 Thank you for your interest in Our Shepherd Lutheran Child Care. Unfortunately at this time our Infant and Toddler classrooms (ages birth through age 3) are completely full for the year. Additionally, due to the new regulations aimed at keeping children safe during the COVID crisis, spots are very limited since our maximum group size has decreased in each classroom. Please check back at a later date for changes in availability.
