COVID-19 UPDATE January 2021

Little Shepherds is licensed by the State of Ohio Child Care licensing and we are licensed to operate for school year 2020-2021. We are operating under the Transitional Child Care Operations following the response to the coronavirus pandemic. We continually take under advisement all Franklin County and State of Ohio Public health orders. The Ohio County Risk Alert system and classroom specific positivity rates or exposures helps us determine Covid-19 emergency closings for our operation. Our staff and families follow our COVID-19 Health Screening for Attendance

We believe early education is essential and are grateful to be able to offer this part time program to the children of our community. We have prepared safe spaces, low ratios, separate class group entrances, enhanced daily cleaning measures and many safety protocols in order to provide a safe environment for children, families and staff members.

Families are urged to follow all public health orders in order to slow the spread of Covid-19. Let’s work together to keep Little Shepherds open. If you have any questions, please reach out to Sue Miller Director at littleshepherdschool@gmail.com or 614-209-4554.

We tend to the child’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual needs. We offer creative play and exploration, opportunities to grow in knowledge and insight, and the assurance that each child is a beloved gift of God.
