IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

  • Prior to your child's first day of care, please read the OLV Parent Rules
  • 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.
