ABC Barn Children's Place is a community ministry of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church to serve the families in our neighborhood. Our program seeks to enrich the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual lives of preschool children, and to provide before and after school programs for elementary age children. We strive to support the family unit through our caring and professionally competent staff. The staff of the Center will always be chosen on the basis of a friendly, caring way with children, and on professional training and competence. Required child/staff ratios and other mandated regulations will always be considered as minimum requirements only.
It is not an objective of the ABC Barn Children's place to provide specific religious or parochial instruction.
ABC Barn Children’s Place has an outstanding program and very dedicated staff. My two older children started when they were 2 and 4 years old, and even at those young ages, it was evident that teachers nurtured learning and social development.
My children and I were greeted by name and with a smile whenever we were at the school. Teachers took the time to check in with me daily about how my kids were doing. It was through our relationship with the school that also opened up the opportunity to experience the ministry of Shepard of the Valley Church next door. My kids would tell me how much fun they had with music during chapel time and even introduced me to the church pastor at the time."
