Our Little Village | Dixon

Spring term care begins on Monday, April 4th! Registration will open on March 9th and remain open until the 30th at noon.
OLV|Dixon will be moving back to it's original location in Dixon and will no longer be in the 121 suite. To access OLV, you will need to go through the Dixon check-in and take an immediate left. OLV|Dixon is under the stairs next to the restrooms/across from the basketball courts. More information regarding the location and how to access the space will be included in your registration confirmation email.


Our Little Village (OLV), administered by OSU’s Family Resource Center, is short-term reservable child care for OSU students and employees. Child care is available for children ages 5 months through 10 years and will adhere to our COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols. During this time, OLV child care is restricted to cohort care (same children in the same room on the same days) in order to minimize risk of exposure. Due to the cohort care restriction, you are only able to sign up for one cohort per child for the term and we encourage you to choose the same day and time for each child in your family (for example, MTW cohort at Dixon for all of your children).

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
