Shepherd’s Little Flock is a non-profit daycare supported by the congregational budget of
Shepherd of the Hills, donations, fundraisers, and tuition.  The Early Childhood Ministry makes policies,
hires staff, and oversees the operations of the daycare and reports to the council and congregation
of Shepherd of the Hills.

Shepherd’s Little Flock began as a preschool program in 2000 and has evolved into a full daycare
 facility with an educational preschool program.  We are licensed by the state of Tennessee for 48 children,
ages 8 weeks to 5 years.    

We participate in the Federally Funded Food Program.
Our children receive breakfast, lunch and a snack every day.

Our facility has 3 separate rooms. 
(Each room has a Lead Teacher with either a degree in education or a CDA in early childhood)

  • Toddlers, ages 8 weeks to 2 years are together with a Lead Teacher, 2 teacher assistants, and 10 children.

  • The transitional room includes 16 children ages 2 to 4 with a 1 Lead Teacher and 2 teacher assistants. 

  • The preschool has 18 children, ages 4 to, with a Lead Teacher and 2 teacher assistants. 

The staff is lead by our director Sabrina Gunderson. 

She has an associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education as well as her Tennessee Early Childhood Program Administrator Credential. She has
operated her own daycare in MI, and has been the director at SLF since Nov.  2005.
Our staff has been trained in First Aid and CPR and is required to have at least
18 hours of early childhood training yearly. 

The preschool curriculum includes educational opportunities for children to
grow socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, musically, and intellectually. 
Kindergarten readiness skills are taught and practiced, especially for the 5 year old.

God continues to bless the efforts of many as we serve Him and the community of Crossville.  We believe in His desire to “let the little children
come unto me” as we “go and teach and make disciples of all nations”.
