Infant Child Care Services

For Children 6 weeks - 16 months

Shepherd's Care Child Care is Licensed for 13 Infants.

We offer a ratio of 1 staff member to every 3 children—a ratio lower than the state requirement of 1:4.

We seek to be responsive to the parents' requests, such as introducing foods in the order dictated by the parents. We make every attempt to be responsive to the individual baby's needs.

Curriculum Goals

Our curriculum goals for infants work on areas of cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development, as well as creativity and Christian spirituality. In the infant room we focus on the development of a loving, consistent, and secure relationship between your child and his or her caregiver. Our efforts are directed toward providing a safe, loving and healthy environment for young children as well as building a mutually positive relationship with parents.

Classrooms

We have two infant classrooms, one licensed to serve 7 infants and the other to serve 6 infants.

Additional Tuition Information

Tuition rates at Shepherd's Care Child Care Center are competitive with those of other centers in the Maple Grove area. All tuition payments are due on Monday and a $10 late fee will be assessed if payment is not received by Wednesday. There is a late pick-up fee of $10 for every quarter hour or portion thereof past 6:00 p.m. Students are considered full time if they are enrolled 4 or more days a week for at least 5 hours a day. Part-time students pay normal daily rates for any scheduled days they are absent.

There is a 10% discount off the tuition when two children are enrolled from the same family. It is taken off the lower of the two tuition rates. Both enrollments must be on a full time basis for this discount to be used.


A $40 enrollment fee at time of application will hold a spot for your child for 2 weeks from application date. A $100 deposit is needed to hold a spot for your child with a start date of more than 2 weeks from the application date. This deposit will be applied to your child's account on your 5th week so long as your account is in good standing.
