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.
