Early Childhood: Half-Day Program

Early Childhood Half-Day at Our Shepherd!

2021-2022 School Year

Monday - Friday (half days)   8:25 a.m. - 11:20 a.m.

The half-day early childhood program is designed to mirror the full-day program, but as a half-day option.  Independence is increased as learning expands to prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond.
