you!

Evelyn Kontonis

My son loved his first year at Good Shepherd! The staff is very warm and welcoming and the curriculum is age appropriate and stimulating. I particularly appreciated the appropriateness of the religious ed portion of the program. It was taught in such a way that was enjoyable, understandable and relatable to my 3 year old. We’ll be back again next year with 2 more of my children!

We know that where your child begins their learning and development outside of the home environment makes all the difference in shaping their future, and this is not a responsibility that we take lightly. 

We have limited availability in some of our preschool offerings for the current school year, and are more than happy to accept admission for new students at any point during the school year.

If you are currently a parent of an enrolled student, we hope you will bookmark this site and come back often to keep up to date on our preschool’s events and activities.

If you are a prospective parent searching for a preschool or full-time child care center in the Plainview area, we invite you to schedule a tour of our facility, talk to our current parents, and discover how we can meet your family’s needs.
