Our Happy FAmilies

Take a closer look and see what our familes have to say.

Over the last 40 years, while so much has changed in our community and the way we educate our kids, one constant presence has been Little Shepherd's Nursery School. Preparing its students, both socially and academically, for elementary school has been the hallmark of Little Shepherd's since its inception.  As a former student myself you can imagine the joy I experienced to watch my two nephews and all three of my own children receive a top-level education at the same neighborhood school I attended. As parents look for pre-school options, I encourage you give Little Shepherd's a look - the staff is amazing (with decades of experience), the class sizes are small, and you can't beat the tuition. Little Shepherd's is truly a gem here in Santa Clarita!!
"Little Shepherd's Nursery School is a pillar for young childhood education in our community. The decision to send our three children there was an easy one for Simon and myself as soon as we walked through the little gate and felt a peace come over us. To this day our family still thinks back on all of our amazing memories at Little Shepherd's with fondness and consider it our "happy place". The staff are genuine and professional instilling in children the developmentally appropriate curriculum that has given our three children such success in elementary school. Thank you Little Shepherd's for being a constant source of comfort and knowledge to us."

This school is a hidden gem. My daughter started when she was 2 and I was afraid she would cry everyday when being dropped off since that's normally what kids that age do when transitioning from home to a school setting, however my daughter only cried the first two days then she was excited to go to school. They have an affordable 2 or 3 day program and offer after hour care as well. The classes are small which gives the teacher 1 on 1 time with each student. For those kids that are not fit for the 1 teacher to 30 kids. However during breaks they do play with other classrooms which is perfect for the child that loves to interact with a lot of kids. My daughter had learned a lot and will be back in the Fall. PS: At the end of the school year they received a "ME" book their teacher puts together of some of their artwork and pictures of them throughout the year! Cutest thing ever.
Thank you Little Shepherds for walking alongside as we parented and for the educational foundation you helped instill in our children. Being a former preschool teacher & director I have high standards for our children’s education. When I began researching preschools I knew I wanted a safe, loving, clean & comfortable environment for our little ones to learn in. I expected teachers to be professional, educated, energetic, patient, and of course loving. Little Shepherds met those standards with flying colors. Both of our daughters attended Little Shepherds and just loved it! Their excitement showed while playing with their friends on the shaded playground, creating art projects in class, singing at holiday performances, and sharing their new found knowledge each day. We are so grateful to have had our children learn and grow in a loving environment with teachers & families that share our same values.

Both of my children went here for their pre-school years ... from about 2005-2008. It's truly one of the best kept secrets in SCV! They learn by play, they offer great hours (and extended hours!) and my children loved attending. As a parent, I knew they were getting what they needed to get ready for K, but also a whole lot of FUN and love. Seriously- BEST KEPT SECRET.
