What is your inclement weather policy?
LHCCC closes if Minneapolis Public Schools close due to ice and snow emergencies. If MPS are not in session at the time of inclement weather, the Director may decide to close LHCCC at their discretion, following the same guidelines.
What is your affiliation with the church?
LHCCC is not part of the church and do not incorporate religion into our lesson plans or daily activities. The LHCCC community welcomes children, families, and staff of all different beliefs and backgrounds!
Are lunch and snacks provided?
We provide a small morning and afternoon snack as well as a hot lunch that meets the USDA requirements. Our kitchen manager has a certified food licence.
How can I get on a wait list for a classroom?
Our wait list is a first come, first serve basis. There is no fee to be on the wait list. If you are interested please email us at with the birthday or expected birth date and date you are looking to have your child start.
Families that qualify for our sliding fee scale or scholarship program move to the top of the wait list so we are better able to serve our community. Being on a waitlist for a classroom does not guarantee that a spot will open up for your child.
What are your immunization requirements?
All children enrolled at LHCCC must follow the state of Minnesota's recommended schedule of immunizations.
If an immunization is medically contraindicated for a child, or if there is laboratory confirmation that a child is already immune to certain diseases against which immunization is normally required, the student may submit a statement to this effect, signed by a health care provider, in order to be considered exempt from the contraindicated or unnecessary immunization. LHCCC does not enroll children who are not vaccinated because of conscientious objection.
