Extended Care

Extended Care

Our Shepherd Lutheran School’s Extended Care program exists to provide a secure, Christian, and caring environment for children enrolled in Our Shepherd Lutheran School’s preschool through 8th grade.


Extended Care is available:
Monday – Friday (Except State and Federal Holidays).  Extended Care will be available during school closings due to teacher in-services.  Availability of care for longer breaks (e.g., Fall, Christmas, and Easter Breaks) will be determined based on Extended Care staff availability, and will be announced a minimum of one week before the break begins.  

Before Care:      7:00 a.m. – 8:10 a.m.
After Care:         3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.


Extended Care Rate:   $5.00 per hour

Before Care: $5.00 per hour with a maximum charge of $5.00 for each day attended.  For those who are present less than an hour, the charge will be based on time spent in the morning care session at $1.25 per 15 minutes.  

After Care: $5.00 per hour with a minimum charge of $5.00 and a maximum charge of $12.50 for each day attended.  Extended Care will close at 6:00 p.m.  If you cannot pick up your child by 6:00 p.m., he/she will be waiting for you with an Extended Care staff member in the church lobby.  There will be a $2.50 charge for every 5 minutes your child is present after 6:00 p.m.
