About Shepherd's Gate

What is Shepherd's Gate


Shepherd’s Gate has been providing Child Care services to the Children & Families across Long Island since 1998. Our Programs Include Before & After School Child Care, Summer Camp, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. We are Licensed by New York State and are continually trained to stay up to date with the most current ideas and trends in child care.


Our Mission


Our mission is to provide an environment for children that will give parents the peace of mind to go to work knowing that their child is in a safe, nurturing, and enriching setting. Through qualified teachers, children will be encouraged to explore the wonders of learning, building self-confidence while increasing their knowledge and skill.  Parents will be encouraged to participate in the learning process as well extracurricular activities which will strengthen and reinforce the education of the students.


School Philosophy

Our Philosophy has always been rooted in the promotion of high academic standards in a warm and nurturing environment. One which encourages each child to strive for his or her own full potential. Our expectation is that each child grow and learn in an environment that respects differences and instills an acceptance of each child as an individual, whose uniqueness enriches us all.
