Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the children under our care with a safe caring and nurturing environment which will help them grow intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, sociably and physically.

Welcome to our newly remodeled preschool! Some changes include a fresh new coat of paint throughout the school, newly renovated bathrooms, beautiful new flooring, a gorgeous new playground, and because our number one concern is your child’s health and safety, we have installed new IQ Air filters in every classroom. Our child development experts have also taken their time to curate toys and other learning tools that are developmentally appropriate for the age group we serve. Our school is conveniently located on the corner of 25th St and Patton and attached to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church with a beautiful view of the harbor. You can’t miss us! We are excited to start this new journey with you and your family at the Shepherd’s Fold Preschool. We can’t wait to meet you!

Our Philosophy
Shepherd’s Fold Preschool shares the love of God with the children and their families. The Philosophy of our Preschool centers on Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Play-Based Learning
Children learn through age-appropriate play and hands-on experiences. Literacy, math, science and faith are all taught through play, story-telling, songs, exploration, and experimentation. Children also learn and grow cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically through hands-on experiences guided by teachers in small groups both inside the classroom and outside in nature.

Our Dedicated Staff
Our talented and caring teachers bring their own rich experience, professional expertise, and inspiring dedication to our school. We care deeply about the children that we serve, and it is this bond that drives us to do everything we can to ensure that each child develops a life long love of learning.

Director- Ms. Yessi
Hello, my name is Yesenia Zarate, but you can call me Ms. Yessi. I am the second eldest out of 9 siblings, so as you can imagine, growing up in a large family gave me the necessary skills needed to be creative and get things done. I learned how to be compassionate and considerate, while being firm when I needed to be. Naturally helping to raise my younger siblings gave me the leadership skills I needed to create a place where children have the opportunity to grow and learn in a safe and nurturing environment. I graduated from Cal State Long Beach, with a BA in Child Development Family Studies and Family Life Education in the Spring of 2019. During this same time, I had the opportunity to volunteer at homeless shelters and to care for senior citizens, and also to work with families of underprivileged children. I grew to realize that while I enjoyed being able to help people, I recognized that my heart lies with caring for young children. I have over 7 years of formal experience as a teacher and childcare provider. I look forward to working with you to help create a place where your student can grow and develop into the unique individual God meant them to be.
