JEMA’s design for the new Good Shepherd Childhood Center has been approved and is moving forward. The 12,000 sf facility will be located at the intersection of Page Blvd and Hodiamont Ave in north St Louis City. The design is a study in bringing natural light into every classroom and space within the building. The pedagogical philosophy is based on what Scandinavian’s call “friluftsliv”, which literally translates to “open air living”.
Good Shepherd is part of the Foundation for Strengthening Families (FSF), a non-profit that seeks to create stronger families through a unique early childhood philosophy of re-connecting children to nature.
