Children at Colfax

What makes Shepherd's Way unique?

At Shepherd's Way Day School, we believe that the children are very special individuals, eager and ready to learn about themselves and their world.  We believe that by providing them with a loving environment, rich with opportunities and new experiences, that we can help them to reach their full potential.  Our slogan "giving our best when it means the most", has real meaning to us at Shepherd's Way.  During a child's first few years, his body and brain is developing faster than it will for the rest of his lifetime.  We have an awesome responsibility to meet this challenging and exciting time with excellence.
