Beginning Spring Term 2022:

  • Adults (parents/staff, etc.) in classrooms where there are children in attendance that are 4 years and younger, must wear masks while in the classroom.
    • Parents will be able to come in to classrooms to do drop-off/pick-up, if they choose. 
  • Masks continue to be optional for children 4 and under. 
  • Masks are optional for children 5 and older, adults (parents/staff/visitors) that are in classrooms where everyone in attendance is 5 and older, and in OLV common spaces (hallways, bathrooms, lounge spaces, etc.).


  • Prior to your child's first day of care, please read the OLV Parent Rules
  • Your child's temperature will be checked every day at drop-off and you will be asked health screening questions. Any child that fails the health screening will not be allowed into the center. For more information about the health screening, click here.
  • Parents will remain on the OSU main campus, as much as possible, while their child(ren) are being cared for at OLV.  If a parent must return home to complete their work that is currently acceptable.  The intent of OLV is to provide student and employee parents time to complete work and school tasks associated with their roles at OSU.
  • All OLV employees are required to follow OSU's COVID-19 Immunization Requirements
